6am NRR:
Today was a demonstration of DK, Pauly from Velobourne and the guy who rides a De Rosa's fitness. On the return leg of the ride they sat at the front and pulled track turns that kept the bunch single file almost all the way back.

When we turned at Mordi it was DK and I, but when we were joined by Pauly and De Rosa I took it as an opportunity to sit in, and try and get my heart rate down to threshold levels.

I fluffed the sprint a little, I was on the perfect wheel, but was slightly gapped when the guy two in front hit the wind and hit the gas as we rolled past Glen Huntly. The resulting chase back on took the joy out of my legs and I rolled the line in 2nd. It's not really disappointing, I'm simply riding for saddle time at the moment, getting used to pedalling for 15-20 hours a week.
