Not going to breaking a race record today. Really gusty, cold conditions with mostly a headwind blowing. Might be closer to a 7 hour time than 6. #G2I18 160/228kms— BrakeDown Podcast (@BrakeDownPod) May 12, 2018
11.20AM The main group in division one is about 30km out of Glen Innes. The peloton split into two up the mountain, but came back together into one group of about 70. The weather is still a factor, at approximately nine degrees, with a lot of debris still on the road. There’s about 97km left in the race. According to Peter Sunderland, it’s still anybody’s race, with good numbers represented from all the teams. Riders are expected to make their major moves after Glen Innes.

#G2I18 Both the break and peloton are on the Gibraltar climb. This climb should surely split the peloton apart further. Reports are that winds are blowing a hail at the top of the climb— mobius BridgeLane (@mobiusBridgeLn) May 11, 2018
“I like to look after our customers to ensure they get the best in terms of value, quality inclusions and a great build – all backed by the power and reputation of national building company, David Reid Homes. All of our plans can be adapted – bigger, smaller – it’s all about you getting the home you want. With our great team of local professional tradies and top quality suppliers we also have the in house expertise to turn your dream luxury home into reality”Well it’s all about of Raising the Standard. David Reid Homes Hervey Bay is a luxury home builder, continuously looking at ways to improve the quality of service and construction offered to home buyers on the Fraser Coast. Using only the best of designs, techniques, subcontractors and materials is one part of the process of “Raising the Standard”. Another important aspect of Raising the Standard is understanding clearly what the needs of the home buyer are. Understanding the needs of the home buyer incorporates several essential factors:
“…a one-of-a-kind house that is designed for a specific client and for a particular location. The custom home builder may use plans created by an architect or by a professional home designer. Custom homes afford consumers the opportunity to control layout, lot size, and accessibility. In most cases, custom home builders construct on land the home buyer already owns. Some developers sell fully serviced lots specifically for the construction of custom homes. This makes it easy to build a custom home since the lot is construction-ready and builders can focus purely on the design of the home.” Attribution to wiki
“Custom home builders
- Build unique houses. A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for the wishes of a specific client.
- Some custom builders may offer design/build services.
- Build single-family homes.
- Are generally small-volume builders.
- Tend to build high-end homes.” Attribution to wiki
We chose to build with David Reid Homes because of their competitive price and quality fixtures that were included. We were able to build a home to suit our young family and our love for entertaining. We were given more than enough choices so that our home could reflect our personality and differ from others. We found Ben to be very professional, approachable and knowledgeable when it came to our house plan and what inclusions would work for our home. We are definitely pleased with the finished product and would have no hesitation in recommending Ben or any other or in the future building another home with David Reid Homes. Thank you
