Michael just came through TS12 in 10th position – averaging 15.23 mph between TS11 and TS 12. Good news is he is now in 10th place, but Franz Preihs is 2 minutes behind him. The three riders in front of him are 6 minutes away, 13 minutes away and 48 minutes away. No word from the road crew and cell phone coverage is still pretty much non-existent.
I was able to talk with a SPA in Pagosa Springs and got them complimentary hot showers tomorrow when they come through. This will be great for those in the RV who will be able to stop. The simple things in life start to become more appreciated when you are 3 days into a 10+ road trip.
