Had a great ride yesterday and did way better than I expected. Spent most of the first part riding with an ADF guy and eventually 1 other pulled in with us. Just before the Helipad Gavin and another bloke caught up and the 5 of us trained it till the end. I wen't out front on the last bit of bennetts and cooked, dropped off the pack by 20m and didn't get them back till the last decents as the pack was all over the shop on those last few turns.
It was good to meet up with so many people at the end that I have met over the last 12 months through BMORC, Dirty Tri's and other events.

Thanks. Absolutely not on the single speed. I was always going to be riding the Anthem for this one.

Overall 25th out of 582 riders is massive! I hear you have been doing some training, so the hard work has paid off. Well done.

Yeah that's a good effort. Nice one. Those last few bends certainly did mix it up a bit.
