Why blog when someone else can do it for you? ;)
My posts have been absent of late, partly due to keen blogger Danny Graves of ESi Photography doing some work for me...
check his latest work out at the following links on Peloton Cafe -
More recently though were the Qld State road champs last weekend. These races once again demonstrated the growth in women's cycling in the last 12 months. Back in 2011, I raced this course with 4 other starters. This year, there were 25 women on the start line!
The race was tough and tactical from the start. After one lap there were still many contenders in the field, and the eventual winners needed to put the "hurt on" during the second lap to see who would stay and who would not.
Congratulations to all the ladies who raced with me. It was a good day out, and even better if you happened to come home with a medal!
On Sunday, Koiled-Tineli rider Cat Newell (winner of my grade WMAS2) did the "double" by winning the Elite women's race also. A tremendous result! :)
