The stage has been set, club president John Moore has challenged vice-president (and house mate) Chris Harmer to a show down at this weekend’s club time trial at Akuna Bay.
Chris will be starting favourite with a course PB of 13:56 verse John’s 15:44 however John has been spotted riding up and down hills all over the northern beaches of late.
How is this expected to go down you ask?
Chris will likely have the speed over the first 3km which is the steeper section of the TT however over the back half as the course starts to level off a little, John fancies himself a chance to make up any lost ground and just maybe take victory.

Hello WTC, I'd like to tell you about the 2014 Tour de Chance – which happens in just 5 weeks!
I’m joining 17 others who will cycle from Manly QLD (near Brisbane) to Manly NSW (home) to raise money for a wonderful Brookvale-based charity called Fighting Chance. Fighting Chance provides innovative programs for young adults with physical disabilities to engage in purposeful and fulfilling education, skill development and work experience activities. The money we will raise through the Tour de Chance 2014 will (amongst other things) double the current number of places available for physically disabled participants. A full summary of how the money we raise will be used is on the TdC webpage.
So on 27th February, we will begin cycling from Manly in Brisbane and finish in Manly. We will cover the 1,100kms over 10 days – finishing on Saturday March 8th. I can’t wait!!!
My personal target is to raise $15,000 for Fighting Chance and for this I need your support. Can I ask you to please dig deep for this worthiest of causes and sponsor me for the ride.
