Hey...I'm a simple girl...lipgloss and sometimes mascara on most days. Paris however, tends to pile the makeup on...a little too much if you ask me.

nah, it's not that; i'd just like to see someone rock up to the Sunday criteriums wearing a rainbow jersey. We can set it up: I'll sit in the pack at the start line with a tape recorder, then you slowly roll down the straight and up to the 'pay desk'. It'll be grouse!

Actually, I see plenty of people on Beach Rd wearing the Aus team jersey, so I guess wearing a rainbow isn't that much of a leap

did you see PBK have them cheap....i mean i draw the line at wearing the aussie team kit cos that is being a ****** as people may be tricked into thinking i can actually ride....wearing the QS WC jersey i thought was ok as no one would seriously think I was tom boonen out for a spin down to sorrento....

as for the sandown setup....id do it....but only when i can **** all over everyone while wearing it ill get back to you in say 3 years?

I'm not sure anyone spanks everyone at the Carnegie criteriums. They even had some internationals there racing A-grade during the Comm Games, and they didn't exactly blow everyone away. It's pretty tough

"Word" has it that Sk Kilda and Hawthorn is a bit easier

Week in-week out, Glenvale gets the best crit fields in Australia. Has for the 15 years.

Couldn't tell ya...I haven't turned a pedal in anger in 8 years!!

Although I do see some names on cn.com that really shouldn't be finishing at the pointy end of a supposedely "a-grade" criterium.

I'd like to see some average speeds posted in the results.

Just a few big names missing I reckon Nev, thats all. Agree with Ed. There are a few names that are placing who probably wouldn't have five or ten years ago.

St Kilda is definitely "lesser quality" than Glenvale - not to take anything away fromt he guys/gals racing there - hell, I got my ass kicked in D grade . But from an observers point of view it is noticable across all grades. Also smaller amount of participants & less "cred" I suppose.

Hawthorn is a bit different becasue it has that lovely little hill on the circuit that a lot of crit monkeys have no interest in hurting themsleves on each lap. Good, tuff circuit though - made for dudes who can sprint uphill to the finish line.
