Video n°6: King Country – Waikato

From Hamilton to Taumarunui. It was not as easy as expected:

We have been caught on Pironga summit 24h by a strom… 3 days of continuous rain… rain and rain. After that, you face long section of gravel roads… that’s when you really start to be bored and what makes you go on is only the mental picture or SOuth Island Mountain… “it is just a warming up”… and you keep going.

Après Hamilton et jusqu’à Taumarunui, ce fut la mise à l’épreuve, non plus du physique, mais de l’esprit. Bloqué par la tempête au sommet d’une montagne, 3 jours de pluie non-stop. Puis des dizaines de kilomètres de route en gravier…
A chaque fois le leitmotiv “Allez, c’est de l’échauffement pour l’île du sud”… “Allez on continue avec le smile”…
