Our ride today was amazing. We rode a loop around the northwest part of Maui, getting in the 119km in 4 hours (well, it was actually 4:01....). A massive "mahalo" to the trio of Simon, Jordan and Kyle for the draft during the first 70km. Kyle made the hilly ride especially epic as his shifter cable snapped early on and he rode the hills in pretty big gear. I am sure his cadence was hovering around 20rpm on a couple of those climbs.
Once the real hills started (in other words, the sweet draft was gone), it was Team Gunz and Team Sausage riding together. We were a good team, taking turns for the last couple of hours and finishing with some really solid watts into the "gale-force" winds. We finished off the day with an hour run and some hill strides in the cane fields.
We are all racing a 1.2 mile open water swim race tomorrow that allows the use of fins. Well, fins for everyone except us (JOEL!!).
