With the push to be 100% for this TT it was a relief to have it over and done… and won! The earlier riders in the day were scoring PBs on the course with a lovely tail wind pushing them up the hill, later in the day we weren’t so lucky with the wind almost at a stand still for us. Huge kudos to Man Mountain John Cain (Giant Celtic, MMAS5) setting time of the day and trimming a few seconds from my course record from last year.

In MMAS2 there were a few unknowns and a few knowns. Allan Sieper was a DNS. Peter Milostic was there to defend his MMAS2 title from last year. I had a pretty average ride to be honest. I knew I was gaining on Milostic at the turn around, but not by the same amount I put into him at the NSW State Champs a few weeks ago. The push to the line was over before I knew it. I didn’t quite make it to Milostic’s wheel, but wasn’t far off.

5th Australian Masters TT title in a row. Next year it is back in Ballarat and I hope the lead up won’t involve broken bikes and broken bones. Next up, a few days off then back into training, racing, starving, and aiming the Shiv at the Tour of Bright TT. It is going to be FAST!
