Led into this with an easy week so feeling good. Met schepsi and we started together but pulled away on the climb a little as I was hunting a CR on the climb up to the cross. Walked a little bit at the top to see if he would catch me but couldnt see him so pushed on to camels hump. Rejoined him coming off camels hump and cruised with him for a bit before pushing away as I wanted to have a crack at the FKT.

Really enjoyed the Sanitorium Lake part with trails flowing through beautiful forest. Moving fast coming down the zig zag, trying not to overdo it but turning the legs over quickly. Pushed the final climb up Towrong at a good clip before taking the rocky descent a bit more chill than usual as the Salomon Pulsars aren't made for that terrain. Pushed on again when I hit the final section on the road, finished controlled as had another 2.5 hours to go!

Happy to go under the FKT by 1.5 mins - still well within reach if you love a mix of ups and downs so looking forward to seeing what the next person can do!
