St Kilda Cycling Club put on their yearly criterium club championship today.  As always it was a great event. A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers and SKCC committee for a great season of racing and fun.

Here in Australia it’s now the end of crit season and the start of road season.  It never stops – I love it.  A cyclist’s paradise.   Since this is the last crit for the next while I thought I’d bring out the helmet cam one last time.  Unfortunately I didn’t expect to wind up in a break for 45mins and the angle of the cam wasn’t good with my head low down the whole time.  Unlike my last helmet cam video, this time I was racing, not gallivanting up and down the peloton getting good shots. Not ideal, but you get the idea.

If you’re interested, the music is by Animal Collective (My Girls).   The helmet cam I’m using is the GoPro.  Amazing camera – especially for the pricetag of less than $200.  I could barely feel it on the top of my head (see pic below). It takes 2 AAA batteries that last about 3hrs and a 4GB memory card record almost 2hrs of video.
