Wednesday 22 June – Missouri causing all sorts of headaches with route changes and the “Go-for” vehicle having to make up for lost time spent getting mechanical repairs to Dan’s Planet X bike – repairs all sorted now though. How much of a difference will the rejuvenated Planet X make? TBC but expectations are high!
Time Station 32: Camdenton, Missouri 1,821.4 miles so far: 1,168.1 miles to go. Long blinks getting longer but the boys are smashing it!!
Tuesday 21 June – Kansas. It’s now day 4 so we have had 3 nights on the road. The nights are the toughest because you always have to have a rider in the headlights of a follow vehicle and then another vehicle which leapfrogs the rider with the next rider and his bike in tow ready to swap in 20 minutes later. We are heading to time station 3. Blythe, Rob and Brian on the road, Anthony and Dan resting after a pretty intense first 9 hours First rider exchange – tick!
