  1. I can’t remember anything- the whole day is a complete blank. But I think my days of descending fast are over. The consequences of something going wrong are just too much to risk. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict the winner of cyclist vs car in a head-on collision! if I was a cat I’d be on my ninth life - no more risk taking for me 😬
  2. Hey everyone thanks for your good wishes. I am back at home now and prognosis is 100% recovery in 3 to 4 months. In the meantime I gotta say, I am doing it pretty tough stuck in a halo thoracic brace and on medication. It’s quite a fashion statement...... I can’t play the guitar Dave- left hand is a bit farked up but hoping to do so again in the not too distant future. once again thanks everyone- my goal is olly distance at Shep this season - wish me luck!!
  3. IMOZ2004 - no fricken' wetsuit! IMNZ2006 - no fricken' swim! IMMEL2013 - water Armageddon!
  4. I stood on an urchin on the swim exit there one year - fark it hurt!
  5. If you want to head North to do some races the WSTC races are not far away in Altona. Events are up and running for the 20/21 season. Next race is the December Xmas race - not sure yet if it is members only or open at this stage but you can join their facebook group to get the latest details.

    In the words of the great profit "Robbie Mcewan" - it's not the cyclist that can expend the most watts that wins the races, its the cyclist that can SAVE the most watts! It's actually quite interesting how a triathlete/time trialler/individual trainer has to change their MO to race in a crit because they are so used to putting it out there constantly. When the penny drops you'll be counting the prize money!
  7. There's been a lot of talk about gut health lately and the enteric nervous system (ENS) and its affect on virtually every aspect of our lives.... Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this “brain in your gut” is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way you think. Just wondering if there is anything in all of this that may affect training, racing or other relevant aspects of endurance sport. Has anyone had a step increase (or decrease) in dietary fiber and maybe probiotics in their routines and noted any changes
  8. But Dave, I DO have a thing for axes - just not as neatly as you do.... ..and yes I know they are only squiers, but in my defence the one on the left is a an original 1983 JV 62 Strat replica that is purported to be a pretty decent axe. The others are just shite....
  9. Come on Dave, it only says "Death to all Marxist Democrats. Take no prisoners leave no survivors", I mean, don't you think you are reading far too much into this!
  10. bringing back the Hawaiian shirt?
  11. My reference to gun sales and boogaloos was a tad tongue in cheek - and I actually like guns which, given my middle-left leanings, might make me a bit odd....
  12. Have you seen the 2020 gun sale figures vs the 2019? Watch out for the boogaloo bois!!
  13. Conspiracy theories and stupid people are the new plague. Supported and fueled by people too stupid to know how stupid they are it is the new nutter religion - facts don't matter any more - they believe in the man with the cowboy hat who say "Big pharma is screwing you don't listen to them! Listen to (uneducated and unqualified) me instead!"
  14. Yes, very much so. If you plan to do any cornering always use high end tyres - I can tell you from personal experience that I have lost the tail on corners end a few times by using cheaper tyres, even if from a good manufacturer. it's horses for courses - if you want to commute on Conti Gator Skins then that is a wise choice but don't expect them to hang on anything like GP5000s.
  15. Here's a worked example from the scarey boulevard corner - as you can see the strava numbers back it up - nice cameo from GPLama in there!
