Round 1 Victorian Enduro Series - @ Kurrajong, You Yangs

Victorian Enduro Series
Round 1 of the Vic Enduro series. Flat and fast course. 
I knew it was going to be a tough race when I saw the starting line! It is always intimidating starting a race with a rider wearing a rainbow jersey (that he won, not the toolbag type that buys it from a shop)
I felt good for most of the ride until the second hour. I had to get off the bike on my last lap because of cramping (couldn't have been from the wine the night before).
Missed out on doing 1 more lap by seconds... Next time!

We will miss round 2, but look to get more points in round 3.

Josh and Oliver had some spectacular lap times and secured a win (with an impressive goodie bag as a prize) and lead the series. Good luck guys, hope you wrap up this years series in first again!
Thanks Kelly, Kerr and Matt for being the best support crew.

Lysterfield Descent

This is a short movie from the top of the Commonwealth games track at Lysterfield.
Watch all the way until the bridge section at the end, awesome!

Playing a bit of cat and mouse on Beaconsfield Emerald road at the end of a good training ride, with Ray.

Officer, we observed the speed limit at all times.... Honest :)

Over 20 years ago!

The bug first bit back in 1987, when I bought my first road racing bike for R120 from Pick 'n Pay in South Africa.
My dad still paid the GST, as I didn’t factor that into my savings. He must have seen a look of shock and horror when I thought that I would have to continue saving for what would seem like an eternity.
By the 90’s I had found my passion, and so would continue my life behind bars

Dad looking smooth sporting a cellphone and a healthy 'stache.

Racing in the 90's - What helmet?!

Mixing it with the "old "guys

This TT bike was my pride and joy.
