It's rediculous. This means that only the top guys will be able to do it. The last time I rode it was in 1994 and still only managed to finish it in 5h19m (that's only ride time). I wanted to do it next year but will first see if they gonna continue with this "no stage" setup.
please note that this is a flecken hard race and is not for the faint hearted for those who completed the argus in under 4:30hrs it will be hard for those who came in after that i suggest that this year you try the 60 km.or the 105km(i think)as the 150km is a real toughy and needs preparation it is not flat!!!!!!
Well, thats over with for another year! I found Boulders easier this year, but took major strain over the last section. They seem to have found some extra hills, and grown the others by a couple of meters.
It was pleasure finishing in the middle of the day instead of at about 4:30. It meant I even got a hot shower for a chnage!
Yeah, Boulders is tough, much worse than anything else we do on any of the other funrides. Maybe as long as Ou Kaapse Weg, but definitely steeper, and the steeps bits are all at the top! Most (non-MTB) guys were using about 39:25 gears.
My cousin is one of the nurses at 1 Mil (he was on the defense team) ICU where he was taken. I didn't race (me lazy, me bad) and the first i heard about it was from her the following day. He was apparently still unconscious when last i heard. I'll let you know anything further I hear.
