Anthony Vink’s Peaks Challenge Gold Coast Ride Report

Gold Coast Peaks challenge 2016 was just that ,a real challenge , very glad I followed much of the advice included in your training plan and videos .

My time was better than I expected , official time 9:44:17 with a Garmin moving time of 9:21 , that means no stops and 21 minutes faster on the climbs and I can nail a sub 9 hour jersey.

Next year I will begin preparation earlier ,especially on the strength exercises.

Can not believe I am talking about next year while still struggling to walk properly today. I shall be in touch for more advice when I have settled in to my new work role (more free time for cycling on a real bike as well as the spin bike).

Thanks for your help in achieving my goals and then some .

A Queensland pre-challenge winter Boot camp could be a great way to spend a week in the sun getting ready for the 2017 Gold Coast challenge. It was an awesome day and the weather could not have been kinder.

Regards,

Anthony.
