Mick Rolls through the feed zone in the Peleton

The 2015 Australian Road Nationals | Michael England


Michael England


Local Gladstone Cyclist has unfinished business, a notch missing from his cycling career top tube:

The Australian Road Cycling National Championships.

Mick is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, but put him on a bike in a competitive setting and he is transformed into a ferocious competitor; his nickname Turbo, has something to with his incredible athletic ability; he'll just keep winding it up to decimate the opposition. Amazingly he does this in the friendliest way, and it's almost as though he's done you a favour in winning. 
Sunday, January 11, 2015, he'll line up with the international cycling elite to test his mettle. When I spoke to him about it, he just said, "It's just something that I haven't done." When you take into account he'll be on the start line in Ballarat with the likes of Cadel Evans, Richie Porte (recently touted as the strongest cyclist in the world right now), and Michael Rogers, et al, you get a feeling for how humble Mick is.

After 183.6km and 18 Laps over Bunningyong.... Who knows? He just may surprise everyone.

The Ultimate Riding Machine | Jason English

Reckon you had a big year on the bike?
Think you might be achieving GOM (God of the Mountain) Status on Strava?
Need some inspiration to tell you to try harder, achieve more?
Check these numbers out, and consider that a lot were done off-road!!

HUGE: is an understatement

The roadie forward loop

The lead rider/s in a bunch have a huge responsibility to let others behind them know what is ahead.

Always call and point out road debris!! 

Stay safe out there.

The Freewheelin' Movie

Have you got a spare 15 and a half minutes? Step into the Time Machine and go back to a time to when MTB was young, and bearings and brake pads got old really quickly. Legendary.
