Hey Llama, it's been a while! How are you enjoying your AirTag fame?

Did you watch any of the races?

Melbourne. Sometimes.
AirTag fame... That was interesting. It didn't move the needle at all. Not enough to make it worth my time doing all the TV interviews, etc. Singapore Airlines PR guy called and spun me a load of **** that he wasn't in a position to offer any compensation/discounts/anything.

RE: Nationals. We saw the crit on Friday and the Women's RR on Sunday. I rolled over to the Women's ITT yesterday. The rest I watched on livestream.

Attendance well down. You won't hear that anywhere with the event sponsored largely by tourism bodies.

I was deeply saddened to hear that Tony Reekman was just killed while cycling just south of Rutherglen. He was a lovely fellow who was always willing to come along and take photos for events.

The incident happened on a very quiet road with excellent visibility. He was bloody unlucky given that he did a large percentage of his riding on gravel roads. It certainly has me questioning the dangers of cycling, especially given that I ride very similar types of roads to those that Tony did.
