Windy at Blackburn this morning

by Carl Brewer last modified 2008-09-17 22:06

Or why it's not good to compare windy, old concrete velodromes with indoor board tracks!

Dino and I had a sprint session this morning at Blackburn.  We tried a few different lines for flying 200's and had a couple of match sprints against eachother too (1 all in the match sprints).  Blackburn is so much slower than DISC it's just not funny!  We were on little baby gears and pounded by a 15kn+ nor westerly which made the windup a struggle and the final 80m tricky- but with little gears on it the wind wasn't such an issue, it was just spin as fast as you can time!

A good hitout anyway.

My condolances to the family and friends of the woman killed on Swanston St this morning in a collision with a bus.  We don't know how it happened, but it's a terrible thing for her family and friends.  Last year 6 cyclists died on Victorian roads from a total of 334 fatalities, so not many of us die, but some do, and it's tragic when it happens.  Stay alert on the roads, our safety is our responsibility.
