"Stuart Shaw (Drapac Porche) and Kathy Watt (Kathy Watt Racing Team) have taken out the Open Men's and Women's overall titles at the 2007 Tour de Perth. "

Oh why did I have to be busy that weekend?! :cry: Bet you guys over east didn't know we had our own Tour?!

Hopefully Gary will be able to give us an overview of the participation ride real soon :)

I didn't realise Kathy was still racing.

How many days for the tour? Your comments make it sound like a weekend job.

OK...not the longest of Tours - 2 days last weekend. And the weather was dreadful (for Perth!!). I rode Sunday arvo into nasty winds and I don't think it was above 15 degrees. The wind was 20 knots at the airport and I live on the beach so maybe 30 knots. Not usually as windy in the hills though.

I'm surprised I found anything on Cycling News - there are pics too and I noticed it on the right hand banner...just under the Giro photos...I had to chuckle at the company Perth was keeping :o

I too was surprised to see Kathy's name on there but there wasn't too many girl riders (perhaps I would have had a chance :wink: ).

There was a participation ride as part of this too that Gary signed up for...I wonder if he has recovered, or is still out there :shock:
