At the end of stage 1 was making phone calls back to JetBlack to try and workout how to replace my rear wheel which had decided to crack in one place and pull a spoke in another. I would have though Dt Carbon wheels would have been strong enough.. In the end a local gun rider Paul had a spare wheel for me which will see me through to the end of the week.
Stage 2 on Monday afternoon was purely a hill climb. I looked at the times from last year and though if Ben Mather could do the climb in 42 seconds I should be ok for a 50 second run. Starting out my legs were feeling great. About 6 seconds in I was sitting down spinning as my legs were busted from the earlier stage. Over the line I was just under the 50 seconds and retired to the pool to soak the legs up for tomorrow.
