Fri 22:08:2008 06:27 Today started well, it wasn't raining.But, if yesterday was hard it was nothing compared to today!This morning's special stage was a figure-of-eight loop around Nant-y-Aran (sp?) It was all uphill. Technically this is impossible because we started and finished at the same place. Technicalities don't come into it it when it feels like your lungs are going to fall out for 46 minutes straight!That nonsense was topped of with another 65k linking stage. I think I did okay in the time trial so I didn't want to miss the cut off time this afternoon. This meant a little extra effort was used up in finishing today. It's pretty much finished me off too.Early to bed again before the final 85k stage tomorrow.*notice there's no complaints about the weather today, that's 'cause the sun came out and we weren't all huddled in tents for a change :-)
