The “Total Time” is my time in June which includes morning tea, lunch time and breaks. That day was cloudy, windy and drizzle and very cold! The track was good in general but some sections were very muddy! If you slow down to average 3 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 7:45 hrs. Official record 5.5 hrs one way.
