Stage 6: The Rookie


Stage 6 is behind me. Only three more stages to go on this Tour of Sufferlandria.

Strong on the bike this morning. I did load up on carbs last night and went to bed at 9:30pm so perhaps that helped.

I still have some legs. Three more stages though. And the last two are brutal.

A friend reminded me that some races can be even more brutal than the Tour of Sufferlandria. Take stage three of the Volta La Marina in Benidorm. The riders were literally blown off their bikes. Some tried to continue by putting their feet down to keep moving.

Is that suffering? Putting your feet down during a race?? In the Tour of Sufferlandria, we keep going. No matter what!

The 2016 Tour of Sufferlandria


This is my race number for the 2016 Tour of Sufferlandria.

The 2016 Tour of Sufferlandria begins on February 6th. There are nine stages with one stage per day:

ISLAGIATT (2 hours)
Revolver + Revolver (1 hour 30 minutes)
The Best Thing In The World (48 minutes)
To Get To The Other Side (1 hour 30 minutes)
The Wretched (48 minutes)
The Rookie (55 minutes)
Do As You”™re Told (47 minutes)
A Very Dark Place + Nine Hammers Power Station + Violator (1 hour 46 minutes)

This will be a very challenging nine days of riding however a malcontent believes that the entire Tour of Sufferlandria is a scam:

Frankly, he comes across as a bit of a whining Couchlandrian. Someone hand him a donut.

Can he suffer through this tour? I am doubtful.

I know I will.

Legs speak louder than words.
