Elite Men's TT...will I get there alive?

   
   
  


I thought I had the perfect plan but the God's are against me,,,perhaps I should have a word with Thor.

I'm staying beach-front this week....on the Great Ocean Road. Being a cancerian I needed some beach and sea to recover from last week, the week before and the months before that. I've not been well, a pesky virus just keeps finding new ways to taunt me, my musculo-skeletal has no system and my brain keeps telling me I need a rest.

Shut the fuck up brain!!

I managed to complete all of my three races in the Australian Masters Championships this year without ending up in an ambulance. I had planned to give you guys a daily report and pictures but a combination of unwell, problems logging on to Podium Cafe and the warmth of the bar I was staying in kinda conspired against that. I popped a few pictures of the Buninyong race up on others posts but the adventure I had that day was a story in itself that took hours to prepare...and only a microsecond to lose when my room internet timed out...I decided to enjoy my holiday instead.

So...it sounds like the perfect plan. Ride along the coast to Geelong, watch a few races, take a few photos of fit dudes in lycra, lunch with friends, ride home, cook food and drink beer then recall my day to you guys while watching the replay of the days proceedings on my DVD recorder that I especially brought for the trip....take a breath.

No god-damn internet connection and the TV won't pick up channel 10 because I'm on the beach!!!!

I think I just saw a dolphin.

So......I'm riding into Geelong today...a nice long ride past Cadel's place. There seems to be sun between the clouds. I'll take my camera just in case because the men's Time Trial is on...I'm not sure how photogenic men on Time Trial bikes whirring past me at varying speeds will be....the chicks were a blurrrrr yesterday :-) Then....once again I will ride home. But tonight instead, I will move to the top of the hill and if I have to I will sit in the PdC Volvo, looking out across Bell's Beach at a perfect corduroy sunset and tell you guys about my day....I bloody well will!33463_433321054004_605724004_5309148_3255082_n_medium

Here's a couple of shots of my yesterday.

Flatty

PS....I rode on the TT course with Spartacus by accident on Tuesday and as he and his motorcyclist rode away from me into the sun between the rain showers...he was arched by a perfect rainbow. The times you wish you had a camera and not a stiffy :-)

So...I know who I think will win.

Watch out for my new little mate C.O.G. He's holding the hopes of the whole Chilean nation on his shoulders.

The Italians are being meticulous and the Aussies aren't even here yet.

And here's Teejay getting advice from someone who knows the course well.
