I went up Sunday morning. Got up there about 8am.
Didnt pass anyone on my way up. Does that mean I was 1st up on Sunday? :wink:
Only time I will ever be 1st up :!:
I did pass 4 riders on my way down. Took me 20min to thaw out.

YES for that. Not looking too promising lately.
Might be following a snow plough up!!


aiming for 1:20 - 1:17hrs

Go for it. I think on Sunday I went a bit hard up to The Springs. I should hold back a bit, save some for last section.
Rode my first TT last year. Did 1:31
If I could get it 1:25 great, 1:20 bonus

Barry, I'll be riding from my place so can't give you a lift sorry. Just ride up Strickland in bottom gear, will warm your legs up without wearing you out :) Give yourself 1/2 hour recovery and you'll be grand.

New Norfolk via Collinsvale would be the go I reckon.

Cant find any report in Mercury today. Are interim results to be found somewhere?

I got my results after the presentations from their computer... Seems they are a bit tardy getting the full results online. A bit disappointing in this age of instant gratification!

Interesting entry numbers. Looks like 132 this year. 2009 appears to have been a peak, with 149 entries.
