    they feel surprisingly good, I tried to ramp it up a bit on the springs as there were tourists. I did a big slide around the corner and was foaming out the mouth.

    Just what all the tourists came to see?

    they didnt speak english, but I stopped near them to take a photo and made sure they could see me giving myself some drugs.

    I then did a big burnout on the way off shouting about winning the yellow jersey.

    Iain, good job on the tourist edumacation. Stu still pipped me at the top of Mary's Hope but I think he disappeared off into the bushes to puke afterwards.

    Iain, what's your puncture mitigation strategy for the tubulars?

  18. Marc D.
    Marc Durdin

    Ant, I think it involves buying new wheels!

    yeah if they puncture, I use my phone, dial a lift and figure out where I will get another $80 to get new tyre / get fitted.

    Okay. I have a can of squirty latex stuff. (Can't be bothered with the traditional preglued spare tied under the saddle with an old toe clip strap.) No idea if it works though. Marc has the most appropriate solution I think.

    The other alternative is a neutral service vehicle. Works in Le Tour. Mostly.

    i would be interested to see if the glue stuff works from a can, just dont want to test it really.

    Carry a spare tire wrapped up already sticky with glue? I believe there is a method for this that would get you home. Wouldn't try descending on it but might get you up the hill worst case scenario.

Kudos
