6am NRR:
Like Tuesday I tried to work both down the highway and back along the beach. There weren't the same attacks on the hills either side of Black Rock, though I had the chance to hit Skinny who'd been left for a long time on the front as we rolled into the bottom of Ricketts Point.

The attacking shenanigans came late in the ride, or really early if you think of them as a lead up to the sprint. Anyway Leigh de Luca smacked it past the Brighton Yacht Club, I'd moments before finished a turn and had to dig deep into my suitcase of courage man purse of I don't care how it looks it's really handy. At some point, through a combination of riders missing wheels, riders blowing up and fairly yellow lights, Skinny and I were clear off the front with Luke doing all the work.

Lights spoilt that party, and holding possition meant that my turn at the front came from the lights half way along Ormond Esplanade round to the Glen Huntly rd at which point my right elbow developed a speed wobble and I peeled off, turned off and watched others get off.
