I've been thinking of ways to challenge myself and looking back at the Otsuki 9.0 I did a few months back has got me thinking about pushing just that little bit more. When I talked with Tim (GSAstuto) he said when doing my 9.0, it would have been better doing one loop, then turning around and doing the loop in the opposite direction (I just did two loops anti-clockwise). I'm wondering whether I should give the Otsuki 13.5 a crack (one loop anti-clockwise, followed by a loop clockwise then another loop anti-clockwise thrown in for good measure). Is there anyone else out there as stupid as me that would like to give it a shot? Please note that it will be a really long day with 380km and over 10,000m of climbing.
