We are analyzing the MPH stats and delivering this info to Michael as it is hard to tell how he is doing as everyone is sleeping at different times, some riders are far ahead and far behind. This simple stat gives him a time station stat on his comparative speed. Ben Popp is the only American rider in front of him and to me this is a good goal for him – to be the #1 American rider. Talking with Dave last night, he said when he was in the jeep they spotted a bike up ahead and Mike motioned to him to come along side and when he did he said “Let’s catch that guy”. Dave said Michael’s demeanor changed, his cadence increased and off he went. I keep thinking the goal is to finish but to Michael, this is clearly a race. How awesome is that!?
