    Great to see Wiggo attacking in the mountains yesterday, looking to silence his critics methinks

    Well you could be forgiven for thinking Dan Martin is on today's showing.

    1. What's the distance?
    2. What's your best time over that distance?
    3. Aim to beat that time.

    Simple really.

    112k, about 3:40 (well, 3:23 on a 100k).

    TBH its more of an exploratory "do I like sportives" entry. If I do I'll be sure to enter a summer one so I can a get photo of myself in italian-clothed quad bulging glory...*

    * AKA hunched over the tops trying to get up the steepest hill.

    They're quite good fun not that i've done a huge amount myself, if you riding alone get chatting to people around you and try and get yourself into a good bunch...avoid the bellends dressed head to toe in Turquoise Assos riding the Bianchis giving it all the gab and acting like they were actually racing in the crits!

    Indeed. The 50 kmph 'cruise' in the last few km looked effortless for most.

    Brilliant. Imagine burning someone off on a 22% gradient after 246k...!
