    Who else here traded a perfectly good day in for a day of hard work doing the 167km MTB Race?

    How did it go Engel?

    (I sold my R2TS entry as two weeks before Comrades was a bit too close for my liking)

    The problem is still my 110kg petite figure `I have to haul around. Did not really train for it, entry just came around and took it. I only train 5 days a week mostly on a trainer.

    Man those corrugations and sand were bad! luckily I run big rubber and a santa cruz dual that helps a bit! What I did not like were those stupid hill at the end.

    So I woke up with a sore body, legs were ok and were invited to go riding with the adventure bikes on sunday. So a cool 250km offroad with a 1200 gs adventure doing single track and ride on gravel rock next to the railway just finished me off properly! Im resting today. Tomorrow back in the Pain Cave
