Jordan Kerby - World Champion!

Jordan Kerby has won Gold in the Individual Pursuit at the World Track Championships in Hong Kong! In qualifying Jordan set the 3rd fastest time in history of 4:12:172!!!!

In a drama-filled finale, Kerby’s battle with reigning world champion Filippo Ganna (ITA) was stopped by commissaires after four laps due to a timing malfunction. 

Kerby however was not distracted by the commotion, and in the restarted final, he powered to his maiden world title (4:17.068) by more than four seconds.

Jordan is now back in Brisbane and when interviewed jokingly said “I'll have a good kit to roll to the brew shop in now!”

2013 Century Ride

After the ride - missing a few who had to leave early (missing Daniel Zabek, Andy Patten,Lindsay Green)

The weather was not exactly great but we had about 26 for the full and about 15 I think for the half. It drizzled for a lot of it, but we only had proper rain for the last few kms into Landsborough for a stop at the awesome Buck's Bakery. We travelled a total of 50m before the first flat, once that was fixed I discovered mine was going down too...oops. Included a couple on the way out to start there were a total of 10 flats! One pop rivet, 2 from broken tiles, one pinchflat from a pothole, the rest glass. Thanks to Wayne and Kerry Wilson for the fabulous hospitality afterwards, and to BBQ Bob for the snags. Special mention must go to Lindsay Green who completed the century again this year at 81 years young, and to Brian Ferris for directing this ride every year since Moses was a boy (I think it's well over 30). Thanks for coming everyone!
