I'd say I'm in probably the worst shape I've been in in years, but I feel like I've had some of my best (with a few not-so-great) races in NZ. I'm starting to think being a tad slower and a lot more focused isn't an inherently bad thing. Regardless, enjoy TT - looking forward to cheering you all on from afar!
Good to hear! Some of the NZ maps I've seen look pretty sweet.
Yeah it seems like the forest races will be fairly technical, so I think the outcome will be more dependent on technique than speed. AKA who screws up less :)
