Jon Keyzer reporting to you live from Blenheim. I’m absolutely zonked after a long day from Nelson to Blenheim, but so stoked to have pushed out a big final nudge at about 9hrs riding and 152km. The last stretch from Picton had me delirious and the headwind back into town was no slouch either. I’m sad the Brevet is over and I’m already plotting for next year.
