No doubt. My point was about bike handling and bunch skills though. Things that take years to build up.

Sorry, yeah, i guess that is true, but I don't think drew at 34 is doing cycling for anything other than time trailing, on his blog he says he is scared of what he would do to a bunch...

8 finishers. Looks like you should combined the U23 in order to maintain some respect.

Did you even see the event or at least read the report?
The break away of 8 riders lapped the main peleton........ surely that deserves more than your simple comment about maintaining respect...

By the way, what place did you come in the event? :rolleyes:

Because it's all we do is crit,yes I know a bit about it. As a pro and and a humbled chaser. As I predicted with such a tiny field a group got away and nobody finished. Robbie should do a back bend so he can see h-s hole. Learn the sport,8 finishers means 8 finishers by UCI rules. If you sit up and ride off it doesn't count. A country of 22 million should not have a pro only event because you don't have enough pro riders. Look at your results don't tool me on what went wrong!!! Not enough riders of quality! It was simple from jump street. You made a mockery. If it's less than 150 it can't be done with respect. *8 finishers...zip down and take a look.8 not 9 8.A disgrace.. Let your swimmers race, your dressage riders,cricket bowlers,when it's this small you don't show it! * riders you.....happy Christmas stop dancing with your sister. To sit up means you are weak,anybody could have know with paid pros after they were spanked they would sit up and they did. Most important they didn't finish the laps,soft,really really soft. Greipel ober alles.If you can't beat them ban them! There is probably a video of the p-ssies so don't call me out for calling them soft..8 finishers.wow

Rogers has screwed up big time at the nationals again, Columbia put nobody in the break and then had to chase. Lloyd and Rogers are at 4mins with Bobridge at 3mins. Meyer is in the lead group i think and one of the sulzberger bros.

Travis meyer, damian kemp, russell van hout and some other domestic pro rider. They have a 3 minute lead with 1 minute to go. meyer would have to be the favourite.

Well I meant that they were members of bikepure and that they oth cleaned up at the Nationals :confused:

I feel this is a big wooooooooooooossssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh moment for me.
 
Good on Travis... I remember watching him at the Trust House Classic/Tour of Wellington two years ago as he put 2 1/2 laps on the rest of the field in an awesome solo attack on the last stage criterium. It was pretty clear then that he was headed for bigger things.
 
I love it when a breakaway succeeds. Congratulations to Travis Meyer, but also to the local lad, Damien Turner, for sneaking in for third and the KOM. Turner looked more pumped than anyone at the finish.

I missed the first 6 or 7 laps because I went for a ride south of Bunninyong with a mate. It was toasty out there on the road. I was so hot when I got back to town that I needed two Frosty Fruits and an Icy-Pole to get my temperature back under control. I have no idea how those guys race in that heat. Hats off to all of them.
