Bad luck about your club champ efforts cuzzy-vette. Did you have to play in A grade?

Hey Exxy, what gives with the name change?

B grade.

I had a good TT, but buggered the road race up and pulled the pin.

Despite having a chain keeper doodad I dropped the chain at the start of the first climb on lap one, chain suck jammed it between the chainring and chainstay, and by the time I stopped and fixed it the bunch was gooooorrrrrne. I flogged myself for a lap and a half but they just got further away so I DNFed. B grade split into two bunches on about lap three and the gap got wider every lap from there so I never would have stood a chance in the chase.

So what's been happening over here? Seems awfully quiet and what happened to the P&R subforum? (not that I ever looked at it)

Yeah, but when I looked at the list, it was showing zero posts and last post "never"? Did you guys have a database meltdown?

Yeah we were in NE Vic week before last on the GVBR and the place was dry and brown like you'd expect in February not November. I'm not surprised it went up like it did. This summer is going to be pretty ugly for fires, I reckon.

Hey, just had a quick peek at your blog - you're an Aquarius too!

yes we were all discussing this on Sunday. The land is looking very much like late Feb not early dec - htats exactly what we were saying too!!! This has happened in the past and generally its broken in January sometime but thats going back a few years now. Its quite unusual this far south to see such a general lack of moisture in the ground

yep aquarius and proud of it

Sure he does, all you have to do is start a thread with the magic words "crank length" or "Q-factor" and he's on to it like a bloodhound.

Everyone is still bouncing around on BF, and they even make the odd erudite contribution on other threads.

I knew it!! You're Tom Boonen.

I like to run my headphone cord through my top so it doesn't get caught on anything. And good to see you've joined the "white shoes" club.

I was about guess that you were Daniel Wulf, but he's apparently still palying for Swan Districts

I saw the funniest "Guido" I've seen for ages last night walking along the beach.
About 17, slicked back hair, skin tight white v-neck t-shirt, mirrored sunnies, and he was flexing everything he had SO hard that he couldn't breathe .

Hopefully he wasn't quite flexing EVERYTHING!
