Im so excited watching this race develop.  All of them are super human by the looks of it.

 

I took my daughters aged 13 and 11 down to the start of the race on Saturday and it was so awesome to meet some of the people doing the race.  

 

FB and Instgram are awesome to follow the race along with https://indianpacificwheelrace2018.maprogress.com/

The whole thing seems to be going a bit screwy now.

Im not sure everyone is riding to the same route/ rules.

i suppose it is just s big social ride but will take the gloss off those who do it properly.

There is just one guy (Dark Knight) - riding a different route (an Audax route). Everyone else is doing the IndiPac route.

But as you say, it's not a race anymore!

Dark knight now in the lead? :wallbash:

And if he follows previous form, it'll be straight along the M31 for an easy win.

 

Are you sure this isn't our mate from WA?

Dumb question but how do they know the way?

Most of them have a Garmin eTrex with the course loaded in it.

Yep, they have a dynamo charging one of those battery pack things. The battery pack thing is hooked up to a USB hub which is hooked up to lights, Garmin, phone, etc. The battery pack and hub are usually in one of those little bags on the top tube (you can put something other than gels in them) and then cables run everywhere.

Seems a pretty efficient set-up and the dynamo looks to be quite effective

at the mike hall memorial ride in Sydney last year Sarah Hammond, Kristoff and a few others had their bikes there and were happy to show and explain the set ups,

exactly what Naut has explained, was pretty cool to look over them , the USB plug comes out of the stem top cap etc

Yep. I suppose it isn't a real race, but a shame that he'll take the glory of first to Sydney. This from yesterday.
