    If that's the case they could see mud and flooding.

    This is a track west of the 40/Belen and NE of Fiambala, I was heading south. Looking at the map they may well be running on this road. I took this pic in Feb.

    When I lived in Desert Center California the highes temp I remember riding in was 52.7C. It takes a very high level of motivation to ride in those temps,(and hydration!).

    Stage 10 was a rugged day for Rod. It was dust all day and extremely hot. He wore out rear tyre and completely wore out new brake pads in the front down to the metal. There was so much dust if you were behind someone you got stuck there, but he managed to come in 25th and still holds his ranking of 16th. All the Aussies did well today must be the dust : )
