TDA Race Update
Life on the 2008 Tour d Afrique returned to â€˜normalâ€™ today as riders bid farewell to Addis Ababa after two well deserved rest days.
â€œIt was great to cycle out of town and back up into the beautiful challenging scenic Ethiopian countryside,â€ said Chris Wille, 2008 TDA racer. â€œThe road race today was similar to the Canadian Ironman course in Pentiction, which features big climbs, fast downhills, and a series of rollers. It was a great day!â€
According to the racers, tri-bars were an asset, allowing an aerodynamic position for long stretches. This kept speed high and cadence reasonable on the rollercoaster of a road. Throughout the day, one had to be vigilant to dodge people sheep, cows and bussesâ€”all on, near, or crossing the road.
