Dave is feeling much better after a shower and another sleep this morning and has got back out on the circuit. He is currently in 2nd place on 146 km behind Christian Mauduit on 167 km. That is only 11 laps behind and they have to complete 222 laps in total. There is a long way still to go and Dave is quite aware that it is anyone’s race due to the nature of it. It looks like it will be hot again today, perhaps hotter than yesterday, so Dave might have a sleep from 12.00 to 14.00 to help his cause along.
Thanks for your messages and guidance. Much appreciated!
