As is customary (if 2 years can be called a custom) we have a Bumper Bintan Race report edition for you, so I’ll keep it short and let the contributors have their say, just a 4 short messages to add before you go though.
It has been a while but we have a new entry in the Rogues Gallery, and no less than a committee member caught out of club kit on a race weekend. Is there any greater crime I hear you ask. Well I’ll let you be the judge of that.
From Nico we have this…
For those who wonder how champions prepare mentally before a race, here’s a photo of Kari Nore the Terminatore where she is NOT rehearsing the Bintan crit route in deep meditation. Stay calm and pretend you’re a pirate! Free your mind, and your legs will follow! (Personal message from Nico: Thanks for looking after my ankle biter and saving my racing weekend).
And finally, a bunch of ANZA Cycling members lead by Bjorn “Champagne Lifestyle” Engelhardt sponsored four Cambodian racers to come over to Bintan. The boys did a great job in Cat 2 although I heard from another team that some thought them a little unruly 😉 The only sticky moment was when it looked like one of them might make a serious challenge for the green jersey being sought by one of the chaps who helped fund them. Hmmm now there is a dilema.
Good luck to the Taiwan KOM team this weekend and with that… That all folks!
Let’s be careful out there.
