This is how the hard men train these days. A brief respite after 3 gruelling hours at the track-face, curtailed by an 8 stitch gash to James’ knee. The recovery fluid of choice for these dedicated team members was Stella Artois, chilled to 6 degrees in the back of James’ Subaru. Cheers
We made it. Bleeksie, Chris, Greg and Alex.
210 people and a big trout. 80 to go
4 hours to do 70 km. Hard riding
Just arrived at Khancoban. 110kms down. 220kms to go. Time for a bacon and egg roll.
Chris, Mike and Greg finished the 250km suffer fest and Bruce completes the 200km event which included Mt Buffalo.
The weather was kind to us although the headwinds at the top of Falls Creek were not welcome. The climbs are long and steep but what goes up comes down! I am sure by next year we will have forgotten about the bergs and will have another go!
