Race 7 of 28
With perfect racing conditions, not too hot, not too cold, no wind, just right! huge crowds again came to race at Twinnies today, with competitors queuing back to the pool deck. Remember registration closes @0600.DST
At least next week the crowd won’t be so big with the annual jaunt to the Sunny Coast to party mixed with some excercise- a 1500 metre swim in the Noosa Canal, a 40 km ride out into the country side- PS watch out for those big groups going by, don’t get tempted to join the train, you just might find yourself in the penalty box for 2 minutes, then head back to transition to grab your runners for a nice out and back 10km run. Lap up the cheers from the spectators as you go out, high 5 those kids cheering you on, dance to the juke box out near the run turn around and then head for home. Remember that you’re racing the same course on the same day as world champions. Enjoy the moment, and then the party starts, that’s if you haven’t already. Don’t forget to head down to the presentation there is a chance you might score a prize.

Doctor Bike Senior Roger Campbell gave a demo on changing a tyre, checking inside the tyre to make your any foreign objects have been removed, then using a gas canister to inflate the tyre, apparently the trick is to inflate the tyre slowly, not too fast as you may blow everything up. Make sure you get Rodg’s number so you can call him for some tips when you get your next flat.
With everyone looking for a better deal, many are heading to the internet to make their purchases, we have a number of bike shops sponsoring our club each weekly and have been for a number of years. If you need something, head to your local bike shop first, preferably one of our sponsors and talk to them first and seek their professional knowledge, you might be surprised what deals they may offer you.
We found three people side by side heading down a lane of the pool this morning, please pool etiquette means single file, keep to the left of the centre lane line unless overtaking.
