Polished as fuck, pumpy as they come and totally hard for the grade. That said, great for power endurance training.

Yes! So sustained, all endurance. Wasted a couple of RPs with rain approaching and poor sequences, but went fairly quickly in the end. Such a good route!

Felt desperate at the start of the trip, then got back on at the end and it was fine. Perfect style for fitness training.
