    Roadster,
    Great to hear you had a good ride. THe weather was perfect. If there was less wind it would've been ideal conditions.

    I don't have a race calendar for next year (and CycleLabs Calendar doesn't work) but last year The 94.2 Traffic Classic and The Pick 'n Pay Hyper To Hyper were in the last half of January.

    Both brilliant races and they promise not to have them on the same weekend this year ::)

    The H2H is especially good and fast :)

    Yup, I've checked the various sites and no results yet. I've got the Star and its got all the finish times, no placings though.
    They've added a minute onto my time though :mad: Oh well I guess it could be the difference between the group start time and me crossing the start.
    I think its time to start a Hyper to Hyper thread. Sean_L can you help us with some tips for the fast one ;)

    My time in The Star says 2:35:02 .... I wonder where they got the extra 2 minutes from?

    Perhaps my cycle computer didn't read too well on that really bumpy section on the way to Diepsloot. It was pretty difficult even keeping my hands on the handlebars at 50km/h down there.

    Acid, there's no trick to doing the H2H. Take abit of a break and then get some long endurance rides in over December. Then some speed and power work in the beginning of Jan and you'll fly in the race. Very important to warm up well before the race so that you get up the top of tough Silver Ball climb (2kms from the start) with your bunch.

    Congrats on your time!
    This was my first 94.7. My time was 3:29, I started in group Z and tried to work my way up the field. I was really happy with my time considering the fact I didn't ride in a bunch at all during the race.
    Thanks for the tips for the hyper to hyper.
    By the way, I live in Melville, Johannesburg, SA, and I'm looking for a training partner.

    Well done on your first race too dave. My previous times for the race were 3:19 in 1999 and 3:12 last year also starting way back and riding on my own. I was just getting back into cycling then from a year lay off but we had to go around a lap of the track which was murderous. I think they dropped that to get more entries this year. I heard rumours about a petition...?

    I stay on the East Rand so not much help I'm afraid.

    How about posting a thread about training partners. I see more and more people signing up and this bb takes off and you're bound to find someone.

    Hi Guys. Heard about this forum and signed up immediately since I'm fed up with all the "Entry for Argus" postings on the other forum :mad:. Why don't the SC guys just move all that crap over to the ACT web site instead ? Anyway, this looks like a well organised forum and I look forward to sharing a lot of info with all you guys soon.

    Also rode the 94.7 with only 5 days (285km) of Base Training, starting 6 Nov 2001. Did a 2h53m10s which was OK in the light of the little training I did for the event.

    Why then so little training before a major event ? I went over to Europe in October to watch the Road Worlds in Lisbon ;D.  I'm creating a web page of the photo's I took at the men's Elite events - will post this as soon as it's complete for those interested in checking them out !!!

    Can you see my name or picture :p or what? I haven't got the paper and doubt I'll get one. Does it give the category position?

    Yip, ouzo, that was me ;)

    Sean, there's a photo on page 19 of the area behind the pits. I can see you standing next to that BMW that was parked next to your marquee. I'm not sure if its me you are chatting to, but you are definitely in the shot ;)

    Cool. I'm going to try and find a paper but since it's raining out all the corner vendors have disappeared.

    I've just got the paper.
    I'm not sure how you can say with absolute certainty that it's me Vo2. Took me about 2 minutes to find what I think may be me. But with my face only 2 to 3 mms high at newspaper resolution, it's very difficult to be sure.
