Well, for the haters, it was a great day. Lots of fun and the rain slowed the course down a bunch. Good way to finish the TOM off.

Regardless of many opinions, I think the race was a good test of overall fitness and bike handling skill. It's easy to call out the punters on the descents, but if you are a 4hr finisher you have some work to do.

I will miss the annual bike ride and related smack talking with friends in preparation for the race.

Well I felt shit after a week of work hell but I'm pleased to say I have done it so I can get back to bitching about how crap it is 😝

So many better XCM races around these days.
