The Starters Are 0n The Blocks

The starters are on the blocks so we need to make sure that each one is identifiable to the trhrongs as we enter the “G” or are filmed overhead (Bathurst style) by the Network Choppers.

Breathless anticipation has overwhelmed the pack as the numbers and nicknames were revealed in Perth this afternoon in Cottelsoe, having safely delivered 26 Honda CT110 Ex Posties to the Perth Airport Male Centre.

If you are curious to know the reasons for the names, you will have to speak the individual riders.

Some may be happy, others not, however if you were not there on the day (or had scarpa’d early) when NickNames were sought, you need to be afraid, be very afraid.

There is one very big apology to make and that is to Andrew Powis, who was wrongly identified as an leaver on bike loading day in Melbourne and anointed with that unfortunate Moniker.  Andrew you correctly guessed your nickname but it was for the wrong reason so p;lease accept this scribe’s most humble apology.
