6am NRR:
I didn't do much today, I was feeling the legs and the pace at times had me (and the rest of the bunch) single file in the gutter. I came through maaaaybe three times, to ensure I kept myself at the pointy end of the bunch and to get some relief from roost when the rain rolled through at Black Rock.

Having sat in, I thought I'd have a little sneaky go at the sprint. Slowing down as we rolled towards the red lights at Glen Huntly Rd I though I might even have a chance. I was positioned reasonably and spotted a wheel that I knew would hit it hard early. Right on cue, Lach attacked from a roll as the lights changed to green, I worked to get his wheel, willing him onward, a few metres more to minimise the work remaining for me.

Just as I was looking to ease back and charge through the gap I'd created, Eddie Wilson hit like the train from Back to the Future 3 when the red log, the one after the orange and the green ones.... I think this analogy might be a bit long, so let's just say he went past quickly. A move that by it's mere existence ruled out any further participation by me, so I sat up and started to think about flat whites and heated cafes.
