    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    Saturday, I went all of 400m to heffron, to race in the A grade there! There was a guy from tassie who also registered in A grade, as soon as I found out he was a fairly good rider, I pulled out and just watched the race! Sunday I went all of 400m again and sat at the back of the vets race...

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    And if i happen to race at a different club, I'll go down 2 grades! Who will know? It actually doesn't worry me! I just like winning. If I can't I won't race. It might get up peoples noses. I was not always with this attitude, but issues arising at my last club changed my mind!

    If the feild looks too tough, I won't start! I might get called everything under the sun, butI don't care! The best part, I race club in A-grade, and yet my licence say's E-grade. And thats what I enter opens in! Easy 100 bucks!

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    I agree. But I don't see why I should work for someone else's benefit! As I mentioned before "It's a race, I'm there to win, It's not a popuarity contest. If a rider doesn't like the way ride (i ride safe) then that's his problem. If there is a possibiltiy that I would get dropped, then I...

    I was in the park yesterday afternoon. Training, minding my own business (I was wearing Cipollini's World Champion kit) I didn't use the Rudy Project world champ glasses as I thought might be over the top. AnywayI had 2 guys ride up to me and tell me that I might want to wear something else...

    Whats that sport? Competition!!

    I'd like to try it, but can i use the sword and shield like in the movie Gladiator? I have the Helmet, and it would allow me to use it so my wife would stop telling me it was a waste of money! Don't you hate that when you buy something, the other half wants to know what you will do with it. If...

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    I must also point out, that I make sure that I never race against anyone with a reputation like you mentioned. If there is anyone who would be better than me, well I just won't race. There have been a few races like that this year. And you also mentioned racing else where. That would mean...

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    When I said comfortably, I meant by about 10m. It's not like I had huge gap. But a win is a win. I never do any work in a race. I used to and wouldn't have anything left at the end. But doing bugger all in a race and letting everyone else work is best for me. As Lance say's "It's a race, I'm...

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    Andrew, why shouldn't I chase if I'm not getting anything for sitting back? There have been quite a few instances (before I imployed this new tactic) when I have been chase by team mates. At the end of the race, They just said to me that I was just unlucky! I'm not in the sport to help team...

    Racing and Training, the unwritten rules

    Another example of someone spitting the dummy was in a local race. I was sitting at the back of the bunch, there were about 21 of us. I had been sitting on the back for about 20kms (it was a 60km race). I slowly moved to the front during the next 30kms. When it was my turn at the front I sped...
