It's been a while since I've been on The Hub - thanks 2020. Anyway, what another cool Double Century, except for that early start. I loved open roads, the non-neutral 2nd stop, the heat and tailwind home. But above all, I loved racing my bike again with mates. DC weekend is always special. I know it was *** hot and windy out there for the later starters, but this format is definitely better for the racing teams (although it's also much harder as there is nothing but open road for miles and miles ahead - no strategic drafting at all!). It's safer, it's fairer and it's more strategic. Not having a finishing venue or post race vibe was weird, but I guess this is the new normal. Nothing that a little team braai can't fix. Anyway, to everyone who rode, whether you finished or not, well done. It was tough out there yesterday, but that's what we expect from the Double Century. If it was any easier, we'd have more golfers riding bikes. I'll try to get a race report together later in the week (I haven't written one of these since the end of January).
