What a great day. I drove down to Wakefield Park today to help commentate the bike race meeting there. I have memories of some bitter winter days at the Goulburn circuit, so I went well prepared. Parka, beanie, scarf and gloves.
And, guess what? I hardly needed them, Sure, it was a bit cold first thing, but by about 11 it was sunny and not a cloud in the sky and it pretty much stayed like that the rest of the day. I couldn’t believe it.
The race itself was a beauty. 40 teams competing in a 4 hour relay endurance race. There were battles everywhere on the circuit all day and the issue was only resolved in the last 15 minutes after a furious scrap between two of the top teams that had lasted all race long.
I LOVE endurance racing.
