Race 3 of 29
Under clear skies and with more friendly faces returning our first points score race for Twinnies was held. Why was one prominent real estate agent wearing an old dirty football jumper (looks like it hadn’t seen the sun for a couple of years) instead of a triathlon suit?
It appears all the glass on the course last week resulting in at least 3 punctures has been cleaned up. Dr Bike Junior Paul Woodger will be Dr Bike spoke on the best method and technique for removing and re-fitting both the front and rear wheels, using the hand brakes to ensure the centring of the wheel. Next week will include a demonstration on the skills required to repair a puncture next week- might be a good opportunity for timed competition?? Any takers..
Again thanks to our weekly marshalls, I have one vacancy left on the current roster. That is Club championships, when that is full we will open up nominations for the Pink X’s
A request was made for the early runners to keep to edge of the roadway and allow cyclists particularly the intermediates the safety of the bike lane.

Amaroo/Fraser : Andrew Venables
