Just had a phone call from our racer. That really shocked me. He was the last person I was expecting to hear from. He had to take shelter from a lightening storm but they're almost to TS 14 (Cortez, CO). He actually sounded great.....not tired or worn out.
The main reason he called was to find out how he's doing. They have no way of knowing what's going on and who's where or in what position. He said there's so many cars out there and no way of knowing where the riders are. He wanted to know what his and some of the other riders stats were.
It sounded like they were going to check in at the TS, get something to eat, and hit the road again. So while we all sleep, I guess he'll be pedaling!!!
