A Day At The Races

No, not horses but rather Stage 6 of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour. Results are already posted and how exciting for us ex-'billanookians' with Simon and Trent right at the pointy end. Clarkey brought it home in 12th today and now sits almost 15 minutes clear in the Young Riders Competition, only having to keep it upright tomorrow to take it out. Trent on the other hand still has plenty to race for, a mere 2 seconds shy of the stage win today, he's third overall 14 seconds down.

For anyone that isn't working tomorrow, yes I have to work, get down to watch the final days action. The stage is set for a repeat of last years captivating racing with every bonus sprint being fought out. Of course I expect everyone to have everything crossed for Trent, but if that doesn't work out then throw your support behind Joost Van Leijen, sitting in 4th, and the Netherlands National Team. Having had to travel light they weren't able to bring any time trial gear, we helped them out for today with some go-fast bits from Lew and Corima. Really nice guys and Joost will be on the stupid light Lew Pro VT-1's tomorrow as well.

In other news the Anthem is sold, for real this time, and I'm about 10 days away from being back on the bike. To celebrate the new ride should show up this week. I'm back on the Yeti program, hooray! ASR-SL here I come.

Yeti, niiiiice. On a diet tho I take it to make it to your standards?! You must be hanging to be rolling around, although you aren't missing much in spring...

actually heavy by my standards, REBA's! looking to be around 10.3kg.

will enjoy getting out on the bike, spring is good for making you fast in summer. but i doubt i'll be bothered racing anyway.
