6am NRR:
Last Sunday, as I rolled out from SKCC crits, Rick Horvat said he wanted to do Northy on Thursday (today) and get a coffee/breakfast after. At the time I knew it'd be tough to back up the planned HCC crit on Wednesday night, but I like the bloke so agreed in what is the trademark of past me.

So yeah, last night I got home after drilling myself into a hole on Yarra St and set my alarm for 5:10. I rolled out from home at 5:45, and from the corner of North Rd and Napean Hwy at at 6:00. It wasn't until we got back to St Kilda that I got a chance to chat to Rick. He was feeling peppy and rolled turns all day, I was in mental and physical fog and just followed wheels, thanking my lucky stars that it wasn't too fast.

All said and done though, it was good to get out, the weather held out for us, the bit of water on the road was only enough to add a slight layer of filth to my shiny bike. DK met us at Luna Park and the three of us rolled back up to Chapel st to smash a couple of coffees and some grub.
