Rapha Gentlemen's Race

The early pick up was not fun 5.15 to be exact ( thanks Nadine ) but we needed to get to the start by 6.30 for riders briefing
It was cold , wet and dark but the coffee van was on hand to warm us up .
I was in the Rapha Continental Team and our start time was 8 o'clock last cab of the rank
A nice big heavy rain shower greeted us on the start line 3,2,1 and we were off and for the next 140 km's ......... hills , flat long narrow roads , gravel , beautiful scenery , sunshine , rain , coffee , laughs,now I remember why I love riding my bike so much I had a ball
Thanks to Rapha Australia for putting the event on , and for the record ( not that we care because it wasn't a race ) HaHa we came in 3rd
Cheers
