Hell Ride:
I was on the front, two up, pushing a tempo but having a quick chat, a few guys rolled over the top hard. I kicked out of the saddle on the next hill... you know, to show them their place. Then Hendo whipped straight through me, doing to me what I was hoping I was doing to everyone else.

That sequence pretty much sums up the ride. Hendo was an animal, he pulled turns, attacked lulls and attacked attacks. I saw the front a few times, but did my best to just get to Frankston alive. Into the hills and I was thoroughly boxed in on Olivers/Hopes, before being thoroughly put into the box on the next few by Hendo, Jez Hunt and Matty Lloyd.

I know it might sound obvious in hindsight... but it turns out the pros can ride!

I was feeling pretty bloody humbled for a while, but a number of guys commented later they were impressed I'd been up (near) the front through to Mt Eliza.
