  The road from Wisemans Ferry to St Albans is the best kept secret in cycling. Very little motor traffic and just out of St Albans is this delightful panorama (picture taken on 10 Sept). This road will feature in a new event on the NSW road racing calendar in mid May 2019 that includes the St Albans “ Hell of the North ” dirt section very much in the classic Paris Roubaix tradition. Planning for this new event is now well underway.

  A speedy recovery to Tony Holland (Harlequin Wheelmen) and the other 4 cyclists needlessly injured last week as they descended down McCarrs Creek Road from the Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park towards Church Point. Its difficult to comprehend the selfish mindset that spawned such an outrageously poor act towards innocent cyclists going about their own business. What drives an idiot to build a makeshift speed bump clearly designed to injure individuals. This isn't the first time cyclists have witnessed poor anti cyclist behaviour along McCarrs Creek Rd - its well known that the "Cyclist Warning" signs are regularly removed or vandalised, tacks and nails regularly litter the McCarrs descent (as late as only last week) and now a highly dangerous speed bump designed to hurt individuals.

Wagga to Albury Road Race @ 29 July - Peter Budd (BiciSport Happy Wheels) started in Group 3 (of 4) in this classic strong man aussie handicap. As Peter reports it was a really tough race with heavy crosswinds the whole event. There was never a place to get a good sit and relax. Group 2 caught Group 3 some 5k before the town of Culcairn, and both Group 2&3 then caught the Group 4 leaders approximately 5k on the other side of Culcairn. Savage crosswinds split the front group again towards Albury and Peter found himself in no man's land. Ben Dyball gave the other Group 1 riders an education in carving through a crosswind on open country roads and easily took the victory.

UCI Masters World Records ratification stalled - At the National Masters Track Championships in February 2017 Lise Benjamin (BiciSport Master) broke the World Record for the Flying 200m time trial. To ratify the world record Lise underwent (and passed) the mandatory ASADA drug test and BiciSport paid the necessary ASADA fees. Things took a turn for the worse when it was discovered some 12 months later that the necessary paperwork was not lodged with the UCI within the 30 day period and the UCI subsequently rejected the application. CyclingNSW is currently seeking reconsideration of the application.
