    I'm back!

    Did you miss me? No? Well get stuffed then!

    New Zealand was very nice, unfortunately I succumbed to some dread lurgy the day I arrived and have recovered in time to go back to work. :(

    New Zealand television sucks big time.

    Anyone heading to Queenstown, check out a restaurant called Les Alpes - decent French food of the hearty variety.

    Oh yeah, and if you decide to fly into Queenstown wear your brown undies - seriously sphincter-testing approach.

    It's great looking out the window on the descent into Queenstown and seeing a dirty great mountain looming over the plane as it corkscrews in! Add the turbulence we had on the approach and it was a little sweat inducing!

    You boys need to take my advise and take up a safe sport, like mountain biking.

    Or nude rally car racing in convertibles.

    ps- Queenstown is a snow yuppie hell-hole. It's like Toorak with views.

    That should be "advice".

    Queenstown is nothing like Toorak - the shopping sucks for a start. Although things are changing ....... they actually have a Louis Vuitton store in the mall now! :eek:

    The robots are watching!

    I can't even nick off for a sneaky pee before the race without being tracked!*

    *if Hitchy (race commissionaire) reads this, it wasn't for a pee, I was dealing drugs in the bushes.

    The buggers in A grade would not let me get away yesterday... I tried a few times, usually works, but no dice. I then returned the favor by marking everything that moved off the front and not pulling a turn... not usually my style, but thats racing. Had one little sucker bounce handlebars off me a few times into a corner... I wasn't going to give him any room - I gave him a bit of a "oi cnut... fair game"..

    Had fun winding it up on the final lap on the front 'Wiggo style and swinging off... I'd be nice to have a hill on the course to snap people off the back.

    Eh, it doesn't matter.
    He was Logan's sidekick.
    Skinny, little bloke

    Just thought I'd chime in and introduce myself. Name is Joey from Los Angeles but saving to get to the Southern Hem to check out Australia and the Gold Coast next year. Has anyone flown their bike and gear from the US?
