Dave Clamp

Good morning everyone! It’s 04.48 and here is the latest o Dave’s Deca. Dave cycled until 00.15 hrs last night and then headed for a proper bed to sleep until 04.00 this morning. He is now refuelled and back on the track refreshed (as much as he can be!) and continuing to pace himself carefully. He is now officially in 2nd place behind Christian Mauduit by 1 lap as Christian continued to cycle later into the early hours of this morning while Dave was sleeping. It is a leapfrog effect whereby one competitor is bound to catch up laps whilst others are resting and the others are going to catch up while you are resting. Dave still has 290 miles of cycling to go before he starts the running phase and it makes sense to continue to stick to a plan that works than try and ‘race’ each stage.
Dave feels fit and healthy and is comfortable with how he is progressing. Continue to send those messages of support as they mean a lot to him and he sends his thanks to you all.

    After last night’s football, we do expect Dave to finish in front of Christian by the end of the race:-) Glad the plan is still working, keep up the good work (both of you!!)

    Good to get the “multisport” site back and running – we were a bit worried not seeing any updates for several hours. Keep steady and keep to your plan for the whole event.
