Trans Gaule 2008 day 8: Finally consistent 11th in 6:17:55 runaway leader does 5:08:28

The first 26k to Chatellerault gave ideal running conditions but
really took off too fast. Perfect to 40 when i passed Fabrice but
found i was lacking extra gear chasing down Hans. At 50 removed gloves
& sleeves & was looking to blast past Robert & Eric but by 55 was dead
flat so eased back to last aid (58k). Revitalised took off, ultimately
taking Eric in last k. Satisfactory day but should have run wiser.
Back to running shorts tomorrow as chafing is good & find bike shorts
only good for up to 50ks.
