The light shinning down on the grounds around Xanadu Winery the morning of day 3 was absolutely gorgeous. A sense of achievement was the vibe in the air. They were half way. Two days done... two to go.

The guys in our team were most excited about the The Pines. A day of jumps and fun with the rain drizzling to keep them cool.
The support crew and I were met with energised high fives smiles. Loud cheers and thank you's for supporting in the rain. We had music playing and the kids had made pom poms.
Matty just riding by looking uber chilled. Gone were the dusty faces of day one and in their place it was all smiles.
It was still a 40km day on a bike... no rest for the wicked.
I need to point out how proud I am of our team. Of all the teams! As a non bike rider I imagine each of these days literally as my worst nightmare. 3... sometimes 4 hours on a bike. Lets face it these seats aren't made for comfort. Powering through scorching heat or rain smacking you in the face! An to top it off the event wasn't over yet!!! Day three down... one more day to go.
