I've only raced Waratah Vets tennis centre. I know a LACC guy, is there any questions you want me to put his way?

You can buy a license for the day, could be an opportunity for a beginner

Clashes with the Unanderra Track Open down the 'Gong way.

And those '1 day licences' are not cheap.......

mmmm...won't mention how bad that was :shock: ,I jumped in C and we cruised...a few breaks but nothing major,there was a fair bit of wind.I felt as flat as a pancack :roll: ,not sure why,might have been a bit hot for me.Also might have something to do with smashing my self to get there on time to find that that grades before mine hadn't even started yet!.Need to reed up on cycle routes...usually i would go crows nest-river road-down to victoria road and then cycleroute to homebush.But today I thought I would go the harbour bridge.I was fine until I hit the fish markets and couldn't work out how to get onto Anzac bridge?.I only spent a minute looking for signs and then hit Parramatta rd the whole way out.Must have put a few km's into the cars going west as well but still spent half the time on the footpath (my poor real wheel is about the blow a rim).
Anyway the question is now whether after todays poor performance should i race tommorow or train....or train and race...my rule is 2nd days intensity is always the best!.

The route out from the Harbor bridge to Olympic park is reasonably good once you know it.

Did they race on the tennis centre course? Any idea what average speed was for C ?

If I remember correctly, last time I raced Waratah B at tennis centre, average speed was 38kph, but there was no wind, nice weather and no breakaways.

From your feedback, I guessing that LACC C = Waratah B

When I last went to the local club and asked for a day licence, they said it would cost $30 :shock:

Yeah,when I do an open club event I drop back a grade...but you never know.Hefron on Sats C grade would be a burglar.Tuesday night C grade would be murder.I didn't win so I will stay in that grade but will smash em next time :wink: .You still planning on the 11th at HB?.

I guess I should race on the 11th. My race moratorium finishes on the 7th. Kind of use to not racing.

Also there's the NSW vet track racing on around the 14th? at Canterbury/Tempe velodrome.
