At 4.00pm this afternoon (9.00am “ish” depending on exactly where Robert is), Robert stopped for an hours rest having ridden through the night. It seems for this leg he’s staying at the “Iron Butt Hotel”.
He is now 1400 miles away from the checkpoint with 34 hours to go.
It will be tight for him, but he will do it, I know he will !! These damn Germans are tough S.O.B.’s
As he rides into the desert he will need to keep hydrated. In 2011 Lisa Landry pulled me to one side immediately before the start of the third leg to give me this advice “when you ride through the desert, if you are not peeing at every fuel stop, you are not drinking enough”
That advice got me through my tough last leg. I have passed the advice on to my Geramn friend ……
