Eildon Road Race

Including two pondage loops and two loops of skyline road, the 133km Eildon Road Race turned out to be a fantastic race that was decided on the Skyline Road Climb (6.5km @ 5% average gradient). It was great to get another win, and take the overall VRS jersey heading into the final race for the year – the Tour of Bright.

Adelaide Tour 2015 NRS

I think it’s right to say that the Adelaide Tour did not go well for Budget Forklifts. With a 4 stage tour being so short with nothing over 100km and usually less than two hours of racing as soon as […]

Tour of Utah Highlights

When I kitted up in Drapac colours for stage 1 of Tour of Utah I really didn’t know what to expect. There was no way I was about to start ‘America’s Toughest Stage Race’ next to world professionals of cycling. I couldn’t believe it. I was standing next to Cadel Evans about to race against him.
