    Well that’s 20 & 21 done and I don’t mind telling you that 21 was a bugger, my little legs were jiggered on those last climbs. Even the 3% rises on the last run in were nasty. :heat:. I took stage 20 really easy so I had plenty of energy for the run up to Preston - still very tired.

    I’m off for a week now, back Thursday. Keep up the good work lads. Getting close to half way. :thumbsup:

    If you liked 21 you'll love 23 :headshake:,:bicycle::boxing::B) :surrender:. I got a bit of the magic dust up a couple of the steep sections 15% but that was bloody and 2D/Map only :banghead::wacko::crazy:

    Stg 24 is fun...... not. After the 3k start @>5% you get lots of 2-300m kickers in the 4-8% range. Then you have the final 3 or 4k of about 4%. Hard work but maybe fun :headshake:

    Enjoy at your leisure :banghead:

    Flipping eck Boxers... not likey at all. How demoralising to have a 6 minute start on you only to have 4 minutes lost on one climb and another four on the next climb - Now 2 minutes down.. you sure do have wings up those hills. I clawed back your ghost on the last climb and out sprinted you in the last mile.

    The only highlight of that stage was that it saved.. xx(

    Sorry :whistle: I get kicked all over the place on anything upto and including about 5.6% (where the trainer appears to max out for me). If the steeper slopes follow on from a 5+% section then those sections follow on at the same resistance. However if I can gather enough speed and match my wheel speed correctly I can carry that speed at a lower power and resistance level going from a lower % to a higher one. But it is all relative. Look at how slow I was on NC2. No slingshot there. 4-7% kilo or longer climbs just break me.:cry:

    This is a BRVR ride of Sugarloaf xx( :surrender:

    BRVR Sugarloaf

    No slingshot on BRVR :thumbsup:

    It would appear that both LEJoG leagues are now updating again. :thumbsup:

    I’ve just completed stage 24 which was ok, I quite enjoyed it apart from boxers flying past me on the hills... I managed to pull you back on the last climb. :cycle:

    Stg 24 is a kicker. Up hill down dale no chance for a steady pace. A bit of dust at 24k up the 15% but that was still a tough stage.

    Edit
    Oops should be 25

    Ah.. you mean 25 I think.. yes, I completed myself this afternoon. Whilst cycling it, I thought it a perfect stage for you... fast downhill, super fast uphill.. I’m pleased I didn’t have your ghost. It looked brutal on the profile however the majority of the climbs were between 4 & 6%, with odd cheeky 9% to keep me on my toes.

    The legs were a little tired with consecutive stages over the past four days, however, the next couple look like right :heat::B)... then steady off over the border to the land of the Scot. :cold:
