A race report from the one and only Peter Munn, he who encourages others to write them, is back with a bang!

Tour of Pembs sportive report.

If Carlsberg did race reports then obviously read Joel's epic report from last week.

What is there not to like about this superb sportive. Well Stop & Call hill for a start. I'll get to that later. A week previously when biking with Dr. Dick he mentioned he was doing 80 miler with Nathan Miles, Dave Astins & John Rees and he asked me to perhaps join them. Now they're a bit tasty in the saddle so I declined but he assured me he was going really slow first 2 hours. I thought I'd see how it went and then do my own thing to pace myself.

So on the day after a seamless registration and it was great to see so many different clubs represented. There was a great buzz about the place so I sauntered over towards start and the boys were also joined by Sian Williams, Celia White, Steve Pryke & Phil Thomas. This worried me a bit but we were going to take it easy initially and also Sian and Celia said they would ease back and stay with me if the pace was too hot. Yeah right I thought!!

Anyway we set off at a nice leisurely pace with Dave trying to push the pace but the rest ignoring him. Good move so far. It was a steady first couple of hours with a tailwind everyone was feeling comfortable. There were numerous early hills as expected but I was totally prepared for the monstrous steep climb before Maenclochog (Henry's Moat). That's the steepest climb ever & I was on the limit up that baby.

The first food station couldn't come soon enough, I was out of juice and gagging for a cheese pasty. What a fantastic spread and I could have stayed for at least an hour but no sooner than you said 'Jam & Bread' the doctor was chivying us along. The doc hit the front and set a just about achievable, for me' pace. Everyone had shed a layer or two, with Sian setting a world record for amount stuffed in back pockets. Gilet, rain jacket, 17 gels, hand pump, foot pump, 3 bananas, 3 flap jacks, a potato & 2 small faggots. She was obviously getting her monies worth, I liked her style.

We all stayed together with some mega draughting happening, until Crosswell, which was the unofficial start of the Preselli climb. Then the big boys screamed off saying 'see you at feed station'. That climb was a grind with me swiftly getting into 1st gear and just trying to stay steady. Dave later informed me he was KoM, whereas I think I was in the running for WoM (Wimp of the Mountain).

The Gwaun Valley was super scenic but once out it was everyone for themselves. I'd psyched myself up for 'Stop & Call' with 68 miles already in the legs it was a toughy. I thought about stopping when our daughter Jo and her partner Jordan were half way up, and they'd made a banner up 'Go nanny Karen & Bampy Pete'. It spurred me on, I was in a lot of pain near the top & nearly crying when Team Cemais started cheering their frigging heads off. It was uplifting, thanks.

I didn't really want to stop and with Doc, Phil & Nathan saying they were off I thought I'd try to go with them but alas they were too strong. I settled into a nice threesome with John 'The Beast' Rees & Celia 'The Machine' White and we settled into a good tempo sharing the work, that was until a mile from end when Celia screamed past us shouting come on boys. It took all of mine & John's efforts to catch her. It was great to cross the line, I couldn't have done much more.

I was greeted by my beloved Karen, who wisely did the 60 miler with a colleague of mine, Jason Hyde. They were both buzzing, both thoroughly enjoying the event. What a fantastic event. Superb organisation, marshalling was ace, food stations brill & the post event meal awesome. Well done to everyone.
