I was up in the morning and nervous as anything I got the car packed, tried to leave as much behind since Ali had to repack the car everyday and the weather wasn't looking favourable! Once I managed to get all the bits that Ollie had had sent to our house there wasn't much room left for me!!! We waited till team GB had won a few more medals in the Olympics - some rowing and swimming. The journey down was pretty straight forward and we arrived at Builth Wells at about 2:30pm, once the tent was up - just before it started raining. i got registered and put my number and timing chip on the bike. We walked into Builth Wells to buy some food, once back at the camp the rain seemed to get heavier and heavier so we hid in our tent till Ollie and Joe arrived.
Then it was time to cook dinner, a very hot chilli (we both assumed it wouldn't be hot even though it was described as hot on the tin!). After that we went to the main tent for briefing, no real suprises, since it was still raining we just headed to bed.
