I know he is not but he can do ok, in good form.

Profile - Don't be mislead by it. The riders only do the long circuit 3 times this year.




The website hasn't really explained it very well.

Do people want a race thread for the Men's Road Race or just keep live and pre-race commentary in this thread?

Bradley Linfield is an absolute gun in the making.

That is all.

I've just moved to Perth a couple of months ago and he's already getting local legend status around here. He looks the goods, nice kid too.

I would use this thread.
Course looks good, plenty of opportunities if anyone who wants to race the damn thing.

Hoping Matthews can hang around and take the select group sprint.

Why would a time trialist skip the TT and time trial his way to a criterium win? Who cares about the crit title.

It's 3 times around the long loop, then 11 times around the shorter loop. 14 times up Mt Bunninyong, 195.8 K. Has usually been 16 times around the short loop, 16 times up the climb, 163.2K. So 2 fewer times the climb, but 30 + K longer race. Don't see how it will change much, still favours hard man.

I don't mind the course for the road race but I hope they mix it up in the future. I don't see the point in having the titles in the same place every year. Towns and cities should bid for it like other sporting events. It's getting a bit monotonous. Ballarat is a good place for cycling but more variety needed.
