Ao chegar ao 2º abastecimento acuso 108 mg/dL, comi convenientemente! O António esperou por mim para fizermos o resto juntos, supostamente já eramos os últimos da grande.
In the morning I woke up with 167 mg/dL, I made the normal insulin adjustments taking into account the number of miles I would do it.
The DexCom G4 sensor "let me on foot" on Saturday. Not yet to see my blood glucose interpretation during a mountain bike race...
The week before despite being hot at 5km I had my legs and bike wheels literally buried in the mud. As usual, I advancing from behind, or, I’ll take control, taking some pictures to illustrate.
Because of drugs I've been taking I did not succumb to the "death rows" - red signal to ALLERGIES! The grass was at its maximum strength, had heights that it was better to close your mouth!
By 10am and some minutes I arrive to 1st supply where they already roasted some meats, but not wanting to waste too much time; I didn’t measure my glycemia, ate a banana, a dry cake with half juice and dilute the VITARGO ELECTROLYTE.
The tracks separation was before 40km, by the effort I took a VITARGO GEL, after climbed a "wall", at which time follow together with António Pequito.
Reaching the 2nd supply I accuse 108 mg/dL, conveniently eaten! António waited for me so we do the rest together, we were supposed to be the last two from the biggest.
At one point we stopped to do a 'recycling' of how to repair a hole! It was the 2nd time he stopped, we found the peak of 1st hole in tubeless tire, we patched the inner tube, always filling (pump and CO2) and finally, proving that we didn’t have some results, we had to replace the inner tube, summarizing, more than 45 minutes stopped.
The land roads near Tinalhas led us to the spectacular single tracks worked out for this event requiring the technique of both 29 wheels.
