When less is more and more is less
Kampong Kaki Circuit, 60 km. Having completed the circuit in sub-70 minutes last week, I want to shave 60 seconds off today. I reduce the weight of my bicycle by a few hundred grams and pump my fat tyres to the limit to have more speed. I pedal furiously, have a few close calls on the road, hurtle downhill at almost 53 km/h ... only to end up with about 60 more seconds added to last week's timing. Bleah.
