Well what a first couple of days at the Cape Epic, this race is just massive and it is really hard to convey the scale of things. Theprologue went ok yesterday and we ended up 6th in masters and 49th overall. We went a little conservative as the next few days were going to be massive! The first real stage was a cracker all 115km of it with 2400 of brutal mega steep climbs in 30+ degree heat. It went from the gun and the aim was to hold the pro’s for as long a possible. The first hour had a n P of over 300 watts and some big 3 – 5 min numbers upat 400 watts. By half way we had-overtaken BArt Brentjens and Jan Kirsipu and were up into 3rd on the road and inside the top 30 overall. The heat and relentless climbs were taking there toll and we had to back off a little. With about 40km to go we were cranking again and ended up 5th in masters and moved up to39th overall and 5th in the masters. We need to gain 10 mins to move up to the top 3. Bring it on.
