6am NRR:
On Sunday I said to myself I wouldn't ride on Tuesday (in case you're not following along, that means today, or yesterday if you're reading this tomorrow). Last night I decided to do it anyway, and just sit in, you know, to see what it felt like.

I'm pretty sure I will have mentioned that sitting in something like Northy makes me cheeky. Today was no exception. I took great delight in pushing mates off wheels and / or leaving them out in the wind.

By the time we got back to Black Rock, I was bored of screwing with mates tactically, and decided to see what I could do physically. I rolled to the front and tried to ride everyone apart up my favourite roller. It wasn't perfect, but it's a starting point for post warny crit training.

I wanted to play in the spring, but lights and legs in the train meant I had to hit the front from the corner before Glen Huntly. I did what I could to push the wind until past the canal, but it was only in the low 50s speed wise.

I was watching a video on theage.com.au, a piece about the state of racism in sport after a year where Adam Goodes made a stand. Anyway, there was a quote I liked, it went something a lot like this.

"The road ahead looks straight and clear and easy, but you travel on it and there are bumps all over the place. These experiences, we hope, count for something. So it does make a difference. If we learn some things, then we can grow from that and make a difference."
