I literally didn't have enough warning to catch him on film, got everyone else important, however. I did catch him on the podium talking and spraying champaign though.

The admin for Jayco Herald Sun Tour emailed that they liked it.

Must be a really technical course. Only saw one guy on a TT bike.

...or people can't afford to ship their TT bikes?

and Braden, with all respect... what do you expect the "admin" to say? "Your video is rubbish" and suffer the bad publicity that would come from a comment like that?

If you are going to set your video to music then edit to it.

"You're video is bad publicity for (our event) please kindly remove it"
Is what I'd expect them to say...Or even just a standard "You cant' use our name, trademark, e.t.c. blah blah sue you and repo your roadie".


And It was an extremely technical course, making some of the turns quickly on a TT bike would prove challenging (for the less experienced riders), and 10km time trial, the aero difference between drop bars/bull horns and road frame/tt frame really wouldn't compensate on the flats the reduced turnability for less experienced riders. Most of the teams there were Australian and based not too far away. Shipping wouldn't have been a problem at all, maybe for Garmin, but they had about 15 bikes there for far less riders. I don't think they were concerned.

The Herald Sun Tour doesn't allow teams to use TT bikes to minimise costs for teams and riders coming from further afield... Nothing to do with the course.
