Trees close to road!
Le Tour has commenced as one may expect to see images of cyclists buried amongst the plain trees. (No mention of ‘trees close to road’. Clearly there has been no influence from the Victorian Road Authority (VIC ROADS) here!)
Il Giro e Finito
The Giro Tour for 2012 finished on Sunday and Topbike says goodbye to an exceptionally talented group of clients. Not only did they manage around 14000 vertical Metres of climbing in our 10 day tour but we also had nightly opera singing from Tim Keegan with the Milano Grand Finale accompaniment of the Sydney Bath Robe Choir.

Topbike 2011 La Vuelta Espana re-union

Betty Olle (5.5 months) and daddy David Olle at Wildside MTB
Is this her first bike race? Someone asked. I thought about it for a minute….Herald-Sun Tour, St Kilda Crits, Hawthorn Crits, Road Nationals, Geelong Bay Crits, Bendigo MTB race, Beaconsfield MTB race, Tour Down Under….Poor little Betty, talk about living the lives of your parents. Based on the behaviour of most teenagers she will probably hate the sport by her teen years.
