Stage 8: “After the Croc is before the Croc…”

Today Martin had a very good day on the bike – “I can’t believe what I achieved today, to have the 8th Croc done makes me really proud”, he said from his post-race recovery spot under a palm tree on Four Mile Beach.

“I raced hard and on the descent must admit did have work and family at the back of my head – that Bump Track is so technical and so steep, you really need to be mentally and physically strong to get down that hill in one piece”, he admitted.

Finishing in 8th position outright today he secured the 5th place in the A3 category and said that it was a hard race, “We had a strong head wind and the sand was quite soft on the beach… wow, now we’ll celebrate!”

Martin finished the #croc8 in 16th position in the field outright and is already thinking about the next one, “After the Croc is before the Croc…”
