Out early enough this morning, ahead of the heat but it was still warm enough on the bike although given the position of the sun, not in direct sun all the time.
Saw 2 lads on bikes ahead of me near the bottom of my road, and caught/passed them at the hotel. So their presence behind me was a small bit of motivation.
Traffic lights after the straights, before the tunnel, hole in the wall. So stopped. Waited for them to change but the 2 lads who i'd passed didn't, they gave themselves about a 25-30 seconds head start on me which I reeled back in before the climb started.
Hole in the wall reminds me, there's a new one between Torc and Dinis this morning. Wasn't there last night when I went passed, so some car must have been trying to jump in the lake in between.
11.21 for the climb, so not desperate, but had been avoiding it.
A few bikes coming against me on the way back down. Legs didn't feel too bad towards the end, some tiredness creeping in but nothing major.
