Finished with a brick 6km in 41 minutes.

Nutrition – 4 gatorades, 4 water, peanut butter sandwich, 5 gels, one Cadel bar and three handfuls of dates.

Headache at 125km on Glenhaven climbs. I had everything I had left on the food front to get energy levels up. Will need to include salt tablets on the ride.

Applied suncream three times.

No flats this time. I have sacrificed speed for tractor tyres. Definitely have to work harder to get up to speed.The 90km yesterday was followed up with 142 km today in 6 hours- exactly and includes two refill breaks.

Garmin details – happy with 23-24 km per hour with the climbs and the gorge,
