    Liked this story over at road.cc.

    Some of the quotes are great…

    “Lap number one is horrible, as you’re stressed about getting on schedule. Then each lap after that is horrible”

    “The last ten minutes are excruciating. I was praying for a puncture or my chain to snap just so it could be over.”

    Reminds me of riding TTs.

    Didn’t Eddie Merckx say it took him a month to recover from riding the tour and a year to recover from the hour ride.

    Or as Obree said “It’s like someone pulling your fingernails out: you’d do anything to make them stop. But you can’t stop. Your body is racked with pain but you mustn’t slow down.”
