GSB 2014 Day 7 Txts

Another absolutely stunning day for many starting in the Maniototo and finishing in Mackenzie Country.

The wind was generally light with the short (15km) turn on Haldon Road at tough head wind. There was some very localised and unusual weather phenomena which resulted in rain that existed in a small 1 km square area and dramatic fog rolling over the passes from the east.

Many riders enjoyed excellent riding conditions and arrived well ahead of schedule and had to revise their day plans. Most choosing to push for the finish in Tekapo.

Those continuing on were rewarded with spectacular views of Mt Cook and the Mackenzie basin before a short roll into town.
