Makes perfect sense – that’s the big appeal for me (I have yet to do any stage races). You’re not chasing a cutoff and you still get to experience a huge portion of these beautiful areas.
I got into the Dragon’s Back this year but a major promotion on being a project lead at work, meant I simply couldn’t dedicate enough time to train, and travelling from Eng to Wales for recces at the time was not possible.
So reluctantly, I withdrew.
That’s too bad but congrats on the promo. Hopefully you’ll get another chance at it!
Thanks, yeah I hope to do it. It moved from a 5 stage to a 6 stage event, with I think about another 45km and 3,000 added. Camping in Sept in Wales with no showers? I may have dodged a bullet anyway.
