Michael is now almost to TS 19.  Update on racers as soon as he gets there.  The whole country is cheering you on Michael.  Get ready for some lower altitudes but warmer weather and a slight tailwind that will increase the further east you go.  Your supporters are keeping up with you and cheering you all the way.  We don’t know how you are doing it but we know that you will.
