The final day. The ultimate day. Happy day.
We woke up at an ungodly 5:30a to sunshine and breakfast. I ate my usual massive amount of food and went through my usual list of morning chores - fluids, sunscreen (yay!), and pre/post ride packing.
An uneventful bus trip to Whistler and we lined up in the start pen for the last time. The start was split into separate start groups to keep the trails less congested but the 5km of immediate uphill also spread us out pretty well.
