speed ...my own worst enemy

Finished a fairly respectable 25th outa 150 riders/16th in my catagory

not overly happy with my result i know i was capible of better , but the powers that be decided i wasnt going to win

i spent the first 30k of the race in the top 5 taking my turn up front , turns out the first 10 or so riders passed the half way point well ahead of the expected time and so the waterbutts werent in place

resulting in the big man above hitting my with his hammer and saying STOP ....

no fluid from about 25k lead to huge cramps in my legs climbing ships cone

not too pissed off didnt come last and it was good training ! there were more climbs and they were steeper and rougher than anything ive ever ridden in the uk , the 100km at selkirk is a piece of piss in comparison i swear to god !

We are in queens town now , been on the bungy jump off a bridge was fucking awesome ! will post the video when i get back to my own pc !
