My favourite race was the 2012 Dischem Ride For Sight Cycle Challenge; I managed to get into a nice group with a bunch of guys who blocked me from the wind, and then the veterans came past us with a few kms to go, so I latched onto them and managed a sub-2, which was a pretty good time - oh, you mean the other type of race?
