I nicked off work today, mostly to spend some time riding on different saddles as the one on my road bike is looking somewhat saggy and sad. Its times like that it's not what you know, it's who. The boys were nice enough to let me set up their fit bike to my size and cycle through (I think I'm going to hell for that pun) a bunch of their saddles.

Handicaps for this weekend's Melbourne to Ballarat came out today, and before I got around to checking them I received this message.

"In an attempt to get a better mark for the M2B i wrote that you and i were similar in ability, even though we haven't ridden together since the 2009 melburn-roobaix. but instead of me being pushed back to your mark, it seems you have been brought up to mine. sorry about that.

oh, and now i've scratched. been crook.

sorry about that too.

So to the man responsible for getting me into the 9 minute bunch, thank you. It's things like this that will make me faster than you. Well they will if I manage to hold onto David Kelly's wheel. He's once again is in my bunch (or am I in his?).
