Whale Vs Duck – 2 more sleeps

Whaleoil vs Mallard

Ok so the Army has spoken. I will ride hirsute.

The course is set. The circuit is 20kms and we ride it three times.

The elevation map is below:

The race begins and ends at Musick Point. Race start is 1:30pm on Sunday 21 August. The weather forecast is for it to be fine and 13 degrees. Not sure on wind conditions yet.

I would like to thank Mt Eden Cycles for the loan of the Specialized bike, their advice and support. I would also like to thank all my loyal readers for their emails of support and encouragement.

A special thanks goes out to Trevor Mallard for challenging me. He has enabled me to get fit, get well, and importantly given me heaps of free publicity.

      perhaps the Army can park around the course and randomly open cars doors.

      Hope you have trained during peak times, Bucks can be VERY busy on a nice Sunday afternoon.

    Best of luck Whale.

    I look forward to seeing the head of the slain Mallard in your trophy cabinet come Sunday night.

    I hope that you have adjudicators along the route Cam afterall you are dealing with a guy that is not afraid to con and dupe the whole country. Give it heaps and “kick arse“.

    • the turn around point of the course is outside Maurice Williamson’s house. I am told several MPs will be in attendance. Then there is the Army.

  • Steve

    Wind conditions? Yeah the wind will come from the left

    • That will probably be more of a splutter and a wheeze

  • Best of luck and I hope you enjoy yourself. I’m not close enough to attend, but I’ll be there in spirit. Go The Whale!

  • Brian Smaller

    Ha ha – you may come second but you can’t lose. In fact, victory is yours. I can’t believe the man who would be king fell for this.
