Hautipi Hill

This is me on the bike riding up the Hautipi Hill about 60 kms into my 80km ride! The hill takes about 10 minutes to ride up!

Team: Double Trouble

This is a pic of my relay team mate Tina and myself just before the race began at 8.45am in Taupo. Tina rode the first 80kms and I did the second 80kms.

5 Minutes to Start

Here is Tina with her awesome bike about 5 minutes before her ride. Doesn't she look relaxed?


This picture was taken at Kuratau where Tina's ride ends and mine begins. The organisers had transported my bike here from Taupo and lined it up in numerical order. Then I hopped on a bus in Taupo and was brought around here (about 1 and a half hours by bus).

Downhill Pursuit

From the look on my face I think this pic was taken as I was going downhill... very fast! My fastest speed was 69kms!
