Forecast is good so hopefully it is just cool early morning riding conditions. Suspect later txts will be more about the headwind and the heat.
More finishers in Tekapo overnight (and late into the night).

Ian and wendy checking in from roxburgh. Very tired in Alexandra. Big feed and rest and then one of the best rides so far through the knobby range. Excellent sunset all good except for wendy's crash in the dark descent.
