summer series

The summer series of cycling events has begun. My nephew, having turned 17, now rides with the elite men. Today he participated in the University of Tasmania Stan Siejka Launceston Cycling Classic, a 45 minute ride around a circuit advertised as the toughest and most technically challenging since the event began. This time the 1.1km circuit also happened to include 'a bit of a hill'. Only about half the riders completed the race. My nephew managed to stay with the pack for 30 minutes, making the most of an opportunity to race with such experienced and professional riders.

(My little point and shoot struggled a bit too)
