6am NRR:
The finish of this one has left me buzzing (though that could be the coffee), a day of hard that ended with a quick sprint, all of which I took part in.

I didn't work 100% of the time, I started the ride chatting with Lachy and had the sit of my life on Eddie Wilson and Rob Crowe up Rickets Point. It was such a good sit I called Skinny over and we shared a Rob Crowe leg each. They're big enough that you almost don't need to pedal.

The turns I did pull were tough, strong boys riding big wheels were having fun and I was just proud (of myself) to be coming through consistently. I almost cracked along Brighton Beach, but for a set of lights that went red as I was struggling to come over Craig Johnson. Once that moment was past I could smell the sprint and became revitalised.

The crowning moment was chasing down DK on the run towards BP, releasing the sprint that had strung out behind me with 250-300m to go at 60km/h. I even felt like I had more in me, both the speed and that feeling were firsts for me since last summer when I was training for the Kilo.
