Graskop Hill Climb Champs

So my first Grass head hill climb champs went well and the form looks to be on track for the Worlds in two weeks. I managed to put in a well timed attack on lap three of six around the Gods Window circuit, and with Dave and Waylon just siiting on in the small group that was left, I pushed hard on my own to ride the remaining laps and take the road race. Dave rode away on the last climb to come in second by himself, and Waylon winning from the remaining bunch. So another 1,2,3 for the team.
This little episode was followed by the "Hill Climb", a TT up Koowyns Pass. I only realised the effort from the mornings race once I got stuck into the first kilometer of the climb. The legs were like bricks! I still managed to come away with the second fastest time however, just 20sec behind Dave who won in 21:58, and Waylon in third with a time of 22:48. The rest of the weekend was spent training with the Club100 guys and gals, everyone having a fantastic weekend in Sabie.
Well as I write this I'm in Europe- Austria, heading off to race Kitzalp Marathon, starting tomorrow with another "hill Climb". The marathon is on Saturday and will be my final preperation for World Champs the following weekend. Will keep you posted, hasta la pasta.
