Puncture, pedal, pedal, pedal, hit back of car, get up, all alone, pedal some more.
So basically after going into the back of another car in the convoy (not very hard, no injuries etc I got to spend a few hours on my lonesome in the Thai heat today! Talk about going a bit bonkers. Anyway, after 4 hours and still a possible 2.5 to go I pulled the pin. Not much to write about now other than just eating my way to heaven via the BEST street food market going round in Mukdahan. Offal, bugs, entrails, you name it, it was there and it tasted good.
Off to bed.
Moral of the story: When in the race convoy, eyes forward at all times. Because if you turn your head for .0001 seconds, Murphy's Law of Cycling #37 states that it is exactly in that moment that the car in front of you will slam on the brakes.
