Check in before the start of the stage 5 - the pain cave
Oblivious to the pain that awaits
Today I spent the better part of the almost 5 hours of riding in the pain cave. Every once in awhile I would poke me head out and enjoy a few brief moments of riding, but for the most part I laid in the fetal position, sucking my thumb.
It was one of the hardest days I have ever had on the bike. I guess the previous days hammerfest destroyed me. Not only had my wheels come off, but this sucker was on blocks with no engine either.
Stage 5 65km - 4:55:46 36th place
Heading to another ferry - Reservoir Dogs style with Grande Americano's (in a public display of humiliation for my riding I wasn't allowed to walk with the others)
Buffed out 1-track
It kept coming
