woo!hoo! a new toy!

so I've gone the "tablet" route and bought  the Asus eeslider SL101..comes complete with keyboard.  And the reason for this rash purchase, when I've already got a laptop???...weight.  the lap top gets a bit heavy when carting it around on my travels, whereas this baby is a measly 800gms or so.  Case closed.

Today I raced the last of this group of 3 TT races in 3 weeks. All in the country and all pretty flat..Wang, Shepp and finally Benalla.  For the Wangaratta race I had a rubbing front brake, for Shepp my seat had sunk down (I raised it 8 mil) and finally by Benalla I'd sorta got it sorted!..raised the forearm pads and moved them forward.

Anyhow..apart from racing the first 5km with   raging case of indigestion..memo dont drink fruit juice before racing......I had a good race with a time I've not bettered since 2008.  Mind you a favourable cross wind on the long leg helped.....the results are matched to the age standard for TT's and I beat mine by ~11 mins and won $30 for my efforts.  My thanks go to the Hume vets club..it's really very good of them to put on a regular TT race..there were people from ACT, Cobram, Melbourne plus the local club members.

But that block of racing is over and now it's back to base training again.

61 days to go!
