Me and Fotta are consequently after the others.. Headwind is still so strong that we realice we can´t catch up the others on own power. Fottas is riding a CBF125, strong machine, but also suffers from the topspeed. We put ourselves in slipstreaming after each other, slip and alternately switching. After a while we catch up with them, it is about the same time as the XR125 begins to lose the leading group.

Headwinds from Enköping has also made me think that all this slipstreaming was the funniest part of the whole journey. Like it lot! However, in Borlänge, it's time for me to turn home. The others are now driving south and I take direction north. My idea is to drive up to Sundsvall for the night. Fatigue is now starting, I've been by this time awake for thirty hours, and except for a cup of coffee not eaten anything since the evening before in Sundsvall.
