A hard ride finished by brave men, in harrowing conditions. The images don't do the hardship justice; rain, gale force winds, 10 degree temperatures. Don't ask me why but I loved it, suffering and conquering. Checker's Hill should not be underestimated - it's short but very steep (20%) for all its shortness. The TDU will not be easy, train hard, train long, train steep. FS
