The initial nostalgia of having the entire valley route to yourself bathed in near full moonlight at 3am wore off by 5am when weet feet plus cold equals grumpy riders.

Its a long big slog out the valley when we reached Damsedrift support station…thankfully Moira tumble dried our socks dry whilst we kipped in the sun for 45min. With 84km down we still had another 91km to make it to Willowmore.

This section is a long series of climbs and turns before settling put on the plain. With toasty feet we made good time at hit the sleepy little Willowmare at 5pm, a 14.5 hour day.

My fearless racing snake partner Andre is now concocting more jumps, so we are going to sleep from 7pm to 11pm then hit the road and ride through the night…….eish, wish me luck!
