  1. Comm Games Team

    Do you follow the WTS races? if so you would have seen Aus have had a man on the 2nd step of the podium twice this season over this distance, with a Spanish guy on the top step. Spain are not Commonwealth, so yeah we do have a very good shot.

    Hmm, interesting.
  3. Super league is back

    She obviously chose not to, maybe wanted more $$. She was talking about trying to qualify for the mountain bike at Comm Games also, might need to get a few races there under her belt, girl can't do everything.
  4. Super league is back

    It looks like most of the top guys chose to sign and race, females not so much. This doesn't mean they weren't selected and approached, just chose, or were not available, to race. In saying that there are some dam good athletes there though.
  5. Super league is back

    It appears they aren't actually stopping anyone racing a month prior or post, maybe they just wanted notification, incase somebody started an event in direct competition to superleague format. Most athletes are flying in from Rotterdam, having raced only a few days ago. Also Gold coast wts was only a couple of weeks post Hamilton Island.

    excess protein the body converts to something similar to carbs
  7. Gentle beats Duffy to win at Montreal

    just like to say YOU ARE SHITTING ME A 1st place for aus and this is all it gets?? 3 comments. Well done Ashleigh, so excited to finally be seeing some top results for Aus, with you and Birtwhistle, the balance is finally coming back around to the green and gold. Tokyo is looking like aus will again be in the mix.
  8. Hamburg and commonwealth games selection

    I thought that would been the finish of his race right there, that last 1700m must been bloody painful,

    Just give it a rest. I have heard directly from athletes who actually know how it went down,and when athletes were approached and asked to race and sign contracts for multiple races quite a few women obviously couldn't. I have been told that once a few of the top guys signed then the others followed. They do talk to each other you know, and no-one wanted to be disadvantaged in case the races were around ITU racing if their competition weren't also. With women there was more hesitation, when quite a few of the top women couldn't sign early, others were much slower to follow. I do know some who did, but obviously there were not enough. Once the trial race proved successful it was a different story, all wanted in, and now we are going to witness these great races. so now please just STFU and let us enjoy.

    Don't think so, was selected to race Hamburg (the last auto Commonwealth Games selection race) over other Aus athletes who would have no doubt been desperate for a start, then was a no show.
  11. Hamburg and commonwealth games selection

    Watched it, was awesome result, what a kick from Birtwhistle.
  12. Hamburg and commonwealth games selection

    just read his twitter, calf gone.
  13. Hamburg and commonwealth games selection

    Not since no, and how long since last one depends what you class as good, 9th in Rio?, last really good result was Leeds over 12 months ago. Hopefully can pull something out in next couple races. Bailey seemed be going ok, around top ten then suddenly disappeared and finished way back. He qualified for Rio even though tearing calf during race, so normally can fight through a lot.
  14. Anyone watch this, Ashleigh and Birtwhistle both claimed silver medals but already had their qualification wrapped up after Gold Coast. This left the spots open to the 2nd place Aus if they were inside the top 10, McShane grabbed 8th securing her selection. The mens race was another story with the next Aus man finishing way back, Hauser finishing in 20th was next best, Royle 25th and others further back. This will leave 2 mens spots still open, and up to selectors for the discretionary selection.
  15. Was thinking the same thing, total bullshit. Most cyclists would be lucky to be sitting on 40kmh unless on a descent, more or less that amount over the speed limit.
