8 day challenge on trainer road started today, wow that was a rush and quite awesome, a very challenging 79mins but love every minute of it, great way to start the Mother's day festivities.
The opening stage of 8DC builds toward a
long, Alpe d'Huez-like climb meaning there are numerous switchbacks on a
long, sustained climb with difficult but not extreme grades. Following a
long, fast descent, the race is likely to come down to a field sprint.
There's one intermediate sprint and a single KOM on the finishing climb.
I was able to hold the pace quite reasonably, but quite a challenge which see how I survive the next 8 days
