First of all is what looks to be some good training for the series... the inaugural Dirty Gran Fondo.
For those who have enjoyed previous Gravel Grinders, and wanted to get used to riding their cross bikes this is looking like a fun day out of town.
Look out for a bunch of guys in yellow/black or black/white heckling each other and sucking wheels en route while having a great time.
With any luck we won't see much of this
The other important piece of news is that our siblings over in rAdelaide have announced their series dates for this year... speaking from personal experience the crew over there put on a great race and love their cross. Anyone considering a road trip would be encouraged to do so...
Word is they might be sending some 'heavy hitters' over for some of our races so it'd be good to return the favour.
