 St Kilda East - Mt Pleasant - Stony Creek - Kruses - Pidgeon Bank - Dawson - Reserve - Clintons - Flat Rock - St Kilda East:
I was nervous about how I'd manage today, my riding partners were DK and Ash Hutchinson. DK is DK, and Ash earned world champ rainbow stripes in 04 on the boards. Yeah, it's not often I have the smallest legs on the bike.

I wasnt feeling the groove early, with decent cadence eluding me well up until Mt Pleasant when DK started to turn the screws and drive the pace a little. Around halfway through I stopped trying to sit beside him, and drifted back, figuring it'd be best to hold some legs for later.

Ash cracked shortly after, and from that point on the ride was at his hamstrung speed. I obviously still made him do a decent loop, because I'm a jerk like that, but I never felt super stressed, and I think that's a bad thing. I was there to train after all.
