Spoilt for choice
Five races in 2 weeks… Murrarie, Crestmead, Lakeside, Murbah, Crestmead… there is such a huge variety of bike racing around SE Qld. And that’s just road… I haven’t even touched on the number of MTB events, Triathlon and Adventure races that start popping up at this time of the year.
They are invaluable in helping improve bike skills and gaining more experience.
Probably the highlights for me during the last 2 weeks were: (1) our team sprinter’s overall 4th place finish in the Crestmead series; and (2) my involvement in a 5 person breakaway at Murarrie! (Geez that hurt!)…
But then I also gained a lot from my DNF at Murbah last weekend too(a flat tyre from a thumbtack of all things!).
