Was fortunate enough to be in the race convoy for the 2014 Grafton to Inverell Classic. What a race. 228km of pretty much every type of riding challenge you can imagine. Cross winds. Head winds. Constant undulations. The 18km climb of Gibraltar. And then 35+ degree heat. A few of the old timers said it was the toughest conditions they can remember. Everyone who finished earned their medals, that’s for sure.
