I have entered a team sprint team in the Masters over 135 category. Only problem is that on one page they say the combined age is 135, and on the next page, they say it's 150. Have asked for clarification, but this may determine my team, which as of yesterday was me, Karzie and Lindsay. I may have to drop myself if it's 150. Anyone know how to get hold of Des Kidd to take my place (and guarantee DHBC a medal!!!)?

I've enter the individual pursuit & put Jo and I down for the team sprint. I think Jo might be doing the points race too.

So glad there are some other DHBCers with pursuititis! I have next to no idea what I'm doing.

Training starts today.

I got clarification from CNSW today about the team sprint. Combined team age must not be below 135 years. This is good news, since it means I get to compete. I saw Camilla's team on the start list for the women's team sprint too. Agree I need to do some training. That will consist of riding to work on fixed gear twice a week.

I just emailed CNSW to tell them I'm NOT attending the NSW Masters Individual Pursuit Championships tonight. I'm in bed with the flu.

NSW Masters Scratch Race Championships on Sat looking doubtful. Hopefully I'm well enough for the points race on Sunday

Jo raced the 500m ITT last night (Thur 10th) and got 2nd in the combined WMAS3/4 division - I'm so proud - she's my Silver medallist!

Jo out of the gates

Go Jo! Fantastic work! Silver! Yaaaaaay!

Especailly when gold's not really an option, racing against Michelle Crawford.

Love the pics stuart. Hope I pull off such a good start in an hour or two.

Top work Jo! You look so fierce - no wonder you got a result is all I can say.

Great shots Stuart, nicely done.

Well done Jo. Nice equipment there too!

Since I'm racing in the team sprint on Sunday, can someone clarify what the situation is with handlers? Does Cycling NSW supply them, or do you supply your own, or do you have the option for this one?

Thanks...

I had 3 goals doing the IP today: not to fall over coming out of the gate; to go under 3 minutes; and not to bring shame down upon my family. I achieved the first 2 (2:59! Yeah!) and hope Arthur will be able to tell me if I achieved the 3rd when next I see him. I was also pretty confidant I'd come last in my category (WMSA1-3 combined) and did that too, but others in the group were only 2 and 4 seconds faster so I was pretty happy. And there is plenty I can tweak for next time - sufficient tyre pressure, chain not so tight, bigger gear (yes I wimped out and went for the 90), train some more, get some disc wheels and funky handlebars, don't go to the pub the night before. Lots of room for improvement. All in all I had a great time, and it's excellent to have something to build from. The ladies I rode against are all fabulous too. Warm and encouraging. A great experience. I'll be there in the TT with you next year Jo!

And I do like the IP - it gives you time to talk to yourself and gauge what's going on. After getting out of the gate ok I got a bit excited and wobbly, so was saying "settle, settle..." by lap 2 it was "perhaps don't settle quite so much", lap 3 was "so this is going ok", lap 4 "perhaps I should have gone for the 92", lap 5 "half way there ... and you always get better as you go along", lap 5 "did I turn the stove off this morning after making coffee? What are the pretty bits of blue foam for?", lap 6 "la la la", lap 7 "legs hurting now", lap 8 "LAST ONE! You're going to make it! GO GO GO!"

I saw Mark L do his stint just before I left. He went out hard and was looking great, about to overtake his race partner on lap 5 (?). I went up to yell encouragement at him but noticed he had white lips, so thought it best to keep quiet and let him ride his own race. His pace slacked off a little and he never caught the guy, but still put in a very respectable time. Ian, Joshua and Matt were in warm-up phase, but I decided to beat the traffic home and left them to it.

Well done Camilla, Joanne.

Got a bit of a report from Mark;
Mark did 1.15 for the first 1,000 but faded and ended up with 2.42 for the 2,000.
Ian did 4.00 for the 3,000. a PB
Joshua did 3.38 for the 3,000 matching the team time last week
Matt missed out on 4th, where he would of gone for the bronze shootout by a fraction of a second

Well I'm feeling pretty disappointed, I'm missing the scratch race tonight and even if I'm able to race the points race tomorrow, my chances of taking a medal are gone. I felt I had a chance of taking a medal in the points race, but that's life.

If y'all could let me know results, I'll pull together a press release and get us some cred in the local papers.
PM me with results, quotes or whatever you want off your chest.

Just a couple of little voms, nothing like what I remember from my mid- to late-teens when I suffered a mysterious series of stomach upsets on Friday and Saturday nights. It was my first points race but it won't be my last! I had a great time although I was grovelling by the time the last two sprints came around. I got all my points by leading sprints out, I just didn't have the oomph to get over the top of people otherwise.
