Hi everybody! Dave is still pedalling away and, although he didn’t really sleep last night, he has stuck to the task and cut his times taken for rest stops down by eating on the track edge (still on his his bike!) and has had an hour’s sleep at 12.30 when the sun was at it’s heighest in the sky. A wise move as the temperature has been 28 degrees (82.4 F)! The chip system has been playing up and now I can’t access the times on the organizers web site! At 17.23 he had done 624 laps which is a massive 1,196.775 km and is about 10 laps ahead of the next cyclist. Still in the lead and happy with the rate at which he is lapping (comfortably!). Next feeding stop is at 18.30 hrs so we shall report again after then.
