No Protour contracts for any of us.

Well, we hammered it out on a less technical, less climbing, slightly shorter course today. We did 100m of climbing on a 15.4km course. They did 200m of climbing on a 15.5km course.

Here are the three slowest times from the ProTour today:

178 Angelo Furlan 22:51
179 Kenny Robert van Hummel 22:56
180 Yauheni Hurovich Francaise des Jeux 23:22

Here are our times today:

1 Trev 23:43
2 Lachlan 23:58
3 Darren Nielson 24:01
4 Lorie Holte 25:02
5 Harley 26:54
6 Amanda Segoin 33:22
7 Jason Buijs 24:09 + 2km
8 Ashley Turgeon 29:31 + 2km

It sure gives you an idea of how fast these guys are. I am sure all three of the last place dudes were told to go hard but not even close to 'all-out' since they are pure domestiques. We went all-out.

Thanks go out to Dennis Bland who volunteered to time us!

To invoke the "faint glimmer of hope" clause, Trev and several others weren't wearing full aero gear or disc/deep rim wheels which could have made up 20-30 seconds in the crosswind (which would have been more on a level course). Now there's just a matter of that extra 100 m elevation...

Trev has been off a bike for a month and he still beat all of you!!

I think he really is a machine
