Weird - you are right, there is not much on that section. Hopefully it will all come back to you soon.

And its probably too late for your car....  ;D

Can't remember the crash, it was on Hug, heading towards Trailmix just after the fire road before the boadwalk.  Strava said I was only doing ~18km/h and it isnt technical maybe I slid on the gravel like the other week with Tone, don't know?  Appartantly a nice fellow on a Kona stopped and helped until Chris got back, thanks mate.  Was like waking up from a dream and couldn't remember a thing for the next half hour or so, didn't even know I had been riding with Chris.  Walked back to the top carpark, no KOM there.  So now have 1 black eye, gravel rash all down the left side of my face and neck, ouchy bits on my arms and legs and a really sore back and head.

Car is still parked at Hallam North, hoefully no one has spay painted * and balls on it.
 

That's pretty scarey Will,  we've all ridden around there 100s of times and to knock yourself out is a worry.  Was it over that little log drop?

Hey you got 3 cups and a PR on the ride, nice work! :)

Yeah, it was going well. Not far past the fire road, no drop off.  I need to have another look, but I think either gravel or hit my pedal and didn't see it coming?

Can actually pick out the moment on your strava - HR rockets to 197 just before everything stops for a few minutes. Good to know that you are OK anyway.

Heading out Wednesday night (1st Feb)

Anyone keen on a Wednesday night ride this week? I am pretty flexible with times and gates. Would prefer 6 ish though.

No, apparantly the factory is back from Chinese new year today so they are hoping they will be able to look at it soon.  I would have thouht they'd be sick of looking by now given that it's been cracked since before Christmas.  Mind you it's only two weeks until Valentines day, so given that it's an Italian company I expect that they will need two weeks to prepare for that and another two weeks to celebrate it.  Sooooo, I expect that in approximately 4 weeks time they will advise me that they need to send the frame from its current home in Sydney to somewhere else.  I really should stop being so unreasonable it did only cost $4k.

You can borrow my old $200 pink roadie if you like  ;D (They might laugh at you at crits though, it has no ceramic bearings, carbon wheels, power meter or white bar tape, it's so not pro).
