After my crash, Stage 3 of the National Capital Tour 2018 was supposed to just be a matter of survival, but that race plan went out the window early.
Alone and bleeding on Mount Majura. The National Capital Tour 2018 once again served up one of my hardest days of bike racing. Here are my reflections.
Imagine turning up to your local athletics meet and sprinting against Usain Bolt. Or, at a park cricket match, batting against Brett Lee. You’d lose every single time, but still, what an experience!
A 70km out-and-back course. Mostly uphill on the way out; mostly downhill on the way back, making it hard for a breakaway to stick. Here’s my analysis of how the 2018 Ride for Robbie Division 3 unfolded.
In 2018, Penrith Cycling Club’s Sydney Road Titles incorporated the Country and Metropolitan Road Championships. An exciting finish to the U23 race capped off a fantastic day’s racing in gale-force winds.
Georgia Whitehouse and Chris Powell took the honours at the 2018 Remembrance Cup, a Marconi Cycling Club event raising money for NSW Police Legacy.
Aggression was the order of the day at the latest scratch race on Parramatta Cycling Club’s Oakville course. Watch my race report and commentary here.
The 2018 edition of Parramatta Cycling Club’s Bent Crank Handicap attracted a large field of over 60 riders. My group rode the Oakville course at a brutal tempo in an attempt to catch the frontrunners and hold off the chasing bunches. Read my report on a tough but enjoyable handicap race!
