The second race stage was held around Lake Crackenback Resort. It was made up of 2 10km laps. It was slightly modified from previous years as parts of the track was still under water. I was under the impression that no-one could really get away during this race as it is mostly flat.
Half way through the first lap Andy and I managed to ride away from Dylan and Shuan as they were playing stuck in the mud. It did feel like we were moving, I didn't realise we were fast enough to put 2 minutes into the boys behind us!
At the end of the first day (with 2 stages) I ended up finishing 2nd overall around 1 minute down on Andy and 2 minutes ahead of Dylan.
