Nick Gates Foundation Criterium.

The Nick Gates Foundation ran a criterium up here in the 'ville to raise money for up and coming cyclists. All the stars were there but unfortunately Cadel Evans was held up on a flight so he missed the start. Imagine that, airlines fucking it up for cyclists!!

The weather was nice and sunny, but bloody humid and hot. The pros must have really been suffering as Channel 10 forced the organisers to push the race back till 12 noon. Not really a cyclists time of day.

Lee, my team mate from BNG Sports.

Nick Gates broke away to take the victory in the last few laps.

Henk Vogels and Robbie McEwan showing fine sprinting form as usual.

Although Henk looked pretty hot and bothered by the end.
