Summer DISC 1 went well
We had a good turnout for our first Summer DISC session
It's been a pretty busy week at aboc HQ. I haven't had time to write much, but it's been hectic. We've had many people over helping to clear the shed in preparation for the launch of the aboc PowerHaus, I've trained with Brad Robins at Blackburn, and Pat and Dino, and Dino again on Thursday on ergos. We raced on Saturday, trained again on Sunday at DISC, very busy indeed.
I haven't lifted at all for almost two weeks. I feel bad about it, but every time I've tried to squat heavy I've felt weak and unable to get any sets done. So, a bit of time off to recover, and I'll hit it again next week. A big increase in volume of track training has probably contributed to my gym training's flatness. I'm not too worried, the gym work is to go faster on the bike, not to be good in the gym all the time.
Last night was our first Summer DISC session, a healthy turnout of riders, mostly sprinters, made for a busy night - we did standing half laps out of the gate, and then revouts chasing the motorbike, the enduros did a couple of E3 efforts then some motorpaced sprint efforts and revouts. Suffice to say that come time for chicken and chips, everyone was well toasted. Chris Ray's overtaking of the motorbike was a sight during a revout. He's going pretty quick ... And Em and Jamie chasing the bike on J15 gearing at close to 60km/h .. Those kids have some legspeed ..
Speaking of going quick, round 2 of the aSSS is now oversubscribed, we've got 32 pre-entries and a rider on the standby list. Fantastic. Ride is due out this week, so we'll get a flurry of interest from that too I expect.
I've had signups and payments for the Hotham camp trickling in, the lodge is now paid for and we're all looking forward to it in four weeks.
I got the chance to congratulate the V-Train for his regaining of his world masters pursuit world title, he's riding at the sprint series this Sunday (round 2) so we'll see how he goes at that too, there's a bunch of new faces racing with us, it should make for some pretty exciting racing. I can't wait!
