Croc Trophy - Day Two

Day Two was the first of the typical Croc stages - 96km with the first of the big climbing days.  The first hour was under neutral getting riders from Cairns out to the real race start.  After a long wait in the sun, the riders were then set off.

With 2500m of climbing including brutal ascents Nick estimates at between 30 and 40% the day delivered a fair share of hike a bike.

Lake Tinaroo finish - Day Two in the bag.
Rolling in at 5.5hours and 16th in M2 Category Nick was tired but happy with his ride!  Focus then swapped to recovery and preparation for the next day - another 100+km day with plenty of climbing!

Tired legs must recover to do it all again!
