pippa 5hr coondooI had signed up for my first solo lap race and on the drive to Nowra (in the awesome white bike van with Fi and team manager Joe) it suddenly dawned upon me that I hadn't really thought about the logistics of the race. Should I wear a hydration pack? Should I have water or Perpetuem on my bike? How often should I eat? Should I stop? Who would refill my bottles? I casually asked a couple of questions and (after picking their brains for about half an hour) I felt more prepared and ready to race.
