Third Quarter of the race.
Wishes of good luck come from the ever helpful water point crew as the toughest part of the race dooms large. Take care and take in the beauty of your surroundings – it is truly a privilege to be able to ride on these unspoilt tracks. The highest point marks the halfway mark and down the valley Bonniedale and a welcome Spur burger at water point 3 awaits. The steep and technical descent into Bonniedale must be negotiated with care – beware this could cost you the race, so be careful – a lot of riding is still to be done. Leaving this rural dwelling refreshed and revived, riders take the gravel roads through the pine forests on their way to water point 4 – take care at this, the hottest time of the day, and keep hydrating properly.
