GSB 2014 Day 5 Txts

Another stunning Central Otago day (or a pretty damn good day if you were still in Southland!)

It dawned cool and with mist in the valleys but the sun burned everything off in short order. For those who did the inaugural Great Southern Brevet the Nevis was a cold and wet place but today is was warm and inviting (if you can forget the 2 x 700m + climbs).

Txts getting more animated. Reckon some are finally softening to the Great Southern Brevet ;-)

Hi Kevin ,Marcus and Peter eventually arrived in Alex at 1am after following some sadistic course designers devious routing. I am sure great views but at midnight with headlamps approaching the luminosity of a faraway star it provided  extra challenge. Great day at the office. Premo vistas and weather but don't drink the water at gara ten!
