Givin' it some Milos-stick

One of Australian cycling's longest-serving names from Penrith Panthers Cycling Club, Peter Milostic, laid down the gauntlet for the rest of the week with an impressive time trial win in Coolum today.

And speaking of well known cycling identities, Rod McGee (Parramatta CC), brother of FDJeux.com Tour de France stage winner Bradley, posted a great time to place second. Russell Van Hout (Adelaide CC) rounded off the podium places, finishing just over a minute down on Milostic.

Milostic let his legs do the talking, channeling his frustration out on what has been described as a course tailor-made for TT specialists, and gave his motor as much Milos-stick as it could handle, blitzing the field with a time of 51.35.60.

Although when Cyclingnews caught up with the newly-crowned winner soon after his effort, he wasn't so sure:

"I wasn't stomping today - I wasn't flying at all, but I recently won the NSW time trial championships by a huge margin - so if I won today, I won on good form.

"I'm always focusing on time trialling, because time-trialling helps my road racing, and I put a lot of effort into these events - so hopefully it paid off.

Second placed Rod McGee was noticeably more optimistic, however "Macca's" attention is focused more on the criterium on Sunday:

"It was a very tough course mainly because of the cross winds, but as far as the circuit goes, it was perfect. The wind was the same for everyone, so it didn't really matter. I got to the heart rate zones I wanted to and I was feeling pretty good out there today.

"Today's time trial gave me a good idea of where I'm at, but my favourite event will be the criterium in a few days from now.

Speaking about the complexities in managing the NSWIS-FDJeux.com development team and balancing his own training, Rod McGee considers himself fortunate just to be able to both:

"I wouldn't say I've got a set program that I follow. When I get the opportunity to train I do - so I don't train as much as I'd like to, but then again it's [managing the NSWIS-FDJeux team] a job - so I'm pretty lucky really."
