Kampong Kaki Circuit, 82 km. The dark clouds overhead liquefy and pour down just as I start my record breaking feat. Cars part the water on the road like bows of boats, leaving a wake behind. From the overhead bridge, a sheet of water falls as traffic ploughs it aside. My bicycle decelerates as it cuts through water. At Labrador, it is dark. My sunglasses fog up and it's hard to see as I descend. Transmission still sounds funny. I finish the circuit at 67 minutes and some seconds. Bleah. After I togged out in my sleekest bike wear to reduce drag too (and with homemade armwarmers for the first time).
