    Ha ha - not mine, Mxmum can take the credit for that, he is my daughters boyfriend of 4 years or so, but he is like a son to us.:clap

    With the way the trackers update/jump I can't tell for sure but it looks to me as if Speedy's breaking trail with Sam & Coma right behind and running together, or essentially so, and PAU and Kuba right behind them. They've been U/W for 1h27m so CP1 should be coming up shortly though I can't see any spot that looks more likely than others, even at max zoom.

    He's still going well, expected to get a third or fourth today, but to keep the overall lead and initiative - sensible riding and a reliable machine just could see him home on this one :clap:clap

    There's a road crossing coming up, maybe PC1 and a refuel?

    Or even 5 or 6 with Helder coming through, but should still keep the overall lead - better for tomorrow if it's 5 or 6 :clap:clap

    Didn't expect it to be so close to CP2.
