Why it's gonna hurt...

Cunningham Classic... in 2012, it will be the 30th edition of this annual Qld road race.  We previewed the "hilly bits" of the course last weekend ( I had somehow managed to effectively block it from my memory bank after doing it in 2008, or was it 2007 ? ), and yes I remember now why it's such a tough race.

There are no "major" climbs, but the 'problem' is that it goes uphill for the first 45km or so.  No relief from constant pressure on the pedals.

And then once it is flat, you usually get a howling headwind for the remaining 50km or so to the finish.  Fun times ahead next weekend!
