what a week it has been for aussie cycling.  with both the giro and the tour of california on at the same time, many teams are spreading it thin.  however, the aussies have been going well in both events.  bling matthews is still leading the giro since a day after the greenedge team won the team time trial.  he was expected to yield the lead as the last stage finished on a hill but he fought hard and finished 6th behind cadel who finished 2nd.  over in california, rohan dennis is giving wiggens a run for his money in both the tt and the climbs.  sitting only 28 sec back he managed to win a hill top finish and come second only to wiggo on the tt.  it looks like the future of aussie cycling is in good hands as the current stars continue to step down.

giro d’Italia club night – another out of lycra event put together by the spr social committee.  check out the previous post and add to the comments if you are going to attend.

women’s skill session – back when leigh o started riding with us she found it quite a daunting experience.  coming down to a saturday morning ride for the first time, with over 100 riders waiting in a carpark, can be nerve wracking as there are so many unknowns.  even after you have been with spr for a while, what skills you need to have to move up the groups may also be unclear.  so leigh has gone out and got her coaching ticket and wants to help the next lot of girls that are coming through the ranks.  this is primarily for those that are in the novice/tranny group and feel a bit out of their depth.  it is also for those women that you know of that may need a little push to come out with the group.  going through the skills course before coming out with the novice group, may be just the transition to group riding that they need.  if you are (or know someone that maybe) interested, please see the previous post.

women’s race training day – hall training is putting on a race training day just for spr women.  if you do race or have been thinking about it, then come along to this free day where you will be shown the basic of road racing.  see the previous post for details.

goldfields cyclassic – the next big race on the calendar is at the start of june and as it is in kalgoorlie, it will take a bit of organising.  more info is on the previous post and if you are interested, please put your name in the comments section.
