Ironman NZ 11 Sean Foster
CBD Cycles - 16/03/2011
Still cut the Mustard?? Ironman New Zealand 2011 – Sean Foster I had just recently clicked over to the 40-44age group. I felt a very long way from the peak of my racing powers. I hadn’t finished an Ironman in over 2years, and most of the 20strong Melbourne Tri Club team that I travelled over with could only remember a DNF in my last Ironman... read more

Laneys Race Report. IM New Zealan...
CBD Cycles - 15/03/2011
Race Lead Up Two weeks prior to IM NZ, I competed in the Olympic Distance Multi Sport Festival in Geelong. However, going in to the race I knew I was only going to be completing the swim / ride sections of the race – a precautionary measure from my calf injury 10 days prior to the event. It was a weird feeling going in to the race knowing you we... read more

CBD Cycles - 10/03/2011
The Rabobank team started off the Tirreno-Adriatico stage race in Italy with a bang, dominating Wednesday’s Stage 1 Team Time Trial on their Giant Trinity Advanced SL TT bikes.

CBD Cycles - 07/03/2011
2011 AUSTRALIAN MTB CHAMPIONSHIPS On the 25 of Feb the AUS MTB champs were held Eagle Quarry MTB Park in S.A. The course, as one would expect from the name, was quite rocky with a lot of technical single track including rock-garden climbs, boulders to negotiate and lots of rocky downhill’s. Many riders fell victim to the rocky terrain with ... read more

Laney 8th @ Ironman New Zealand
CBD Cycles - 06/03/2011
A brilliant effort by all participants in Ironman New Zealand in very trying conditions. Special mention to Mark Ariens for racing to fifth in his age group after being "beaten up" at Falls Creek. Renee Lane also showed some metal with a solid 8th in the Pro Women. For the number crunches Laneys figures are 53:43 5:24:49 3:36:23 for a tot... read more

CBD Cycles - 02/03/2011
Hey guys, Just a little race report from the 2XU Falls Creek Triathlon. In truly organised fashion I managed to leave the drive up to the Saturday before race day… I think we underestimated the drive- it really is a long way! We arrived at Falls Creek around 4, just enough for check-in, race briefing and to get the gorgeous Giant TRINITY gro... read more

Otway Odyessy
CBD Cycles - 22/02/2011
Had a great OO - came 31st overall in 5h24. The Giant XTC Advanced really held up well in the extremely muddy conditions and lasted through to the end. Pasted plenty of people who’s frames had clogged up with mud so much the wheels couldn’t turn. Super happy with the XTC Advanced. However, the downside of a great race in the mud is that th... read more

CBD Cycles - 18/02/2011
Falls Creek Long course 2011. On the Friday before the race I decided to do the ring around to see who was heading up to Falls Creek and when. The plan was to get a convoy happening and maybe some car pooling. Due to a lack of organisation and stupidity on my behalf everyone I knew had already left and were on their way. This meant a solo trip com... read more
