Cape Epic diary: Day 3

Today we had a long day ahead of us, 134km.

We started off with quite big bunch flat section with rolling hills. Not my type of route.┬áThere were some steeper climbs too and some good down hills. I will take this shorter as the day was quite boring for me and tiring. My partner kept telling me to keep pushing and stay in group of people to slip stream. But the pace often felt too fast for me and it took lot of my energy and the fun out of it. I didn’t mention it was really windy!

There was nice atmosphere in Riviersonderend. We fueled up for last time and there was a stretch of single track that was fun and river crossing but only very short. 10kms to finish in Greyton they had us going few steep climbs and single track so it wasn’t easy finish as never is in Epic.

We came in 11th and 10th overall. I was tired and went to bed early.
