6am NRR:
There was a good sized bunch today, and it seemed everyone wanted to be near the front but not on it for the way south. Several times I'd get myself to the front, pull a turn, and as I went back the slower line found myself stuck behind/beside dozens of blokes just blocking up the right of the road, giving me no way to get back out and to the front.

After the turn, with a little more pace some of these problems disappeared. I got some solid turns early then bided my time over Rickett's before hitting the front hard on the next one. Cresting the top it was just Wade, another rider and I, so we swapped off turns until the bunch caught up heading out of Sandringham.

From there my attention turned to the sprint, and when we crested the small rise in the Golden Mile and there were a bunch of Rush riders near the front, it became natural to form a train. My turn was from the turn into Ormond Esplanade up past the lights to just before the rise/corner before Glen Huntly Rd.

Rolling around the corner, after the whole bunch had streamed past me, it was devastating to see it had all been cut short by the Glen Huntly lights. Oh well, the effort was still good for me, even if it didn't result in a "result"
