This weekend away never ceases to turn into some kind of adventure!
I found it very difficult to resist not entering all the awesome events. Friday evening I won the Peri Night race for the third year in a row..., good start!
On Sunday it was the main marathon events. I felt very confident to make it 3 out of 3 for the weekend! Brandon and I broke away from the rest going up the first major climb. I took the hot spot at the highest point and had to stop for water before we raced down the mountain again. Brandon rode strong and maintained his lead over me. With about 7km to the finish it looked like I would catch up again..,but I payed the price for the previous 2 day's racing and cramped up!! frustrating!!! I could only look on as the 3 chasers passed and rode away from me! Jacques won the 3 man sprint with James taking an impressive 2nd and Brandon third! I had to settle for a disappointing 4th!
Thanks Nick Stubbs for hosting us on their beautiful Denleigh dairy farm!
