Happy where I am at

Posted on January 22, 2009 at 8:03am 0 Comments

Well had my first Crit for the season and although I only lasted 36.16 out of a 40min + 2lap race, I am happy where I am at. For now. I entered into the Elite A Bank Of Queensland Twilight Crit series Race 3. Jokingly some one yelled out for no attacks for the first 10 minutes, I think that got confused with 10 seconds as it was on immediately. With crazy speeds of 69km/h with around 40 in the race, and attack after attack, it was a tough day out. I helped bring back a dangerous attack, but at… Continue

The seaon has now started

Well not quite. It really starts on Tuesday. The Cancer Council Criterium was held in Adelaide, South Australia last night, and as much as many of the US and Euro Pros dont like him, Australia's pocket rocket won a lightening quick(47.417km/h ave sp). Go Robbie McEwen. Now most of the attention leading up to the Tour Down Under, which is yet to officialy start has been on the return of Lance Armstrong, therefore taking some of the pressure off the Australians in the race. It very much expected… Continue

My last day and Eilish has her first day

Posted on January 19, 2009 at 6:40pm 2 Comments

Yesterday as promised was a Daddy Daughter day. It started at about 0630 in morning when I was woken by Rohan watching Cartoon Network on Foxtel. So I got up and got myself some brekkie and then Eilish got up and sorted herself out. At around 0730 we headed of to Chandler and jumped into the training session that was going on with LCCC.



Kevin, another ADCC member had a small track bike setup for his daughter to use but kindly offered Eilish the opportunity to put on some… Continue

Just ignore the water mark on the pics. I am waiting for some prints to come, but at $30 per print(hardcopy or on DVD) it is a bit steep. But have a look anyway.

Mt Nebo or Nudgee Beach?? Climbing or flat??

Posted on January 14, 2009 at 10:42am 4 Comments



Judging by the title you can imagine what I ended up doing cant you. I was meeting up with Rocky, a mate from work, for a training ride this morning. Originally we planned to to do Mt Nebo to Jolly's lookout, but he mentioned to me that he did Mt Coothat yesterday and it nearly destroyed him. So after a shocking sleep and a long night I woke up this morning not so refreshed and not keen for 45min of pain along with the numerous undulations between home and the start. Besides… Continue

Guys I have now got my hands on a Powertap 2.4SL (wired). What I really need now is some copies of some really good training programs that people have used and an idea as to what they were targeting so that I can come up with a workable training plan ofr myself.
Any one got anything or know someone who does that can be passed onto me??
