Today would bring us the best weather of the week, so I took a shot at a long stage.
Not long enough to push my luck, though, and I had a plan B, cutting off the far end of the loop.
This stage was the Rothaarrunde I did back in 2014, but in reverse direction.
With the little detour I knew I’d have to make approaching Medebach, this would be around 115 kilometers.
I didn’t want to make yesterday’s detour, as that lead me over a goat trail, which was bad enough going up, but best avoided going down…
