We did the round Taranaki today. Good race – well organised.
Very hot – no wind but got in a good bunch and did a bit of work from Opunake to Eltham.
Did about 4.10 which would knock about 35min off pb.
Get caught up in a few too many discussions when riding – doesn’t help lungs or concentration. But one interesting one about how the Maori Party and the Nats could move back to promoting pies as part of the school diet and cut the training for teachers in PE and at the same time promote stomach stapling. Amongst the cyclists the consensus was that they were nuts.
Update 4.09 – 3rd in old guys age group. Best time in all groups 3.52. The professionals who started later did 3.53.
