    Certainly are. With riders like Hilton Clarke, Will Walker, Matthew Lloyd, Karl Menzies etc etc performing well it looks good for continuing Aussie representation in the ProTour inthe coming years.

    They still 'race' those crits at 48kmh though!

    It's like when they say the sixes are 'arranged' or 'organised'. It might be the case in some of the six days, but there are still teams with decent riders losing 60 laps!

    My oath...I've been to a couple.

    Saw Abraham Olano reduce the front group from about 30 to 6 in one lap at the Draai van der Kraai (about the only crit you have to PAY to go to.....******) one year. Pretty incredible.....the commentator was on the bike in front of him, reading the speed off the moto over the PA.

    I won't depress you blokes with what he could do on the cobbles.


    Zanoli was there that year too....crazy cat was riding twin carbon 3-spokes, virtually the whole circuit was cobbled. Met Ullrich in the local gym that doubled as changeroom for the day. Impressive specimen.

    I'm sure if you search on the interweb long enough you will find someone else who enjoys the same "hobbies" as you do. I suspect you might have to call them "Mistress" though

    Sorry for turning TAT towards bikes again, but anyone got any good tips fer TT-ing?
    We've got a club 25km TT on Saturday (undulating... yeah right, it's at Yarra Junction) and I've never done a TT before.
    Since work/kids/catching colds has been high on the agenda lately, I've only been on the road maybe once a week fer the last 6 weeks... but I've spent 1-1.5 hrs a day on the trainer doing mostly aerobic workouts with a spattering of anaerobic intervals.
    The biggest change I've noticed is how hard I have to push to get to 80% MHR compared to 6 weeks ago.
    I managed a ride up the hills this week and noticed that I was climbing the same roads I usually take, about 2kph faster fer the same RPE, and wasn't tiring near the tops.
    The motor's getting better

    So... back to TTs.
    How hard would you go out from the start for 25km?
    Would it be ridden around LTHR? or is it short enough to pace it higher?
    What sort of time would be respectable fer a C grade vet?
    Contrary to popular belief, the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'fact'.

    Hey Exy, tell me some more about that tandem of yours and where would a young chap go to develop a cheaper alternative of his own?

    Sorry. Will try to refrain from such behaviour in future. But sometimes it's just too hard

    Oh. Don't know that road. I presume there will be hills though. BBN club does their TT on Steels Ck Rd which is why I asked. You could then look at thier website for past results.
    Hopefully one of the racers on here will be able to give you the info you need.

    Would it be ridden around LTHR? or is it short enough to pace it higher?
    What sort of time would be respectable fer a C grade vet?

    There no way around it.....this is gunna hurt....Wear your HR monitor & use it for 'pacing' your effort. Have a long warm up, 15 mins E2, then 5 mins just below LT, then 15 mins E2. Try to get to the start line as late as possible after your warmup. Because the TT is 25km, it's to short to be conservative & to long to just go flat out. Soon as you jump, go as hard as you can till you get to LT, keep your cadence up, I'd suggest you try & hold this pace for the 1st 3rd, try & control your breathing, don't 'pant out',then examine how you are feeling....if good, time to push a little harder for the next 3rd. The last 3rd should be getting up toward MHR (how long can you hold 95% +?). This should be the guide as to when you start to 'go'. Leave nothing on the road, absolute max HR to the finish....

    Impossible to judge any sort of time without knowing the course, conditions etc...I'm sure you'll be able to tell us after the weekend!.......You with eastern Vets?....anyway, good luck & let us know how you go

    Cheers Wilchemy, I had a browse through BBN's results anyway

    Thanks a lot Hitchy, exactly the sort of info I was after (actually more than I'd hoped for )
    how long can you hold 95% +?
    Best I've averaged was 92% fer 28 minutes... so 95%+? hmm, maybe 10-15 mins.
    Yep, I'm with Eastern. Race report on Sat
