Taming the Beast

Yep it has been an interesting week. Busy at that. Teaching rounds are in full swing and the whistle is in over time. Scary thing is my lack of knowledge of 'mainstream' sports these days, who would have thought for a PE teacher eh? Although got my Outdoor Ed class doing mtbing so it's not all bad really. Had one kid freaked out when i brought in an old wheel (with a cracked rim side wall) and it collapsed in half when learning how to change a flat... It was also time to return the favor this weekend and travel to the Dingo' to stay with the bro before the 150km Shep classic and do some road training. It was not a good day on Sat, in the words of AC on my worn out cross' dvd, "Dude I sucked ass!". The lights went out and there was definitely nobody home...or maybe just the guy attaching bricks to my legs cause thats what they felt liked most of the day. Then i flatted. Ahh well it happens...enjoy the photos y'all. lator cw.


Road Trippin' with my favourite allie...


The Shep Road classic featured two major climbs for the day. I studied them pretty well. Pre race focus at its best.


The Tour de Bendigo featured a stop at a the Green's stompin' ground the velodrome. Here tries to explain the bike never turns right...this gig is more complicated than i thought.


My thoughts exactly...



My "Burg' Dog" and the Green's "White Dog". Sadly the WD is now officially retired, but it's legendary legacy still lives on in the BD, now sporting a newly donated steering wheel, rear treads, dash and gear stick knob. Thanks for the wrenchin' Bryce!


Green's new bird, "Smuggler". Look out Bill Lawry and "Wendy Jnr" this thing is another level...

And for the bro, who chooses salad over veges anyway, as i said might as well drink a glass of water instead, although i'll admit my spud was suss (only works for tour cheaters i guess.)
