PDCC DogHill Road Race E grade report

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Sometimes breakaways almost work

I like to sit at the back of the group at first and watch what is happening, after about 3km and not many people taking turns up front, I rolled past the group to take my turn on the front, misjudge my speed downhill and rolled past the front. So I slowed down and waited for the group to catch, after a couple of kms of them leaving me out there. I decided to make the group work to catch me and settle down to a fast pace I can sustain for the remaining 27kms of the race, even though I fully expect the group to catch me.

PDCC E Grade Wandi race report

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

I have started road racing, and ended up writing detailed reports, so I might as well post them here, seeing it has been very quiet of late, hopefully should also post so bike pics and build stories too.

Only 5 of us at the start line today, 2 regulars, John who I should of recognised for beating me home in the first two races of the season and a young triathlete coming back from a serious broken leg, with the scars to prove it and racing in her first ever road race.
