Rode this event with Martin, great route with some nice climbs. The weather held off nicely on the day, so although chilly and a bit damp, the overall conditions were pretty good for January!! Would certainly think about this one again next year, only negative thing is the sand, killed a set of nearly new pads!! A speedy pace set by Martin meant no stopping and faffing taking pictures, not always a bad thing as we Martin & I came in 14th & 16th place respectively out of 62 on the 50km route ... that'll teach me for not eating on the move and stopping for a banana!! I've since invested in (and been meaning to for months now) a pouch that goes on the top tube behind the stem, the prefect size for a packet of Jelly Babies!
