Tour of Murray stage 5

BY admin

155km’s with several smaller undulations toward the final 50km’s constituted today’s pilgrimage. This the longer stage of the week was probably our greatest hope for a result. All the riders smashed up the road through the first hour. I was as active as I could be through these opening stages, hoping for the big northerly [...] [...]

Tour of Murray River stage 3 and 4

BY admin

An 850 meter rectangular circuit greeted the riders for the start of today’s criterium. If you were not in the front 20 you were forever fighting to get there, a tight circuit with a quality field again made for hard racing. The race was one of waiting for the final, as I managed to collect [...] [...]

Tour of Murray River, Stage 1 and 2.

BY admin

Today’s first stage was an L-shape criterium held along the Murray river. A perfect day brought 80 competitors to the start line ready to smash around the tight 1.3km course. Several breaks moved off the front, with nothing really eventuating. With the final sprint looming, we all attempted to converge so as to present either [...] [...]

Tour of Murray River This being the 2nd NRS tour completed personally this year, we have much work to do results wise. The par course is predominantly flat, however the team has assembled several of its more experienced riders, and given the often windy conditions the race will require both experience and strength.

BY admin

Tim Jenkins on his latest Italian Cycling experience: Trip was awesome. Only 3 or 4000 photos to sort through, plus cycling photo CD from the Hotel Funivia in Bormio.

I arrived at the race and signed up with no issues thankfully. I was starting out again, i knew nobody on the start line except my cousin and Hilton.

Iain Moynihan: Race 4, Landskouter, 117km’s.

BY admin

UP UP UP UP… This is what some 10 year old yelled at me as he made a pumping action with his arm that says “get back onto the bunch!”.  I did get back to the bunch but as soon as the road tilted up after a corner I was gone again.  Fortunately this was [...] [...]

Race 5, Lierde 106km’s

BY admin

Summer racing in Ghent can bring showers, cool weather, basically everything that Perth isn’t in Summer. Yet on this day I was graced with probably the best weather a northern European summer could offer, 25c, little wind, perfect. I rode out to the race solo as both Chris and Iain were taking a rest day. [...] [...]

Iain Moynihan: Race 3 Laarne Kermesse, 115km’s

BY admin

Another outstanding piece from Iain Moynihan on todays epic: Less awful… “Better” is a strong word and I therefore deem my ride today as “less awful”.  I have almost three times the amount of minutes with the peloton as I did last time I wrote for Rad Brad so here it is. Obviously the start [...] [...]
