Basically this stage is a bit of fun but the real purpose is to seed the riders so that we don't all start together. Our start time was 7:13am. We weren't sure if this was a good thing or a bad thing. The weather was cooler so probably the best for us. The pros got to start around midday and rather than the 18 degrees we go they got closer 27.
Me and Fanie had a plan to just climb at a steady 300 watts. I looked down and was at 420 watts about 500 metres in. We had already passed a team by then as well. The basic course was a touch of single track and rolling hills with a climb (not that big) till about 12 km. I lost count of how many teams we passed but easily more than 20.
