The Tour of Wessex

The cannondale did get reaired in time for the Tour of Wessex. I collected it on the Friday and rode the 3 day event on the Saturday Sunday and Monday. This is easily the hardest sportive I have done. It’s great I got the bike back but 3 days in a new position is not ideal training, I just couldn’t get comfortable and must have went through 3 tubes of savlon and a tub of Assos cream.
350 over 3 days with some of the toughest climbing I’ve done. We might not have 20 mile alpine climbs in this country but we have some really ridiculous 1:5′s with cattle grids across them!
3 days in the saddle combined with those carb drinks saw me return to a whole world of pain which I have been told to stay away from on my blog. The upshot is I will not do carb drinks in future and have returned to nature with nuts and other normal drinks
