    You could put it down to the heat but the said rider has been rubbed out of
    a couple of criteriums for drafting higher grades , there is always a good
    argument with the officials afterwards too. Australian rules are different
    to ze' rulez on ze' Continent :)

    I'll look forward to riding down to the Hopeland course and cheering on all
    the AB'rs + Nicky Armstrong who I've ridden with occasionally on Sat.
    mornings out of BikeForce Freo. She's amazing on that pennyfarthing. I
    can't imagine she'll be riding it on Sunday!?

    Just to let ppl know
    Byron broke the hour for the 40kay state champs
    Bloody top work
    So did I in countries that accept a seventy minute hour! Which judging
    by the freeway rail project, I am in.
    Average speed 34 something, and pain, so much pain.
    Where does DeF get the amnesia pills for the average speed?
    I did beat him home on the return leg, just he had six minutes up his
    sleeve into the southerly wind down to Lakes Road.
    All this racing is making me tired.
