Justin's son Simon and a few of Justin's friends went to Bright last week and rode the Alpine Classic as a bit of a memorial ride for UJ1.
A good day and a great tribute to Justin, especially from his son Simon and nephew Lincoln, who both rode the 200 under 10 hours in the poor conditions. Simon also wore a tribute kit and supplied us all with typical UJ1 cycling cap as a memento.
A great and emotional effort from Simon, who intends to go back next year and do it again.
I met Simon at the end of his ride. I pulled out at Tawonga and returned to Bright - not fit enough for the 200 this year, and the early conditions on Mt Buffalo didn't help.
