We're getting to the end of the road season, heck crits are just weeks away and my inbox just chimed with an email from Carl reminding me that his track sprint series kicks off on the 7th of October.

So I've done a grand total of bugger all road racing, in fact if it wasn't for CX I'd have pretty much a clear ledger since summer. I haven't dropped money on the Warny yet, despite it being what has fuelled my training (well that, muffins and flat whites) through this winter. I'm nervous about my form on the flat, and it has, give or take, two hundred and sixty one kilometres of it. Then there's the issue of needing to organise support for it. I already owe Ian and Dave for their help in my previous two attempts. Asking someone to dedicate a day to you so you can race is no small thing.

On the other hand despite for years swearing I wouldn't ever do it, I've gone and entered myself into Tour of Bright (B-Grade). I am brimming with confidence about my ability to go up hills at the moment, I'm 10kg down on last summer..... 90kg of bloke, yeah positively light weight!

D: 14.7km
A: 77m

PMPW: 90kg
