I hate these winter races. I’m too far out of condition. Does anyone have some domestiques i can hire? Or amphetamine injectors?
I’ll make you ride faster when I try to cockspank you bitch!!! :twisted:
sorry i missed the finish - my escort had to go to the footy
Fucking hardass ride. Congrats to all finishers.
Thanks Nath. Some good pics there.
Especially the zebra guy. I’m glad we beat the Mapei squad. And it was fun watching them come onto the track and fall straight off the banking
Did I finish too late & miss them? :shock: Great afternoon of FUN. I knew there was a lot of cobbed alleys around Melb but not this many. Great work for finding all these jems. Especially ‘Col de la what the fuck!’ (what was it called again?). That’s a Classic
Yeah, what was their deal?

Even so, it was great to see a mixed crowd having fun. The roadies weren’t afraid to bounce the alu/cf over the pave.
So a HUGE thanks to Andy and Ugly for doing such a great job of organising it.
And in case you don’t already know, the polaroids will be in a glass cabinet in Flinders Lane, between Swanston and Elizabeth - right where Missing Link used to be.
And check out this nutcase!!!
thanks ndf for the photos, it looked like there was a really good turnout
Great pics, thanks!
But now I’m more than a little annoyed that I couldn’t make it…
Great work with the photos Nath! I managed to lug my camera around and not take a single one.
And great work all round with the ride.
Very nice pics Nath.
What a tough ride! Went over my bike this morning and noticed that my one week old tyre is pretty chewed up.
As for the Mapei squad, my “insider” informed me that they were trying to re-create the roobait(sp?) of 199? when three Mapei riders finsihed top three. They even wore the same numbers on the backs of their jerseys. Nice to see that some roadies have a sense of humour.
Thats really getting into it, good on them!
Des… plans for the rims yet?
My headset has been sobbing all night and the front hub has loosened up a bit too - tough ride indeed. And they reckon Paris-Roubaix is hard!
Yup, I’m going to build 'em up with the phils. After alittle discussion with the significant other, I’ve decided that my current velocity wheelset must go to finance part of the cost.
So if anyone is interested, let me know.
standard velocity track wheelset? Silver? Black? How much?
Yup, standard Velocity track wheels. All black. Bought in April last year.
Looking for $200. Radial front, 3x rear. PM me for a more detailed history of these wheels.
However … Melb buyers prefered as I don’t have time to arrange postage.

Great shots TC.
I like the ones with the riders going up to the last checkpoint.
