Unfortunately I didn't take a lot of pic's or vid in the first half of day 3, my only defence being I was to bloody tired
I've been riding dirt and road bike for many years and this was HARD work.
There were several large steep climbs that resembled giant staircases due to erosion and half buried boulders,sections that
were hard packed clay with a very thin layer of mud on top, super slippery
and the usual mud, undergrowth and the HEAT.
I sat in a stream for 30min trying to cool down. I layed down on the track at one stage because I could no longer stand and then when it started to rain I still couldn't get up, and did I mention the leeches.
I was very glad when we cleared the jungle around lunch time for a break and some instant noodles
Looking a bit weary
One of the only pic's on steep stuff , looking down
Vid for morning ride
and this sign in the town were we had lunch, made me wonder about last nights ferry crossing and the one we were about to do
