This time I put a bit more effort in the push myself up to race pace, Ali was right on my wheel though, she is fast! Part way round and she noticed her bars weren't quite straight, fortunately I was once again ready with the multi-tool to sort it out. Down we went flying round the corners with smiles on our faces, we just had to climb up to do the last section of singletrack again.
All that was left was the blue section so one long climb and we were back into singletrack, once again it had to be repeated before returning to the car.
We'd rode 21miles and Ali was very tired, so tired in fact I ended up driving home!
