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.
