    While you are continuing your "preparation" during the year, remember two important things that you will need to be ready for when racing crits....1) Surges in pace - when attacks go, and also out of corners - they can sap your energy pretty quick if you're not used to them.....2) Bunch riding skills - hard to gain these apart from riding in a bunch.

    mmm...Sichuan food is good...especially the genuine stuff over in Sichuan province itself. (You just don't ask too many questions about what sort of meat it is )

    Don't drop back further than the 1st 1/3rd of riders.

    It gets molto hard at the back due to the "concertina effect" out of corners and as blokes fatigue, they'll start dropping off the wheel and you'll waste more energy going around them.

    If you work on your cornering, it will help you heaps....you can save a lot of energy by blasting through turns and the freewheeling gives you a bit of time to recover.

    too right!! There's a slight downhill corner at the northern end of Sandown, through which, if there's a strong sou'easter, the speed is pretty hot and I lose about 5 bike lengths! I was so embarrassed one time that I made sure I was at the back.

    do 70kg guys corner faster than 90kg guys?

    Robbie is the best I've ever seen. Some of the last corners he's ridden at the Bay crits defy physics.

    I've seen the Pom Roger Hammond race on a really tight circuit in Traralgon. Very impressive around the corners - took lengths every time he attacked. Mind you, hes a friggin dwarf- low centre of gravity

    Isn't that like being best brazilian leg spin bowler?

    I don't mind the cross but don't know much about it. All my heroes were six-day riders when I was a kid.

    I've got an anicent Winning at home witrh a feature in it about Doyley and Clark.

    He looks brilliant on the fixed wheel....I'd envy the Team Eveready kit and his immaculate bike. I thought the little bunk they get to rest in at a race was the coolest thing ever. Full of exotic gear we never saw here and cycling acoutrements...


    Crikey....I need to get out more.

    Not sure....but there is a picture of Doyley during a warm-up spin with the caption

    "Tony Doyle does his warm-up ride to the tunes of Tracey Chapman"


    Ewwww.....

    I meant to mention that I have a Maastricht six day program from the early 80's autographed by all the riders (Sercu, Pijnen, Thurau etc), plus teams pursuit great Udo Hempel and to top it off Peter Post!!

    Nah. For some reason the 6dayers always look the best on the bike. All smooth, fantastic positions on the bike. Plus in the 80's they nearly all rode with silver rims which looked the business under lights.

    I've seen a video of Wiggins and Doyle winning Bremen. Sht it looked hard, but every rider looked class.

    I reckon you should just get into the racing now, learn the ropes quietly and keep up the secret training. Racing experience is invaluable, and it will improve your fitness faster than training alone will.

    Forecast is 36C for Perth on Xmas day isn't it? It's always bloody hot there on Xmas day.


    Supposed to be 0C here on the 25th. Hopefully it will snow.
    The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.
