I remain very suspicious of what was given to Team C by a man just near Forrest who had a multitude of different coloured bottles and who was acting very suspiciously . When Team C crossed our path they all looked very spaced out and unusually happy!
Anyhow. a great weekend was had by all and some of us even ventured out today.
Next year, I hope to get 1 of our teams under the hanicapper's radar and take home the winner's trophy.
In defence of Team B , and the riders assembled by the captain, if the result was based on a simple equation of moving time divided by riders kilograms divided by the amount of excuses why we couldnt train due to holidays and manflu, not to mention an additional penalty derived by having the most experiences (read "oldest") member of TFC , then its clear that team B fared extremely well and we are all looking forward to it again next year....
A big thanks to Bones for organising a sensational day of riding and dining.
Team C's strategy and goals were rather simple - ride and race as a team, climb hills at our own pace (that's why we were spaced out and happy!) , meet the 4hr 30min riding time target (which we did with 30secs to spare) and most importantly - be at the finishing line in time to witness Team B crossing the line. Mission accomplished!
Our Team C formula was very simple - Princess Power, all three of them. Just follow the instructions given by those bosses because they can ride on all terrains.
With regards to questionable liquids and supplements, we used bidons provided by a certain Team B experienced Pinarello owner/rider, packed into the team car by Team A's speed princess and delivered by a very elegant Sean Connery like person. We were just happy spaced out recipients.
