GSB 2014 Day 5 Late Txts

The first rider to complete the Great Southern Brevet 2014 arrived in Tekapo just after 1 pm today, followed by a further 4 riders just before 7 pm.

There may also be a few attempting the late push tonight while those more mortal are converging on Alexandra and Roxburgh for the Lake Onslow-Ranfurly leg tomorrow. Weather is predicted to be fine but with a headwind :-(

Subject: Birthday song for Craig Phillips - birthday on the 22nd January

On the off chance you are somewhere near craig phillips on the 22nd January – a song to sing to the tune of  happy birthday J

We’re all hoping he cracks Tekapo on his birthday!

On your bicycle you’ll stay
for 20 hours of your day
with Brian, Anje and Tristan
As you head Tekapo way

Your friends are losing sleep
To watch your tracker  go bleep
Cheering out with excitement
When it takes a big leap

We know you’ve got grit
And an intelligent wit
Hope they’re easing the pain
While on your bicycle you sit… and sit… and sit…

We know you can last
This one final blast
All the way to Lake Tekapo
Go Phelpsie  go fast!

Ranfurly: Terrain and wind dictated a frustrating slow day. Pedalling hard and going nowhere. It was like watching paint dry.
