    Dr. Jack - if the route is the same it's pretty flat with some gentle rolling hills. I didn't even use the little chain ring in.....

    What a great race. I did the 70km. Finished in 2h13m.

    I started in Group N and was with the lead bucnh until about 40km when they dropped me. I kept pushing and hooked up with another guy on a Cannondale. We helped each other quite a bit throughout the race and finished together.

    Average heart was 181 bpm though. Kinda high.

    I also tried using Cytomax for the first time. Seemed to work well.

    Think this was my greatest race, ever!! Did the Carousel 2 weeks ago, and although it's a much easier race (and shorter) than the Sun City, I didn't enjoy it as much (had a fall 5km's before the finish).

    Did the 103km in 2:56.

    Heard there was a lot of accidents on the day. Maybe the organisers can try and get road closure for us next year?

    Roadster , Sub 3 - well done!!

    I was a bit sick last week and was unsure whether I should race. On Sat my heart rate seemed normal and I was feeling sort of ok so I decided to go for it but to take it easy. Finished in just over 3 hours with an ave hr of 152.

    I did it!

    I finished my first century for this year. I did not set a record but managed to finish in 3:34, 11 minutes better than my target. I was well on my way to a great time untill we turned into the main road on the way back. That is where the wind killed me and my average dropped form 34km/h to 29km/h.

    Ah well, better luck next time.

    Well done Mampara. Yup, that head wind was tough. I tried to break away from the bunch but decided to get back into it after a short while on my own.

    You're well on your way to a good 94.7 time.

    Lab_Rat, I started in the C bunch. Tried to stay with the front group, but their pace was murdurous. The bunch then split and I stayed with the second bunch until the end.

    I started in "D". I think we caught you guys at about 50km. We picked up quite a few "C" riders into our group.
