pictures are here...

24 brave souls assembled at eau claire market, ready to tackle the daunting task of 18 climbs in 78km - with some climbs approaching 20% grades!

the day was pretty much perfect, not too much wind (early on at least), glorious sunshine, and light traffic. the course markings (hi-tech spraypainted arrows) were easy to follow, and the suffer faces on the riders - sensational!

fergus and bix beer market welcomed our shattered legs and lungs with tasty pints, yummy eats and a well deserved rest.

great job to the 8 (out of 24) riders that completed the entire course. for the rest of you (well, me included) - you now have some training to do in preparation of next years event. see you all then!

special mention has to be made for Leon - he rode the entire course on a singlespeed road bike - ridiculous! when asked at the pub post ride if he would do it again, his answer was - "are you fucking kidding? not a chance! i dont know what i was thinking"!

no shit dude! did you look at the map???
