For the third year in a row I headed off to Mt Buninyong yesterday to watch the Road National Champs. It was an extraordinary day, and perhaps the most fun I’ve ever had at the event. The fact that only 15 of 127 riders finished the men’s race is a testament to what a grueling day in the heat the riders had to endure. Jack Bobridge’s huge breakaway was all the more an achievement in these conditions. I’ve pulled up with sunburn and sore calves just from walking up and down the KOM, so I can’t imagine what surviving the 184km race would feel like, let alone winning after 90km solo!
