Snooze Control

The Team was joined for a stint of cycling in Northern Croatia by Hobart personality Richard ‘Snoozer’ Parker (click here for Profile). Snoozer, who was in Europe to watch his brother Mal compete in the America’s Cup sailing, showed admirable commitment to the cause by borrowing a bicycle, purchasing accessories and flying to Zadar to link up with us.

Zany: Richard Parker

As it turned out his lack of preparation where it mattered most, in the saddle, was his undoing – not so much from a fitness perspective but a bung knee which saw him bow out three days later in Ljubljana. Although his first cycling day was a memorable stint up the coast from Zadar (via Pag Island), those three days were unfortunately characterised by torrential rain and the most sustained bad weather of the trip so far.

Nevertheless, it was fantastic to have him on board and, in addition to boosting spirits, he was able to assist in the endless task of keeping Sean out of trouble on the town.
