REMEMBER THE HEAT

Last track season I raced one Saturday afternoon when the temperature got to 40c. Although I was quite fit at the time a number of hard sprint races each one full on for a full lap, knocked me around. Also at that time Brendan Rowbotham commented about the heat racing at Glenvale. Guys Brendan’s

A REAL STAR

SAD PASSING

It was so sad to read Mal’s notice today which came just a short time before a number of riders contacted me. Ivan Collings was a real gent and a very wise person and bike racer. In the recent weeks I along with the other Tuesday night C grade riders had raced with Ike

WHAT WILL SANTA BRING

Hope Santa brings you something really good. Maybe some race clothing or something you need. To those racing up country or in Tassie good luck and stay upright. By the way I will write up the Masters World Scratch races in the next day or so. MERRY CHRISTMAS.

PUBLIC ARE NOT FOOLS

During this years Tour de France we all had to endure very negative press and radio comments about this great race. Some was justified and balanced whilst other fools did their best to paint cyclists as all drug cheats. It was really great to see in the Herald Sun this morning that Herald Sun
