There's always a first time for everything.

Today was my first DNF for anything other than a mechanical. The cumulative fatigue of 5 long days in the saddle caught up to me. Listen to the interview in this link for the details.

I'm still proud of myself. And I'll come back stronger on the last 3 stages.

In the last 6 days I've ridden my mountain bike 660 km, most of it off road but not true single track. In about 48 or so hours with plenty of climbing, some of it at grades greater than 20%.

Currently I'm in a love/hate relationship with Roman cobbles.
