WORK IN PROGRESS!!
I’m only a year late with the race report 🙂
I had a whale of a time, got there in under 14 days, which was my target – shame the party was actually on the 16th day this year! The EKO was lovely
I learned how to commit to the ride often riding late into the night into checkpoints 2 and 3, and overnighting in fields in the czech republic. This made a massive difference to the time I had on the bike compared to tcr3.
I actually crashed at a hotels more often than not, but these generally were not planned, and I was prepared to ride into the night, then found a hotel / pension just about to close at 10 at night, so it seemed rude not to roll in 🙂
