Grenzsteintrophy Monday Update

By Paul Errington | 20, Jun, 2011

Pauls current location 11am Monday

Sunday..
So far.. 195km on the first day, 230km yesterday but 1100m peak today so 125km ish. Need to average 140km a day from here to make the flight. Tough going from here, only 1 guy ahead of our little group of 3… Just hoping to make it to the end of the course.

Monday..
Well the guys I was riding with quit this morning.. Went to ride a 300km shorter route to end saying the course was too hard. I wouldn’t mind but one of them was the organiser!!
