Will be interesting to see if McCarthy can get a better win in 2018 - Has enough ability and usually gets a few chances at Bora-Hansgrove.
I hope so, he seems like a nice enough guy. Problem is when he races back here, all the strongest NRS guys and ex Drapac riders like Kerby, Rudolph and Jack Anderson keep attacking until there’s a group without McCarthy. It makes our regular Saturday morning crits very fast.

Problem is that McCarthy has gotten to the point where he can bridge by himself anyway 4 out of 5 times :eek:

Is Hepburn riding in any of the Crits ? Would like Hepburn to ride the TDF in 2018 - He's a reliable rider whose done his apprenticeship at the Giro and of course in now solely focused on the road.

Hepburn usually races at the smaller club crits at Ipswich or Hamilton, while McCarthy does the Balmoral crits which get a bigger field. When Hepburn does turn up at Balmoral too... :eek:
