Forced Rest

Last Sunday I took the 45min drive north of Brisbane to "The Big Kart Track" near Australia Zoo. Why? because the Sunshine Coast Cycling Club (SCCC) have secured a 12 month deal to use the track for Criterium racing!

The course is awesome. Lots of corners, slightly rise to the finish, plenty of parking & the cafe is open shortly after we get there.
Young (not yet 15yrs) Nick Schultz was the top place getter on the day. He worked hard, continually attacked & took the points & the money. Nice work Nick. Now just get bigger so we can draft of you.
Where does the forced rest come in? well I made a silly mistake & clipped my pedal on a fast, sweeping corner. Next thing I am sliding, sliding... along on my side.

A few injuries, minor repairs needed on my bike & I shreaded my Velo jersy & nix.
I am keen to get down to Nundah for the Hamilton Pine Rivers Wheelers regular Saturday morning criterium racing tomorrow.
Until next time, remember there are only good reasons for being here.
