    Shame about the low numbers... are you in Victoria?

    Are you heading over to Perth for Nationals?

    Yes, this was the Victorian Masters...

    I was initially planning on travelling to Perth for the Nationals. But when my wife asked where I was going riding in 2013, I wasn't going to let the opportunity pass. So decided instead to use 3 weeks of leave riding the big climbs in CA, CO and AZ USA!

    Will do JMR - if interested - my blog linked below in my signature has posts from my 4 weeks in the French Alps 2011 and those from last September when I snuck in 3 days Northern Italy and rode both sides of the Stelvio and then Mortirolo - Gavia loop the next day. Will be doing more of the same this September in the USA.

    Best of luck with your training during the lead up and then Nationals. Which events are you planning on racing?

    Thanks mate... I will have a look!

    I have signed up to do the Kilo, sprints and (just for good measure) Points/Scratch races. Kilo is my main focus... I won the gold medal (MMAS1) at states (QLD) and set a new state record in pretty windy conditions. Also did a PB and fastest qualifier (MMAS1/2 combined) flying 200, but I don't have very much match sprinting experience yet.

    Just checked the results - much better turnout up North.

    Very nice times by the way! Look forward to hearing how things go in Perth.

    Thanks... I am heading in the right direction with my times.

    I have never ridden a board (or 250m) track before, so that will be interesting!

    That's what makes your times even more impressive - outdoors on concrete!

    Definitely make sure you get there early and practice. I've heard the shape of the Speed Dome differs slightly to East Coast velo's like Dunc Gray or our DISC - so you wouldn't even as much benefit as you would think travelling to Sydney say for a training session to ride on wood indoors and work out lines...

    Confirm the tyres you use are suitable to use on wood too. No coloured tyres for one!

    Cheers!

    I have ordered a set of Vittoria Pista Evo CS (22mm) tyres that I will put on my race wheels before I head over. I also get there the day before racing starts and there is a practice session on... I will be watching all the locals to see what lines they take for the 200 and have a few test runs.

    Should be interesting!

    Impreza, I was there... if I recall, you had a pretty nice 200 time. It was a great day of racing.

    Some shots from last Thursday. We had 66 racers over 4 categories. Penrose is stepping its game up. Hopefully in a few years we will have to run racing over two nights.

    Nice!

    It seems like you guys are working hard to nurture the program. Keep up the good work.

    Points Race (photo: Wade Hewitt):

    Team Sprint start (photo: Gus Sarmiento):

    A little argy bargy from the 55+ match sprinters (photo: Julio Hernandez):

    60+ Match Sprint -- guy in pole lane held on for win, but was relegated for coming out of pole lane just prior to this photo (photo: Julio Hernandez):
    70+ podium... I hope I'm still pedaling at that age (photo: Gus Sarmiento):

    This week had a few people from city hall, including the President of the Board of Alderman out to talk about our facilities needs. We also had an amazing turn out of racers and spectators. All photos from Ernesto Pachco



    Strange sync on this photo. I am the rider on the outside, and cannot figure out what my plan is.




    This is right when the combined A/B points race got all strung out.


    Some serious team work going to make sure our team got lots of points in this sprint.
