In2sport team rider, Stuart Morgan, wins Tour of Bright, Masters

With only seconds separating the GC contenders after stage 1, Stuart was faced with a 15second time difference to the leader after the 15km ITT. In stage 3 after having broken away with two other GC contenders, Stuart was pondering his options including asking himself “who’s ya nemisis?”

“I recalled the efficient evaporative effect of my Nemisis kit coupling with the elegant Euro-style trim to create a perfect amalgam of form and function. Armed with the confidence that my rivals battled the heat in inferior garments I was free to overcome my Nemisis.”

In a tenacious attack at the base of Mt Hotham, Stuart soloed to the summit 30 seconds ahead of the GC leader – it was enough to claim GC victory!

Well done Stuart!

Nemisis Team Sets New 7 Peaks Record

Andy van Bergen, Shane van Seters, John van Seters have set a new record of riding up Victoria’s 7 Peaks in 34 hours, 49 minutes, and 33 seconds!  The climbs comprise of Victoria’s 7 ski resorts: Baw Baw, Lake Mountain, Buller, Buffalo, Hotham, Dinner Plain from Omeo, and Falls Creek.

Staring down the barrel of an ascent of the hors category Baw Baw  - starting from the gatehouse, on cold legs, at 7am, in 3 degrees was a daunting prospect. But the build up of adrenaline, and months of training saw us tear up the climb – and two of us actually even managed to set a new PB.  It was then over to Marysville for an easy (in comparison) ride up Lake Mountain. The highlight was checking Shane’s heart rate readout of 191bpm when he almost lost it on a corner during the flying descent! From there it was over to the ‘rider’s mountain’: Mt Buller. Aside from a pretty hot pace, and our traditional finish at the top of the 22% gradient road to the Arlberg the ride was without incident – and the descent made any suffering quickly evaporate.

Wanting to make the most of the day – we shot across to the gatehouse at Buffalo – for a car-lit run in the dark. Finishing at the top just after 11pm, we were asleep in the car before it even rolled out of the carpark. An early start, and an easy roll out of bed and onto the first climb for the day (and already the fifth for the weekend!), Falls Creek. The legs were screaming murder for the first few kms, but we soon hit our rhythm. From the top of Falls we were picked up by our support crew – and driven over to Omeo. By now the temp was up around the 31-32 degree mark, so the exposed climb up to Dinner Plain had everyone hurting. A drive down over Hotham to Harrietville, a quick feed – and we were on our way for the final climb of the weekend. Those pinches on Hotham have never been as cruel, but the finish line was looming, and a combination of carbo shots and adrenaline kept the legs turning. Finally we rolled through the tunnel, 34 hours, 49 minutes, and 33 seconds after leaving the gatehouse at Baw Baw.

Melbourne to Warrnambool

A 7-man team toed the start line at the 265km Melbourne to Warrnambool in a massive field of over 200 riders.  Joining the successful team from Goulburn to Citi were strong men Mark Hewat (Footscray 3 Day Tour champion), and Jason Costin, plus young up-and-comer Cam Stewart who recently returned from racing the Tour of New Caledonia. 

A 20-man break escaped the peloton quickly, although the main field showed little interest in chasing.  By the 80km mark, the gap had opened to more than 12 minutes, and it looked as though the rest of the field were racing for pride alone.  Misfortune struck the Nemisis-Sea Shepherd team early, however, with Simon Knowles crashing in the first 100km, and Cam Stewart suffering the effects of a stomach bug.  Both riders withdrew at 150km. 

It was at that point that the chase in the main field lit up as former National Champion and In2Sport pupil, Darren Lapthorne, and his Rapha Condor teammate Kristian House hit the bunch hard, splitting the field through the feed station at Lismore. 

Unfortunately Deery, Sietsma, Hewat and Costin were all caught behind the split as they negotiated the mayhem of the feed zone.  Stuart Morgan was fortunate enough to survive the split, although the impetus of lead chase bunch subsided when the gap to the break remained over 10 minutes at the 200km mark.

Nemisis Athletic Apparel Team

Nemisis Athletic Apparel cycling team launched. In association with the marine conservation organisation – Sea Shepherd and elite coaching business in2sport, the team will contest the National Road Series including the Tour of Geelong, Goulburn to Sydney and the Melbourne to Warrnambool.

The Nemisis-Sea Shepherd presented by in2sport cycling team consists of Melbourne riders Jason Costin, Mark Hewat, Jono Thompson, Cam Stewart and Stuart Morgan, Steve Robb, Canberra rider Dave Deery and Sydney rider Kor Sietsma.

The team clothing features the distinctive Sea Shepherd Jolly Roger logo that is creative version of the well know skull and cross bone pirate flag. The Sea Shepherd adage ‘it takes a pirate to catch a pirate’ is symbolic of the logo.  Sea Shepherd (the good pirates) pursue the bad pirates (drift netters, whalers, sealers, and poachers). The skull represents the death that humans inflict on the creatures of the sea – and is further detailed with the dolphin and whale "yin yang" symbol in the forehead of the skull.  The cross bones have been replaced with the shepherd’s staff representing the Sea Sheperd Conservation Society and the trident signifies both Neptune and Sea Shepherd’s direct-action approach.
