These are snaps I took from my celfone cam last Saturday's Race of Strength sponsored by John Wilkie. The route tho 27kms long is actually a race of attrition coz it passes thru the steepest climbs (if not the steepest) in the whole of Rizal. The dreaded black wall of Pranjetto Hills is part of this race. Shocked The race started at Morong to Teresa then to Sampaloc and finished at Sierra Madre Hotel.

Altho I did not register for the race I tagged along at the back of the marshals. The registered Rocka1 riders for this race were Tiboy, Lizton, Omar and Tatug.

Bisikletaguy has a report on this race by an unknown finisher of the race. Maybe he can share it.

Here are the pics...
