        2nd or 2nd last because I’ve got one hand on the Lantern Rouge already

      • this is a social one @disqus_bDUiSNPQWN:disqus :)

        • jules

          given the opportunity, I wouldn’t hesitate to line-scab you, just for the bragging rights ;)

          • We haven’t officially announced it yet, but the winner is obliged to get a ‘Giro della Donna’ tattoo on his/her back at the finish. Are you committed @brendan_canty:disqus?

            • jules

              also the tattoo will be done by one of Wade’s mates who likes to do the odd piece of ink work and is getting OK at it too

              • I’ll be doing the tattooing, thank you very much!

                • jules

                  he’ll do it while you’re still bent over and catching your breath back, you won’t notice a thing ;)

    • disqus_p1R1Akh8aK

      Who invited this guy @brendan_canty:disqus

  • Pete23

    love to be there but unable to make it. sounds amazing chapeau guys for making this happen

  • roklando

    seriously considering going compact……

    • jules

      you don’t need a compact crankset for this, there’s nothing steep

    The note about Cumberland Junction, just reminded me how incredibly scenic and diverse this ride is. One moment you’re riding native gumtrees, the next it feels like you’re in Portland, US. Then Acheron, with it’s impossibly tall trees, humbling as you soak up the serenity. All bracketed by fun, sweeping descents. I love this loop, reminds me why I love to ride. Enjoy all :)

  • Marty

    You had me with the burritos!!! Drove a little of the start of the course on Tuesday. Beautiful.

  • Tony N

    Can’t wait and it’s on my birthday too!

    I am hoping that there will be no amplified music in the event village. Spoils the Amy Gillett foreshore, spoiled the finish of the Fitz Challenge in 2014, was horrible in Whittlesea at the end of a Degani Kinglake ride a few years ago. We don’t all like the same amplified noise, and in beautiful environments none is good.

    • jules

      yep, agree. don’t need music at all frankly. these events and just cycling are about enjoying the environment, the feeling of tiredness/satisfaction when you finish. no need to be energised by loud music. at least don’t make it ear-splitting.

    Really looking forward to the whole loop. Have done bits and pieces of it at different times, but the whole course sounds awesome.
    See you all there.

  • Deryck Walker

    Just FYI, I know im being a grandpa here.. There is specifically one really tight corner halfway up the reefton climb (10kms in) which is extremely tight, and the local ambos tell me people come off on it all the time (bikes and motorbikes). I know someone who snapped their s-works on the very corner. Might be an idea to have special signage before hand. Its dangerous mainly because it comes immediately in to the first descent of the day after youve been riding uphill for 30kms, so riders let loose down the hill not being aware of the tight bend ahead +there is no specific road signage to indicate how tight the bend is. It isnt hard to hit 65kph on the downhill leading in to the tight corner. Im not saying people dont know how to handle their bikes, but its a case where vicroad signage doesnt adequately point out that a reduction in speed is needed for the corner.

    • Hamish Moffatt

      The descent down to the Lake Mountain Summit Rd junction is more dangerous. It’s quite twisty and I’ve seen a motorcyclist go over the side.

  • Hemi

    Thanks for plenty of notice of the road closure for the locals. 4 days notice of no access to the outside world for 4 hours when I had 30 guests coming up for an 8 yo birthday party in the morning.. I will be making so many complains this will be the last time this is run… Local MP has already had many complaints about the road closure and lack of notice… You are a pack of selfish pricks I have had to move my grandsons party to Melbourne with 4 days notice and will have to leave home by 6am thanks a lot pricks enjoy your ride

    • PAUL R

      thanks for the good wishes Hemi,you have a nice day.

    • DoubleDenim

      Hi, i’m also a local resident affected by the road closures and i think it’s wonderful an event like this has come to Warburton. Thanks for organising the escort services so i can leave the house if need be….but honestly, it’s for only 3 hours from 7am on a Sunday….a great excuse for me to have a relaxing morning and watch the riders. Have a great race and hope to see you all back in Warby soon.
