6am NRR:
It was probably for the best that I didn't look at the radar this morning, many had and thus didn't turn up, but the small amounts of drizzle we got, and the wet roads weren't enough to take the fun out of life.

Just like yesterday my main "fun" came on the second of the hills, the one between Black Rock and Sandringham. I rolled up the side and into the top 10 as we rode up Rickets, then on the small flat spot between the roundabout and the start of the hill, I moved to the front.

I made a small gesture by easing slightly so as not to burn the guy on the front, Nugga, then ramped up the legs as the road did the same. Once again my aim was to ride clear or tear the bunch apart trying. I tried to moderate the effort ever so slightly to leave a bit more over the top than yesterday, but mostly it was a big ol' pile of pain. It's one of those good pains though. One that you relish in because you know it's making others suffer more than they want. I found out later that it had split the bunch, and that only made it more worth while.
