TDU 2015 Stage 6 “Rider’s Sign On Board” for Sale

10336674_915804288452152_5110196932901444701_nThis is huge; I still can’t believe I have the Stage 6 “Riders’ Sign On Board” of the Santos Tour Down Under!

It is history in the making,  with number 1-Cadel Evans last ever sign on signature of a World tour and number 7-Rohan Dennis first as the World tour winner. The value of this bit of history is hard to estimate, but personally I think it will get me very close to my Iron5for55 target. Continue reading TDU 2015 Stage 6 “Rider’s Sign On Board” for Sale

Kevin’s Supporters – THANK YOU……

Admin Message

RT0813_090668-smallThank you for joining the fight to beat cancer!.  2014 is  the year of 5 for Kev.  In turning 55, he set the goal to do 5 Ironman races in one year and win them all, tri-ing to raise $55,000 for cancer research. That Goal is not yet complete, only the races, but like all races, there is always another. The quest continues for the $55,000.

Get more involved, check out his “Donate or Sponsor” Website Page and his “Facebook” page.  Even though the “Guess my finishing times” for each IRONMAN to win great prizes from Kev’s sponsors, has now drawn to a close, the fight for Cancer Cure does not STOP!

“Today, is another day, you can help beat cancer by supporting Kevin.”

Thank you from  Admin.

Vystup na Gloucester tree - 61 mIf thats not enough, when I spoke with Kevin this morning, to wish him well. He tells me he is of to Climb “The Gloucester Tree” today, a giant Karri tree in the Gloucester National Park of Western Australia. At 72 metres in height, it is the world’s second tallest fire-lookout tree, and visitors can climb up to a platform in its upper branches for a spectacular view of the surrounding karri forest.
