Holiday Over


Daylight savings is upon us and with it comes crit season. My torture of choice this morning was Carnegie Caulfield's opener at the popular Glenvale circuit. As always the report and results are up in a very timely manner here.

48 starters in A grade covered 47.5km in their hour + 3 laps. I spent most of the time trying to keep myself thereabouts in the first 10 wheels and getting some much needed leg speed. Everyone was on high alert with a protour representative fresh off the plane being very closely marked.

As the bell lap came there were three away. Sitting third in the lead out I swung off through the last corner and kept well clear of the potential carnage that followed. The break just held on, but more to the point it was then bakery time. A first time visit to Topbread in Glen Waverly for a delicious Blueberry Danish.
10 points to the first person who guesses who said protour representative was...hint above.
