People do extraordinary things all the time; it was Geraldine Blomfield-Brown's turn this time.
After winning both Australian qualifying events, she was off to represent her adopted country at the UCI world championships in Denmark in the Time Trail and the 165 kilometer road race.
The Danish conditions were very challenging with extreme winds, which are not ideal for a small, light weight rider. Given this, she was still pleased with her results finishing 10th in the Time Trail and 11th in the road race.
Like most racers, she is now even more determined to better her results next year when she takes on the World again, but this time in Perth, which is closer to home.
Her husband, Chris, Wireless Motorsport's co-founder, also represented Australia in the road race, but at 100 kilometers into the race a large pothole hidden under a puddle ended his day with a puncture. This shows that bicycle racing -- like motor racing -- can be character building.
