    Nice one Kevin. Good to see in the SBTC colours! (I'm also a member but have been very slack going to training lately!).

    My club did an intro to crit racing last year...a few sessions run by experienced local racers at Murrarie track. We did things like practice riding very close together, rolling turns, breakaway tactics, closing gaps and surging. Didn't really do anything beyond that - though it was really good for me to get used to the basic skills which made me way more comfortable when I finally did do a race. You can have all the power and strength in the world, but if you can't ride very close together or know when to close gaps, you're not really going to do that well in a bunch....unless, well, perhaps if you just solo straight from the start!!

    That vid don't seem to work here in Oz
  4. Did an F45 session the other day - first one ever. Today I'm literally dying of DOMS in my biceps. Can't extend my arms past 90 degrees! Worst DOMS ever. Probably because I haven't done weights in a long long time.

    You should be fine Cranky. I second what the other guys are saying - a solo TT isn't comparable.
  6. Interesting topic. My spouse and I seem to have come to an unstated agreement - if we're going to "holiday" with me doing "triathlon" - I'm paying for it all. I think this is probably fair enough. Spouse doesn't seem to mind me doing it - though sometimes there is a few heated conversations about me not spending enough time with her...but I guess I just need to be a bit more proactive in planning "us" time

    Well, because crit racing is more than just power and speed - knowing how to ride very close to people and knowing how to communicate in the group are key skills. Throwing people who've never ridden one into C and B grade is potentially pretty dangerous for the newbie and also the bunch. At least in the lower grade, its slightly less insane

    FYI Cranky. I race D grade, and usually the race averages around the 38kph over the 35 mins. Frequently the bunch is over 40kph.
  9. These still for sale willie? I'm after a pair.
  10. I was thinking about this. Cam Wurf has come in and smashed all the bike records in ironman. He's good no doubt, but he wasn't anything spectacular when he was a pro cyclist. I'm just wondering if someone like Rohan Dennis jumped into Ironman - would he be in a good position to smash the bike course records that Wurf has just done...

    I'd be ignoring whatever grade they gave you - if you've never raced before, you should go in the lowest first. Also, I never bothered doing grading, I just showed up and paid my cash and they were more than happy to let me race

    Wurf watch

    That's a strange looking dinger though.
  13. Looking like good progress there. How much you been training? What have you done with your diet?
  14. Seems like Kennaugh has now signed up for a half IM as well...
