I don't know the # and I actually hope Matt doesn't know the #.

He says he still feels good
He's just at 900 miles....The TT's on the other site finished at 1121 miles. Good luck bringing that bike down this final stretch.....

Matt seems to be picking up the pace. Since he stopped for the headlight his average is more like 38 mph with 166 to go at 5:42 MST meaning about 4.4 hrs to go.

But it appears the chase crew is with him....Hope all is well.

102nd wind!

I just got a good text from chase crew that Matt is much better. (He was having some nasty stomach cramps.) He's having fun again! Must be those nice big headlights!

Chase will meet him at Santa Rita, RM 1011 and that will probably be it for them.

RM: 1013 He is in pit with the crew near Santa Rita. Average speed so far is 27mph. Looked like a whoops section out by the coast. I could see silt beds from outerspace there as well. Hope to have a report from pit crew soon.

Start singing "99 bottles of beer on the wall" cuz that's how many miles he has left to LaPaz!!
RM: 1021
Quote from Matt as told by chase crew: "Passed a TT pinned in 6th gear before San Carlos"
Mrs. Frog reported crew to say "Gone & Strong" as he left the last and final pit.
Next stop LaPaz

RM 1036. Picking up speed. Approaching silt bed section so I'm expecting a slow down. Chase crew on HWY 1, next stop LaPaz.

All the Way!

Frog and Mrs. Frog....

If you do go thru and read all the posts. Please know how impressed us mere mortals on the wanna be list are for your efforts. I followed Phil (Pilo) last year and find myself doing the same hours of cheering, logging on and checking and rooting for a successful and safe finish.

All the work, all the planning and all the effort... all the way!

Thanks!
