Blue skies and smiles!

For those that managed to reach the top of Thomsons Gorge they were treated to blue skies and a noticeable climb in temperature.

Blue sky! Steve, Mike and Nathan enjoying the downhill from Thomsons


More Salt! Matt tries to replenish his electrolytes while Scott has a tech fix


More Water! Dave and Hamish stock up on H2O for the Grandview Ridge crossing






Keith looking refreshed after a generous lie in this morning

Skinny tires?? Hamish does it tough


Geoff Blance taking time out of his Sunday to meet and greet Brevet riders in Thomsons Gorge
The front runners are closing in on Wanaka this afternoon while the rest enjoy the warmer temperature.
