Hi Everyone, I just wanted …
Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to say an enormous Thank You for your support for my ride. We raised nearly US$1500 for relief efforts in Nepal.

The ride was somewhat epic. Not only the hardest thing I've ever done, but also incident-packed. I got caught behind a crash coming down the first col, then had to wait while my brother had two separate punctures. Having started in the last group (@1000 riders out of 15,000 total) I was then racing against cut-off times at various parts of the course. At the last one, I missed it by about 5 seconds. The Gendarmes erected barriers and faced off against hundreds of angry french cyclists (hell hath no fury...). As les rozzers literally wrestled to the ground a couple who had tried to sneak through, I followed a few others who found another gap. My recorded top speed of 78kmh was recorded on the ensuing descent.

The last 15km climb to the finish almost finished me, but I crossed the line in just under 10 hours. Everyone I met said it was the hardest Etape in memory. I certainly won't forget it.

Thanks again for your support!
