Day 6 – Norseman to Balladonia

Day 6 – Norseman to Balladonia

by admin on September 17, 2008

Day 6 started 20km out of Norseman, and it was a really hard day.  100km uphill into a headwind before Jack and Brendon got some downhill and the wind died off.  They ended up cycling from 6:00am to 6:15pm and only did 185km, which left them 30km short of Balladonia, both totally exhausted.

Then they found out that the 165km from Balladonia to Caiguna was not 165km as originally thought, but was actually 180km.  That makes it a 210km ride tomorrow to get back on track.

We’re hoping that they don’t get another headwind or they could be way behind.
