Jack's Road Season has Started!


Well the MTB scene is going off! Saturday morning rides from Cognition have been exceptionally well supported with nearly 40 riders lately. WOW! This is quite an amazing roll up considering 2 years ago Dad, myself and Jackson Thorn were the only three riders for the first few weeks. Richard and Nicholas Dodds were soon onboard and we've grown from strength to strength ever since. The tracks in Wooroi have been very wet lately which has necessitated some Timbeerwah Look Out/ Cooroy Mountain return rides. Although these rides do not improve your MTB handling skills you can certainly work on your aerobic fitness. (silly single speeders spin session).

For those of you who cross train on road bikes you’ll probably know that the Sunshine Coast Cycling Club road season is underway. Seb Vejby, Rodger Pogson-Manning and I as pictured, all time trialed well enough to make “B” Grade. Rodger saddled up on Greg Long’s new GEARED steel road bike to post a very impressive time trial and placed 7th in his first Crit race at Lake Weyba circuit. Last weekend was the 2nd race of the Road season at North Arm. This was my 2nd hit out in “B” grade. Jimmy Thompson and Sorren Vejby were amongst the competition in the 40km road race. Restricted gears for me, being under15 means a max roll out of 6 metres. Try it one day and you’ll know how I felt when it came down to the final uphill sprint finish. I placed 4th and was very pleased with my performance. Next week is a Junior Carnival at North Lakes, Brisbane, so it’s early nights, lots of pasta and spin training for me this week. Safe cycling!
