At 01.30 hrs local time he completed his 939th lap of the circuit (1800 kilometres) and is preparing to start running the first of 10 marathons. It has been difficult keeping up with him but I have succeeded in being with him every pedal of the way!
Dave is going to have something hot to eat, a quick medical check up, change into his running kit and get straight out onto the circuit again!
Oh, by the way, I nearly forgot to mention….he is in the lead by 21 laps! Nearest 2 competitors have gone to sleep for a few hours so he should be able to build up an even healthier lead overnight.
