  1. Kristin is the killer, I am languishing again before my hopeful rise through the ranks.
  2. You might hit the podium, but like Zakarin, you won't quite have the goods for the win. I would be stoked to crack top 5 after an anonymous first 2 weeks
  3. This giro is getting great, getting slayed in the comp by my 14yr old daughter but it is fun that the first thing she checks every morning is steephill instead of Insta. super diesel Doumolin could go all the way I reckon, plenty of climbing to come but he looks capable of time trialling up every one of them. would love to have had Dennis in this race though
  4. An opportunity exists for an all-rounder at Pedals Plus bike shop in Gordon. We are a busy high-end bike shop with a focus on Road and Time Trial bikes and stock Cervelo, Focus, BMC and Norco as our core brands. The key responsibilities will be customer service and bicycle repairs. This is a Full time position but can be managed to a 3 or 4 day-a-week role for the right applicant. Pay is commensurate with experience/productivity with a range of $40-$80k per annum. Desirable Attributes: Experience working in a high-end bicycle retail environment A passio
  5. Just up in Forster for the weekend and looking to see if there is any local bunch ride Saturday or Sunday morning.
  6. I am in. 88.8 this morning. Have barely ridden this year but have run a bit and will get back on the bike going forward. Diet wise I'll mix up a bit of 5:2 and cut out some carbs. I would love to drop 5 quick and another 5 slow
  7. Wait for the new Cervelo P5 X, coming really, really soon (pre Kona). Non UCI, very different
  8. Specialized are pleased to announce that after being the biggest sponsor in the ProTour with three teams and blowing $$ all over the globe telling awesome stories about fairly ordinary bikes for years, we have decided to contract. We have started by announcing that we will not sponsor Astana or Tinkoff for 2017 and we are still debating whether Etixx is worth the money if Panzerwagon Martin leaves because we don't like the toothy Irish Dan Martin as much, and if Boonen is retiring after the classics then there are fewer awesome stories compared with how many we'll write about Sagan. Se
  9. We have now passed the half way mark and things are getting interesting and some teams would be getting pretty thin. Jungels still holds pink and has become the highest scoring rider of the game so far with Dumoulin and Kittel the next highest scorers having left the race. Amadour and Griepel are the next best scorers and with tomorrows flat course likely to bolster Griepels points before he too will leave. In the tipping comp, Anothy's Rolled Oat scored a massive haul on stage 11 to gain 520pts and moved into 2nd place nipping at Pedalio Pussies heels while Gav and Phat Pom lost a li
  10. Well the pouring rain certainly changed the outcome of that TT. A few interesting things happened: Brambilla hung on and showed he is really in good shape and a contender worth considering, particularly if the team really stumps up around him. Amador riding so well creates a nice polemic at Movistar because Valverde generally rides for himself and will probably expect Amadors support even though he is behind his teammate. Kruijswijk finds himself the best of the genuine pre-race favourites, a great position an a rare scenario for Lotto [where top Dutch riders usually under-perform]
  11. A rolling, twisting, 40km long time trial will be a serious day for GC aspirants this will be about bike handling as much as form. I would say the top chances for the stage are Cancellara, Dumoulin or Kung and the most likely Pink jersey by the stages end being Nibali or Kruijswijk unless Dumoulin can really crush [which I fear he cannot]. For the game, the shedding of riders has begun particularly with sprinters Kittel, Viviani & Van Poppel out with no more points to offer. 11 riders have gone home so far. Having genuine GC guys will start to pay dividends from tonight as the
  12. A while, like forever. He was a very good Duathlete and I recall hearing about him arguing to take his hand made 500gm front wheel on the plane instead of checking it as baggage on the way to Worlds in Tassie in 1994.

    Aero roadies

    I have a 2015 S5 and it is a change from the older S5 in geometry (lower head tube), lighter weight and notably smoother. For how I ride it is a petty perfect as an aero race bike and it looks amazeballs. The best aero bike I ever had was a Litespeed C series, a little less stiff compared with the S5 but super smooth and handled perfectly for Sydney's northern options of Bobbo and Akuna bay descents and rough roads.
  14. Wellens is young (25) but won a great stage at Paris Nice earlier this year. He has also won the GC of Eneco Tour in 2014 and 15. Simon Clark is on bodyguard duty for Rigo Uran so will not be allowed freedom unless Uran bombs out.
  15. Crashed 1st week of April - collarbone and 2 snapped ribs Operated 2nd week of April Completed Port Macq IM 3 weeks later [still not the smartest thing I ever did, but shows it is possible].
  16. After the first little dig up a hill and all three of the most expensive riders failed to match the best riders with Nibali, Landa and Valverde losing a few seconds. Fat Pom scored with Bart Wellens upset victory but the current GC will probably remain unchanged until Sundays bumpy ITT which should see current race leader Dumoulin extend his lead and a real test of the condition of the top guns. The best riders to have picked so far are Sprinters Kittlel [499pts], Demare [307pts], Greipel [257pts] and Hofland [248pts] or the guys that TT'd well and rode agressively so far in Dumoulin[4
  17. You'll think the collarbone hurts but the ribs are what take time to heal
  18. Well done - membership in the mail
  19. We have a clearance on a lot of older models at the moment but depending on size I would say these are one of the better deals, really nice frame, full spec and decent wheels. Free freight to East Coast major metro's for any Trannies who mention it. http://www.pedalsplus.com.au/store/index.php?id_product=34&controller=product
  20. After last years failure I am due some tipping success. The course of this years Giro is written in the tea leaves, but my entire strategy is contingent on the script not following the exploits of the favourites. My outside GC trio of Majka, Pozzovivo & Zakarin will have to star in place of the big three of Nibali, Landa & Valverde. This game made it very hard to grab even 2 of the top GC guys within budget and the high number of sprint stages and sheer number of sprinters fighting for second place [after Kittel] made it a bit of a gamble.
  21. Here to keep Doncha down and Fatpom out
  22. Light and Motion do the job superbly. Any of the Urban series have a mount that run both on a road bar or a TT extension. Rechargeable, bright and the newer models [since 2015] are very reliable in the rain. http://www.lightandmotion.com/choose-your-light/urban We [Pedals Plus] stock the 350, 600 and 800 lumen versions - they range from $100-200 We stock other brands too but none that work as well in this scenario.
  23. This is cycling, show me a [competitive] protour team that is beyond reproach - there would not be many or any. Riis is experienced at running very successful cycling teams on reduced budgets. There is a small potential that some sponsors may be sensitive to his association but cycling is big bang-for-buck advertising for medium sized enterprises who are less picky in most cases.
  24. I can't help but thinking he should be honest and just say he is doing for himself. As a father of 5 small children, he is doing them a dis-service. I hope he enjoys them.
