Herald Sun Tour Stage 1

Today I took the opportunity to ride up the Warby Trail to see the Herald Sun Tour at the Mt Little Joe KOM point just outside Warburton. I met my mate Dan and a few of his GhostRiders there as we waited for the tour to come through. 

Not quite the Tour de France but it was a great ride and a fun day out. There were some big names riding and Sky went 1-2 on the stage with Kennaugh and Froome beating the field Healesville.

 Here's Dan (2nd from left..) with a few of his regular riding buddies from the Ghostriders.
 KOM winner Giacomo Berlato crosses the line. One of Dan's mates waves the flag to show the riders exactly where the line is (I think...)
Thats two-time TdF winner Chris Froome just on the line following his Sky teammates with British Road champ Peter Kennaugh just behind him in the GB national colours.
After training it to Lilydale then riding up to Warby I rode all the way back to Balwyn for 105kms for the day. Probably wouldn't have made it in great shape without banana bread and a coke from the trail Cafe at Mt Evelyn.
