Nasty crash for CJ!

Written by Mal Sawford Just days after providing us with her exclusive update on Emma Rickard's day in Yellow, CJ Farquharson was involved in a nasty accident between race motos. Our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery go to CJ. Full details below. A chance accident on Sunday during the final stage

WORLD MASTERS TRACK TITLES

I phoned ACF today to ask whether we require an International License to ride the Worlds in Sydney in October. I had tried to track down the info on Internet but it was confusing. The answer from Margaret at the ACF is that we DO NOT require an International License to compete. Just thought

Emma Rickards wears Yellow!

Written by CJ Farquharson Emma, riding for the Raleigh Lifeforce Pro Cycling Team, claimed the leader's yellow jersey after stage 2 of the prestigious German stage race.

BE FACTUAL NOT EMOTIONAL

On the 30/08/06 at DISC my best standing quarter lap in 18C temp on 92.5 gear and Mavic Disc & 5 Spoke and light tyres I rode 8.50 seconds on 170mm cranks. This was just a couple of days prior to leaving for Manchester. Yesterday in 15C temp on 92.5 gear and heavy training

WEDNESDAY NIGHT TRAINING

Our club training on Wednesday nights is progressing well under one of Australia’s top current day track cyclists, Shane Perkins. Anyone is welcome as long as you are ACF registered and a member of any club not just Carnegie. We have a very good endurance program and sprint program. There is some friendly banter

MORE DRAMA

You probably thought I had gone to ground with the latest Tour revelations, well I have not. Yes it is disappointing when you marvel at a riders performance to then wake up to news he/they have been kicked out of the Tour. You would really think that the penny would drop with these blokes
