“I finished the World Masters Games 70km Road Race that was held at Eastern Creek race course, Sydney. And boy, this was the hardest race I have participated in yet! I guess I was expecting as much, as many of the top 50 year old cyclists in the world were there, but what made it tougher was the wind that got up in the afternoon, just in time for our race.
It seemed that regardless of the direction I was going, there always seemed to be a head wind. Anyway, the winning time for the event was 37.6kph, and I was very pleased to exceed my stated pre race target of 32.0kph, with an average speed of 32.7kph.
Although my glutes ached liked mad afterwards, it was great to meet some of the overseas competitors, such as the 80 year old Polish cyclist who holds numerous world records and has a 55 year old wife – cradle snatcher! No wonder he blows other octogenarians away.”
