    Been looking at some images of Ferdy Kubler who died earlier today, aged 97. Some legs on him!

    I suppose that's the season almost underway, Rohan Dennis wins the Aussie ITT title and Jack Bauer wins the NZ ITT title

    And more Aussie Nationals, Miles Scotson* wins the men's RR title and Katrin Garfoot wins women's RR to add to her ITT title earlier in the week

    * a good week for the Scotson family with his younger brother Callum winning the U23 ITT title for the 2nd time
