First of all well done to all who completed the grand slam 3 today,it was a hilly ride and tested some of you. On that note i ask should there be a cut off time in which to complete the full distance?
On the way back from cape jervis as i passed through normanville i came across riders from the grand slam on lap 2 , it was 4PM ! Now i know you are going to all say " we dont all ride as quick as you ,or they may have had a problem but this aside spare a thought for the volunteers who have been on the go since 5 or 6am and need to wait until all riders are safely back, which they willingly do ,these riders ,if we assume started at 8am on lap 1 had been on the go for 8 hours to cover 120km ! If they had started only lap 2 by 10.30am as suggested as the latest start time then thats 5.5hrs to ride 60kms? All i am saying is, should there be a cut off time so the hard working volunteers from bike sa dont have to wait for one or two riders who underestimated how long it would take them. PS no hate mail please !! I will always support any rider who gives it ago but maybe they need some home grown back up on these longer rides.
You are lost without my wheel to follow Matt ;)
hahah- you'll catch me about 4ks in then I'll be right :)
I'll plan to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I to to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, after working twenty-nine hours a day down mill (blatant plagiarism) then ride GS4 :-)
i am going to start the 200km gs5 a week early :-)
And be thankful for it!
But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won't believe ya'.
