First finisher!

And the first finishers of the severely weather affected 2017 Great Southern Brevet arrived in Lake Tekapo as the light faded on Day 4.

Hats off to Matty Graham for an above and beyond effort in challenging conditions.
At the front of the field he had to contend with riding into the unknown on more than one occasion.

First the Herculean effort of riding over Duffers Saddle to the Nevis only to discover it impassable and having to ride back up Duffers Saddle (1300 meters) the next morning.

And later Matty was first to come across slips on Danseys Pass Road and had to negotiate, carefully, around the slips and washouts.
