Calm before the storm...

Right - HEAPS has been happening and continues to happen around here. We'll start with a bit of a round-up of what's been going down.

Coburg CC had their last crit for the season at the National Boulevarde and TDR turned up in force for close out a fun summer season. A four man breakaway including Preston's Mick Read slipped away from the B-grade bunch, taking out the win. In C-grade, Greg Hogan got up for the win with Paul, Brad and TDR's very own Mills making up 4 of the top 5 places. Isaac Gibbs won out his second ever crit race and will be one to lookout for next summer!

Duggan doing his best to tuck in...

Kent closing gaps...

Mills presumably opening gaps... 

Paul on a Sunday cruise! 

Many thanks to CCC for holding such hard, fast and safe crit racing all summer!

Duggan headed down to Harrison Street and the Brunswick outdoor velodrome following the crit for the Brunswick's Easter 100. 200 lap points race. Sprints every 10. Whilst a long time in the saddle, particularly when having to repeatedly chase and take laps with Coburg hard-man Glynn Matthey, it was great training.

Duggan's total for the day: 160+km. 100km+ racing.

Whilst track season is finished, BWK continues to race on a Tuesday night throughout the winter. We'll be trying to get along as much as possible to keep the speed in the legs for... ROAD SEASON!

Yep. It's that time again and it starts this weekend with the first Northern Combine race at Pastoria, and the CSV Open at the Mt Baw Baw Classic.

TDR have riders in both events with Duggan, Hogan and Mills at Pastoria, and Kent, D'alfonso and HK's own Soayer, heading out to tackle Mt. Baw Baw. It currently looks like this:

The boys will be hoping some of that snow burns off before Sunday...

We'll be trying to continue our race reporting as best as possible. If you see us at any of the races over the winter, come up and say g'day! The more faces we know, the better we can describe your Cancellara-esque attack in the cross-winds at Newham in D-grade!
