I'll be there. I missed it last year due to a knee injury so this will be my first go at it.

I'm marshalling at the turn onto the Centenary Highway bikeway. Give me a wave as you go by.

Good luck to all. Remember, it's not a race - yeah right!

Second that, Good Luck to all. (Bit worried, it looks a hell of a lot bigger now that I'm about to ride up it than it ever has before)

I was aiming for anything close to 10 minutes as I had never done that side of Coot-tha. I came in well under 10 minutes. Absolutely stoked with the result although I wasn't enjoying it at the time! Someone forgot to mention the pain in your arms is nearly as bad as the pain in your legs! That plus the added bonus of all that lactic acid trying to escape from my body!

It made the next 60km's a breeze - NOT!

Needless to say the commute into work this morning was very sedate.

Will I do it again next year - absolutely!
