January...a lost month

Vague health issues have blighted my January and training went down the tubes.
I'm okay now and yesterday raced the Victorian Master Track Champs...500m TT only.

I did 44.052sec which is somewhat better than at the worlds where I rode 44.716secs and is agonisingly close to the World Record of 43.838secs ie .2 second.

A while back I'd planned to go to the Nats in Sydney but last week I decided not to and am sticking to that plan despite the closeness of that result.   I'm now in road mode.

I'd like to thank CA for creating a rule to allow older age group riders to keep on being competitive.  For the timed events we race to a standard...yesterday to get to gold standard I had to be faster than 47 seconds. 

Shirley Amy and I are singleton racers in WMAS 7 and 8 respectively and yesterday we both earned our gold medals.  Standing on the podium with her is always a priviledge and together we represent 12 rainbow jerseys and 4 current world records!!!

Today's recovery ride was up the 1 in 20.  Yesterday I sold my Mavic Comete and IO wheels so now I'm off for some retail therapy...a compact camera, a torque wrench and torx bolts followed by  a new TT bike.  Woo Hoo!
