For my second race ever in the history of time, up until now, was the Dwello 100, I went in the 60 (it was actually 65km [rabble rabble rabble]) I even prepared for this one!

I ate an entire packet of gnocchi the night before, it did the trick, along with some bars and some baby food shit that KD's rocko set me up with. I comfortable rode the whole thing in 4 hours and 3 minutes.

Ive ridden 60km + before but not up and down steep as heck hills that kangaroos avoid, so eating the right combo of cappuccino gel pack and carrot cake n coffee just before start kept me going well into the race. I also got bonus rest breaks every time someone with clips saw a rock garden and immediately fell over. HA. Fuck that.

Running out of water 8km before the refill point sucked though, luckily for me a very unlucky fellow rider who's pedal broke off and a volunteer gave me some water which I am very grateful for, and if there was a 36th in class step on the podium, they would have got a shout out for sure.
