    Thanks everyone, had a great ride and was going to be happy with anything under 3:40. Got down GOR really well in an hour, found a nice rhythm on the climb and went really well over the 2nd 1/2 for a 31' KOM, Now going under 3:30 was possible! Nearly got taken out at the drink station at >45km/hr when some hubbard decided without looking to turn right and go to the drinks station. Having survived that bump formed a group of about 7, which worked really hard across to Deans Marsh. Now I had to get up the final climb in under 25mins, my hammies where now twingy and on the verge of cramping. Tried to keep a really smooth pedal stroke, with lots of self talk. Held it together without cramping to the top but couldn't push through the pedal and so ended up with a 3:31. And a surprise top 25% and at 110th for 40-44yo, was 3 inside the cut off at 113. Lucky for me some 452 had entered! Spoke with the director de sportif about going to Slovakia to represent our country (maybe in a 1 piece!), was met with the response of 'sure!'

    A fantastic weekend out riding for Peak Cycles and also with the equipotranquillo boys and the greenWedge armada! So many stories and had an awesome time.

    I'm not surprized at all Cyril, all that training and "E"s in front of recent rides meant you right in line for the UCI medal, well done.
