Dave Clamp

Midday report Day 7

November 21, 2010

Dave has now completed 117 out of 222 laps (as at 11.10 local time).  Ibuprofen and compression socks seem to work best on reducing his painful right foot and that is promising.  It is coming up to the hottest part of the day and so he is taking a break in the shade rather than risk fainting from heat exhaustion.

Christian Mauduit has established a commanding lead and has reached 150 km.  He has slowed quite a bit but is still moving forward at a steady rate.

    Youre more than awesome Dave. Just take in a few riffs of Junior Walker and All Stars “Im A Roadrunner Baby” while you have a break.

    Hang in there Dave. I am one of the many people watching your progress who you won’t know personally. One of the many people you continue to inpsire.

    The impact you have had on myself and others is huge, whether you win or not.

    Truly incredible performance…

    Bolton update:

    We were in Manchester today and say a car with the Reg
    R E E 13 O K – and thought that should belong to someone at Bolton WFC.

    It did “sort of” – it was Big Sam at the wheel!!

    Official standings site is frozen again (almost 6pm your time) so not sure where things are up to at the moment but hope your foot is ok. You’re getting to the last half now Dave so just keep forging onwards towards that finish line.

    Yo Team Clamp,

    you are ruining my life. It’s 2.30 am (yes am) and I am checking out some lunacy on the other side of the world. Get it finished so I can return to normality.

    Anyway Dave you are doing great. Holiding it together nicely it seems in spite of the obvious problems you knew you would face.

    The end is getting closer all the time and you are on for a good un. Visualise it.

    Now then, how about this: Bolton W. 5 Newcastle U. 1. That should put a spring in your step.

    Keep it going Dave and well done to all the Team.

    John Heaney.

    I’m shaking virtual maraccas for you.
