Yesterday I did the short (77 km) route of the Cornwall Tor. It was unseasonably warm and excessively hilly so I suppose I’m glad I didn’t do one of the longer routes, particularly this early in the season.
The winter training must have done some good because I finished 8th. Out of the 205 finishers, only 8 of us managed a silver qualifying time, and no one got a gold time! It was a tough route. Kevin left me behind at the first big climb and finished 3rd. This despite my attempts to sabotage his bike by throwing it on the tarmac and the start. I should have given the mech a kick too, but apparently it gave him jip all the way round any way.
