Grateful for the start in temperate and dry conditions. Plan today for Subway Pro Cycling was to make breaks, get up the road and hope for a stage win and a good GC position.
This was a hard task given the ambition of the rest of the peleton was fairly similar!
First hour = 47.5k covered
Second hour = 90k covered
Come the K.O.M. at 155k I was cooked!
I’ve had some good rest, food and massage. Looking forward to tomorrow.
Finally, it’s a pretty awesome step up from New Zealand racing – instead of there being 4 or 5 really good guys, there’s over 100!
