A sneaky ride up Mt Wellington after an early finish to work. Still hurts all the way!
Managed to sneak a ride in Hobart this morning and was rewarded by the views that are synonymous with the apple isle. The weather is starting to improve and riding is certainly more enjoyable without the heavy winter gear. We are starting to wind down for the year but look like starting out strong with […] Read More
The new cobra9 pro device has been rolling out this week. The new covers and graphics looks sweet. All new orders will receive the updated version. A special deal for all existing cobra9 users will be announced in the new year. Another week, more cobra9 podiums. This time it was […] Read More
Upcoming casting sessions to be announced soon.
A reminder to all those booked in for the cast session in Sydney tomorrow to bring your cycling shoes. The top cover design of the Semi Pro is nearing completion. The funky white remains on top with the red eva base enclosing the carbon fibre shell. Another feature for those purchasing from the web site […] Read More
Monday becomes tolerable with morning ride and coffee. Nice to meet some new Cobra9 cast members on Friday. Makes it all the more enjoyable
Congratulations to Nathan Haas on a spectacular win in the Jayco Tour. He already has the lingo down pat throwing out a few ‘beautiful sensations in the legs’ quotes that the tour pros would be proud of. A big well done must also go out to Cobra9 cyclists who have been performing admirably lately. Cobra9 […] Read More
Another cracking morning in Brisbane today, perfect for a roll out through Brookfield and back via Gap Creek. The Chelsea (The Barracks) has some new bike racks that we’ve made good use of.
Last weekend proved to be a successful, enjoyable if not busy weekend. Three flights in as many days kept us on our toes but catching up with new Cobra9 members is always very satisfying. Thanks to all those who travelled some distance to meet us (2.5 hours in some cases). We are already working on […] Read More
Well, what a weekend. The World Champs were well beyond my greatest expectations. The informed nature of the crowd, the unanimous support for all athletes (maybe a shade more for the Aussies) and seeing all those familiar names I have only heard uttered by Phil Liggett was a little unexpected and overwhelming. Maybe the excellent […] Read More
I’m getting that feeling that one gets when the tour de france or Paris Roubaix comes around. I don’t usually get that reaction from the world champs, but having the international stars of cycling in your backyard can have that effect. Despite this I have seen a ridiculously small amount of press coverage given to […] Read More
Rarely do you enter a race with the pessimistic expectation of just finishing. Having ridden the course, I certainly knew it would test my limitations. As usual, once the gun has gone, the competitive juices kick in and you start to get delusions of grandeur. Nothings rips these delusions to shreds like a wall of […] Read More
The Cobra9 team will be at both the World Champs in Geelong in September, and the epic one day classic Launceston to New Norfolk on the 14th of September. Any queries regarding Cobra9 orthotics are encouraged at both events. A few of the more ‘masochistic’ team members will enter the Launceston to New Norfolk and […] Read More
A recent training ride ended with me descending a little too quickly and without my bike. A pair of torn Cobra9 bibs, shoes covers, vest and hammered helmet later I ended up paying a quick visit to my local radiologist. All clear with just some scratches and torn pride to mull over. A real reminder […] Read More
Winter is here and the demand for cold weather gear is rife. The mercury has dropped below freezing for my morning ride and roadside snow has made it’s first appearance. As unpleasant as the antarctic air may be, there is a certain satisfaction pushing uphill through snow drifts in peaceful still conditions. Going down again […] Read More
