Stage 1 of Vietnam Victory Challenge success

It was a hard 48km track, super bumpy and a sweat fest.
I rode it in 2:49 with 58mins in VO2 heartrate zone… ouch!

Managed to get a win in the 50+ and 9th overall and Matt Larkin just got pipped to 2nd in the 40+ category, also Dan Isaacs (ex Bike Culture) managed a 3rd on his single-speed (kudos!!).

Nearly the same course tomorrow in reverse. My rear wheel has three massive cracks in the rim, so hoping to keep it alive and make it through without loosing too much of my 21 mins lead.
