TKM Noize:
Noize intimidates me. If it was the same riders on Northy, I don't think it'd be an issue. I used to do Wednesday short a bit, it's the same easy down and hard back style, but it didn't scare me anywhere near as much.

On Northy, I'll hang out, move up, rip a turn or two, drift back... I have confidence that I'm in control of my arrival time in St Kilda. On Noize, I camp out behind the engine room, and hope like hell that the 700W effort needed to hold the wheel would come to an end.

The thing that threw this whole mental difference into light was Dave Sewell rocking up  for the first time and throwing out turns from Black Rock, where as I am yet to do anything other than set up the sprint.

Right, time to write things I'm going to regret. Next time I roll Noize, I'm also rolling two turns, and the one that gets us up to speed, and a sprint lead out don't count.

Just so you know...... I'm still enjoying reading these.

I haven't commented for a while because I've been trying to work. Like seriously work. It's on-like-donkey-kong. This means I have less time to piss-fart around on your blog which isn't ideal.

Anyway. I think you're writing is improving. It seems like you are opening up a little more and letting those who are close to you in on your feelings. This is a very good way of connecting with your readers. Another good way of connecting is offering all of those that do read your blogs Gelati! Everyone loves Gelati!
