Metropolitan Championships @ Penrith Lakes @ 6 July - M4 category and Davide  van der  Browne probably had a day he’d prefer to forget. A heavy night at RAW Track the night before weighed on poor Davide on the Saturday morning. Davide subsequently gave his front wheel to BiciSport team mate Graham Cockerton who had punctured and  Cockertone  repaid the kind gesture and rejoined the peloton to contest the sprint finish. A thoroughly nice unselfish act by Davide. Davide rides traditional 42 width  Cinelli Criterium  handelbars (very rounded and in the Roger De Vlaeminck style from the 1970’s) … yes, 42 is  THE  answer
