tour of Waikanae

10 10 2010

A tough day at the office today.

For some reason I’m always underestimating how tough it is to ride 100km. The Tour of Waikanae is a completely flat course, a circuit of 25km, giving the participants the option of cycling 25km, 50km, 75km or 100km.

It was a bit if a wake up call for Taupo. I still haven’t learnt my lesson about eating right and not going out too fast at the start. In the end it was not conserving my energy that killed me, that and the headwind all the way along Te Moana Rd!

My official results are here.
