Very few words this week. I’ve been busy riding and watching.
I hope these pictures gives you a taste of the action in Adelaide so far this week.
I’ll be stationed at the top of Willunga Hill again this Saturday under the black market unmbrella, so please stop in for a chat if you can find us.
Each of the bike suppliers at the expo has a test scheme where you can borrow a bike for up to an hour, in fact one of them, Trek, will provide one overnight if you ask nicely.

If you haven’t seen them yet, have a look at the Orica GreenEdge backstage pass youtube clips. Fascinating. This stage 2 shows the instant they heard about the crash.
The road was closed to all traffic whilst the medicos attended the carnage.
Causing absolute mayhem at the top of the corkscrew as cars and bikes were trying to sort out whetehr they turn around and go back down, or take the long ride up and over Marble Hill.
Hope you enjoyed the montage.
Till next week
