Great spin today.Some people had to turn back so we finished up with
eight in our group.We tried to follow route as proscribed.The mist was too thick so we altered our route down to sea level.Attacked the circuit from last week and all seemed to have given it loads.
Then back to Burke Oil Sprint so there were a few tired legs in Avoca for coffee. As we huddled under the lamps trying to warm up we really pitied all
those on warm weather camp .
67 km avg.25 kph.
Groups 3 and 4 joined foces agaun today. 11 made our way to the interval start at Coolwella and soon discovered this road had it all... puddles the width of the road, loose gravel, cow dung, pot holes, occassional tractors,along with misty murky conditions etc etc.
Despite this we got a good pace going and everyone put in a really impressive shift. Most somehow managed the 5 laps and it was a tired bunch,now down to 8, which rolled in to Ashford in the rain.
Everyone present can be happy with the effort today.Some very strongperformances. Roll call was Darren O'S,Darren S, Ronan S, John R, Mike F, Mick H, Tom, Colin B, Owen, me and Nicola doing it for the girls.
Thoughts turned to Lanza and we collectively sighed that those over there had to miss out on such a wonderful experience...... NOT!
