I'm now showered, rested and feeling good. The event was fantastic, a great change from Kowen. As far as racing solo goes the course was one of the toughest I have ever done. Over the two loops we covered 26km, 600 vertical meters and about 50 tight switchback turns. The surface was mostly rocky and moderately technical. I enjoyed the course right down to the final lap. Full race report to follow.
Thanks to everyone who sent their support, it never goes unnoticed and I really appreciate the gesture. Thanks also to Ben for his support, helping Robyn to keep me going, keeping my bikes tuned to perfection and keeping everyone informed on how the race was going.
Ben gets the great job of driving the eight hours back to Melbourne and he does all this without one complaint. Thanks Ben.
