Dili - Metinaro:
Went for a ride with Justin along the race route. Out along the beach, up past Jose's house and through to Merinaro, then back the same route.

Going up the short rises meant attacking hard out of the saddle. I managed to hold Justin out on all of them bar the back of Jesus climb (back into Dili). It had me sweating, swearing and zig zagging across the road. I even tried to drop to granny (22x11), but due to the pedalling force it wouldn't drop. :(

P8300202

Drank 6L of water, it took until about #5 to pee clear.

Starting to feel excited, there's a weight of expectations beginning to descend, I'm nervous.
