The first 30km was going show who had brought their A Game to McGregor and the field split up on the
first climb and then came 90km of chasing, I was laying 5th overall at 25km and slowly lost position as
fatigue set in on my upper body, weird how I can race over 200km on the road and blow up on the MTB
its all about training different muscles and adjusting to the MTB.

Winner Sebastian Stark and Robert Hobson second. Myself finishing 12th after totally blowing up at 80km

I realised quickly I was not here to win but too learn and that I did.
