Riding In The Rain



My first race on the National Road Series for the 2007 year was the Canberra Tour. And what an intiation to NRS racing it was. We had the time trial on the Friday afternoon and it was just plain cold.

When we headed back to the motel, it started raining - pouring would probably be more appropriate. When we woke on Saturday guess what, it was still pouring. The photos I've found don't do the conditions justice. It just continued to pour all day Saturday. And we raced two events that day.

We were racing around Stromlo National Park and there are some big climbs and big decents, so Popey, don't be afraid of the damp conditions around River Ranch. As the King would say - Harden Up.
