6am NRR:
From North Road to Southland it was Youngie and I on the front. Two up. Solid tempo. After that I sat in for a while, we'd copped pretty much every red light possible, and the accelerations were not doing me many favours.

Into Mordi, I took a deep breath, getting myself mentally ready for the hurt. Then the bunch split. Cars turning right chopped the bunch in half, and I was in the wrong one. Despite looking for some solid hurt time, I wasn't ready for that. When we got the ride back together I set about rolling through every turn. It felt ok... well, you know, it hurt, but that's ok.

It was another solid morning into a head wind, with all bar a couple of blokes rolling their turns smoothly until lights and traffic around Elwood put paid to the sprint and thus ended the ride.
