A day of weather, both good and bad. With heavy overnight rains around Molteno, the racers have had to find an extra gear to keep going. Alex left Brosterlea at 02h30 and is still on the go – today he’s been through Romansfontein, Hofmeyr and Elandsberg and is currently on his way to Stuttgart – he’ll most likely have a short break there before continuing to the finish in Cradock, so he’s expected to arrive in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Mike and Casper are a few hours behind him, having left Brosterlea at 05h30 this morning. They have just passed through Hofmeyr en route to Elandsberg for a quick nap before conituing to Stuttgart for breakfast and then home to Cradock.
Behind them is Tim, who has been ill – he was forced to take a short sleep at Romansfontein before continuing and is still on his way to Hofmeyr.
Staying at Romansfontein tonight are Theo, Colin, Gavin and Henry, who rode through from Kranskop today.
Closer to the finish are most of Batch B, Fiona, Leon, Craig, Annie and Stewart, who are all at Elandsberg tonight. With them is Jonathan (Batch A). They are expected to finish in Cradock tomorrow afternoon.
