4 days and counting...
Gonna be wet and shitty, expect it. Anything else a bonus. Seeing Chris2 face when I came in at about 2am to changeover will stick with me forever. The sideways rain, full waterproofs, soaked before you start, and slightly 'WTF are we doing' look cant be beaten.
What I have learnt from last year is that although it might get wet, cold, windy, shitty etc- stick at it. Need to be there at the end. I wasnt last year, but its a must as I know now.
Although the night monsoons where really quite special last year, by late morning on Sun, it was like a different course again.
Should be a fair few RB shirts out on the course, always gives you a great lift when you see this riding
Pain shared is better
took me 2h40 minutes to finish that lap .
But forecast is looking ok at the moment .
i have 3 pair of shoes , plus one to be delivered by ed , so no excuse not to ride till the end this year .
