We had all our inspections today for the bikes and the vans – all passed ok! Thank you to Frank (our crew chief) for all the hard work today and making sure it all went smoothly. We’ve got a big race meeting tonight for the final instructions from RAAM HQ.
It’s all very real now we’re here and seeing all the other teams (who are all very friendly). The riders are out now on the first part of the route and warming up for tomorrow. We start at 2pm Californian time tomorrow which is very scary.
The weather here is very hot which means making sure the cyclists are slapping on the sun cream.
Check back tomorrow to hear about the start!
