  1. The Stranger on Netflix. Pommy mystery type thing, 8 episode in the series, we've got 2 to go and I still have no idea how it's going to end up. Two thumbs up 👍👍
  2. Spraying dry teflon lube on the pedals (and the cleats) after you've cleaned them also helps when clipping in and out. EDIT (just found this link - https://www.bikebug.com/finish-line-pedal-cleat-dry-film-lubricant-p-46121.html) I've got mine cranked up nice and hard. Pulling a foot out during a sprint isn't fun at all. New pedals on the hardest setting + new cleats = a super satisfying snap when clicking in and out.
  3. and from their website.... "Five reasons to enter Challenge Shepparton: A unique flat, fast course, ideal for beginners or those chasing a PB! The fresh water lake swim in Victoria Park Lake is regarded as one of the best open water courses in Australia Our community comes out in force to support the athletes Shepparton is a picturesque and easy two hour freeway drive from Melbourne or under two hours from Melbourne Airport Free beer at the finish line..." You had me at 🍺🍺🍺
  4. Back up to 72.6kg Boozy grand final didn't help.
  5. and rocking a Kask over the team issue helmet. Friends don't let friends wear Rudy Project...
  6. 72.0. Only a tiny reduction, which I put down to a small increase in my exercise, off-set by a couple of days of eating/drinking too much. Time to knuckle down this week
  7. Penicillin helps with that..... or so I've heard
  8. Me too! Just weighed in at 72.2kg
  9. In great condition looked after meticulously. This thing has been brilliant to ride. Light, responsive and comfy too. Full carbon with Dura Ace Di2 at a bargain price - $3000 In this small size it’s really, really light. Like sub 6.7kg light....

  10. If you do plan on hanging around in Briancon for a few extra days you might want to sort out your accom asap. Next years Etape du Tour is on 16th - 15,000 riders so accom is going to be snapped up (registration is going about to open and it'll sell out fast)
  11. Can't wait - heading back over next year, staying in Briancon for 12 days or so. Happy days!!
  12. On the other hand taking strike action at a quiet time when it would have little/less impact probably wouldn't be particularly effective if you were trying to negotiate a new agreement
  13. Ripper of a day (freezing all the way to Marysville though!). The 20km up Reefton seemed to go on and on and on.... Archeron Way was stunning.
  14. Nice work Parky! I love a good time-lapse. Have been mucking around with doing some while riding with a bike-mounted camera.

    Roxii I think that's the not so good one. It will need to say Ant+2 on it (from memory). I had the one you've got but no joy - ended up buying the right one (from bikebug) and it works a treat. Looks like this
  16. I really enjoy Stuff You Should Know - a huge variety of topics and they have been going for years.
  17. www.cyclinganalytics.com - simple to use, easy to understand and plenty more there to dig around if you want to nerd out on.
  18. Cycling cap - pulled down nice and low (but make sure it doesn't block your vision obviously...) Works a treat for me
  19. Not sure it's an error. It's a netflix production and season 1 and 2 we're released in their entirety too.
  20. Nice race report. Stage racing is great fun - you get to pretend to be PRO! Oh and you need to learn to sprint in your drops.....
  21. If he was given the magic wand and could use it to make any changes to the sport (eg race formats/distances, teams etc) what would he change?
  22. I agree. There has been an MOU in place between the two agencies relating to the disclosure of info (last version was updated in 2006). The officer making the detection doesn't make the disclosure - however there are still other ways this info to be shared between agencies
  23. Except for this bit.... "There's no way Australian customs go contacting sporting drugs administrations when age groupers have packages arrive". Customs doesn't have a list of ASADA's registered and domestic testing pool athletes and therefore 'share' information relating to PIED seizures. Or maybe they don't.... EDIT for terrible spellin' n stuf
