Okay, it's not '666' but it seems like it may be my equivalent........... 54.77 has struck again, just when I thought I had retired it to oblivion. For 4 consecutive weeks, I had maxxed out at 54.77 km/hr and was thinking it was a Sigma conspiracy when I then had a breakthrough and hit 56.23.
Well' as Jack Nicholson said in "The Shining", 'He's baaaaaaaaaacccckkk!!"; 54.77 has reared its ugly, digital head again- not once, but twice more in the last week.
I would love to hear from anyone else out there in "Spoke World", "Cycle World", "Pedal World", "Any World" who has a Sigma speedo and has been on the receiving end of (a) digital readout(s) that seems, shall we say, somewhat incredulous.
The big day for cycling is drawing near in Townsville. On Friday night, the local track circuit championships kick off at the local velodrome and then on Saturday we have Cadel Evans, Robbie McEwen and other pros taking part in a crit and then Saturday night is a "black tie" fund raising dinner with the pros so it should be a cracker of a weekend.
A few of the locals had a lucky escape this morning when a car ran a red light across the path of some of our "A" Graders and caused a few of the riders to stack it. Some claret was spilled and there was some bark peeled off some shins and arms but fortunately no serious injuries. Someone managed to grab the rego number of the car and report it to the police so it will be interesting to watch as events unfold.
And congrats to Bluenoser on completing his first cyclocross on the weekend- "Good on ya Mate!!"
