6am NRR:
Ungh, getting up at 5am to ride gets harder when you're not doing it regularly.

I'm glad I did though, because after the normal processes, I was soon hanging around the corner of North Rd and Nepean Hwy. Much like the gents waiting for their morphine outside pharmacies on Chapel St, I was waiting for a fix. My drug of choice is still endorphins.

Today they came with a side dose of humility. I started off chopping some turns at the front, which is nice for my legs and morale. At some point I was a couple of wheels back, Jez Hunt sitting on the front. I figured I'm a nice bloke, I'll roll up and relieve him. Instead what happened was he turned the screws, and I made it to level... then spent what felt like an eternity trying to muster even more power to get over the top. Eventually (probably a mere 20-30 seconds later), I cracked and headed back to the comfort of the bunch.
