Day Four - Iliomar to Com

Todays stage was another relatively easy stage, with riders needing to cover 79km between Iliomar and Com.
Once past the initial climbs, there is solid descending into Com.

Higlights included passing through Los Palos, home town to Anche Cabral, the leading Timorese rider.  Thousands of people packed the roadsides to cheer Anche, and all the TdT riders along creating a fantastic experience for riders and spectators alike.

A number of riders struggled with the descents, Nick himself reporting a bit of 'overcooking' on a few corners!  Com is apparently a primo beachside position, and with the water front views on an evening, it was very tough to turn down beers. 

Nick is still holding down 13th place in GC for 40+.

Only two days until Dili and you can have those beers Nick!
