Throwback to the 2012 Olympic Road Race!

I can’t believe this was FIVE YEARS AGO now! It really does seem like yesterday I was cheering the guys on as they hammered their way up Box Hill nine times! I was also totally in awe at the speed at which the peloton flew up the road. The wind rush of a 100+ strong…

Cycling Tips eFondo #3 London Pretzel

It’s still very much mid-winter here in Tasmania, with many a frosty start to the day and snow settling about half way down Mount Wellington. So when the third event in the CyclingTips eFondo series rolled around, I decided to jump on again and ride the virtual sportive bandwagon! This time it was over the…

Now for something completely different! The other day I was going back through some of my old YouTube videos and came across this little throwback. I really need to get my balls out again (lol) and refresh my circus skills! I could do with another BMX too…

Opening 2017 TdF Time Trial

I love a good time trial. I think it’s a great way to open a Grand Tour and put a few time gaps into the top of the field. Sure it can be a little boring to watch but I love the tech and checking out the aero – or not – riding positions of…
