Today starts with a short sharp steep up a paved road – apparently its over before they know it!The word for today appears to be ‘swoopy’ – the descents are swoopy with the final descent being 7km long!
Here are some piccies from the huge day yesterday…
Here they are arriving at Earls Cove – the start of yesterdays long ride
Tom was glad to see Mr G at the feed station after a long wait
This is the gigantic climb yesterday… The lean mean Ironman machine that is Tom nearly made it up whilst everyone else walked! Well done Tom!
I have spoken to Rob and he is having a fantastic time, and he is safe and they are looking after each other.I have been in touch with him during the night and he has not mentioned about the fires and is safe.
