TABLELANDS TOUR

This is a bike race that I'll allways be going back to while I can still ride a bike. How many have i done? Thinking about 11.

All the racing is held around Yungaburra. With two 70 plus km stages. A 5 km time trial. And a 96 km lumpy stage. might i say that i hate hills. With 50km to go I was ready to throw in the towel. 5 km out I was off the back watching the pack ride away. But somhow At 5 kms there was that slight smell of finish line in the air. About six other desperate riders that I sat on dragged me back to the pack. 600m out, the pack was pulling around 60 kmph. I tried to pull out and better my position but the pace was to hard. I waited for sprint to start and caught a wheel to better my position in the pack. the final result was messy, and as the picture shows i only got a second.
