Go Aussie Go...

Well, the 24hr World Champs are about to start and there are plenty of Aussies in Canmore for the event. In the elite male field 6 out of the top 10 seeded riders are Aussie and I wouldn't be surprised if they take home some of the spoils. The course looks tough and hopefully the bad weather holds off. I think number 2 seed, Kelly Magelky will be the non-Aussie rider to watch out for, and with the form Clackers has shown it should be an exciting race. Hopefully the other Aussies will also be in good form and we have a better result than last year.

To keep up to date on the event, there is a live updated blog of the race over here.

As for myself, I will be back at Lysterfield for the Anaconda 7hr race. It should be a good slog in the water drenched trails. Should be even more fun with only a couple of hours sleep after watching Cadel pull on the yellow jersey after tonights time trial.
