Yes, the route was less than half the original. So it does not do to compare times with previous races. But it sounds good to me that I finally rode a Sub 3 hours official Argus race. Nearly broke 2 hours!
But the South Easter blew quite heavily up on Hospital Bend. Past Grootte Schuur Hospital, where Chris Barnard did the first ever successful human heart transplant so long ago. We also did not get any grace on the incline at Edinburgh Drive, also known as Whine Burg Road.
The route felt a bit crowded with a possible 35000 people entering the race. Yes, 35 Thousand!
I enjoyed my race today! No excuses, no regrets!
Will wait for the official time, my little cycling computer stated my time as 2 hours 7 minutes for the race.
What a day!
