Longest stage of the Race.
Day before the toughest stage. First view of the mountains
Let me dispel two rumours:
1) the Free State is not flat
2) it is not all downhill to the coast
I can vouch for both these facts.
Overnighting at the Sterkfontein Dam. A little nervous about the climbing that will be required tomorrow.
Day 4’s summary:
Ascent – 1600m
Descent – 2300m
