Weird day; started in rain that just got harder until we were absolutely soaked through and then eventually it eased off. A shorter day than many recently so I’d hoped for a decent run, even hoping for somewhere around 8 hours – in the end we did 9:20 and it was tough going in the rain first thing and the hills throughout. It hasn’t gone unnoticed that the weather turned wet as my parents arrived… They did great again today – we really couldn’t do this without our crews; just wish they’d left the British weather at home, though at least it’s not a heatwave again!
Some of the roads were very pretty, along a river or through a wooded section, some not so pretty.
We had a great dinner at a Mexican restaurant opposite the hotel with Will Campbell who was involved in some of the Trans-ams of the 1990s, thanks for dinner, and the stories, Will!
Only 3 days to go now, the finish is nearly here!!!
