GSB 2014 Day 9 Txts Final Day of the Great Southern Brevet

With 4 riders left to complete the 2014 edition of the Great Southern Brevet they may have felt some pressure. Both groups rode well into the night to finish ahead of any perceived finish deadline (Rule 8: Riders should finish in under 8 days).

They can now have a relaxing Sunday knowing they have completed a monumental route through some of the toughest, and most scenic, the central South Island has to offer having began in Canterbury (Mackenzie Country), traversing into Otago and even dipping into Southland (Mossburn).

Mel, Jon and Donna finished at a brisk 4:20 am, followed with Keith finishing in daylight at 9 am.

Keith started a day later than the field as he had commitments on the Saturday. A top effort to cycle 1200 kms on his own.
