Sorry no pics , don't take a camera with me on the marathon thing.
This is a yearly marathon that i allready finished 8 times , sometimes in bad weather conditions but today the weather was perfect , 73 degrees and lotsa sun.
Single track à volonté, techical stuff and speedy downhills 8)

65 miles and a ruffly 5000 feet climbing , was pretty hard today as my chain wouldn't go on the granny ring and i was too lazy to stop and try to fix the damn thing. A guy at one of the resting stops tried it but no avail. Think that the front deralliuer is a bit too weak and flexes to much.


I'm gonna put the smiley's here myself before someone else does

Damn dude -- those are some big numbers. Big mileage, big elevation gain, big avg. speed and big top speed. Well done.

The avg and top speed on GC aren't really accurate. Elevation gain on GC is allways less than what you really did :D
Thx. Was a fun epic day for sure.

New GC link , is a bit more precise.

Interesting to look at Belgium's patchwork landscape in Google Earth.

Or perhaps most interesting: How you tally up over 5K in climbing with:
Min Elevation: 24 ft
Max Elevation: 343 ft

:lol:
