The race director of that is in this Australian one. I think Donncha Cuttriss has done it too.

That's all they've had over there the last 2 days


Jesse Carlson and durian Rider have pulled out.

Ryan Flynn (Rhino) is complaining about his knee so he won't be hanging on forUchida longer I'd say.

Cycling Maven seems in good form other than a bit of sunwind burn

Donnacha Cutriss could do well he's certainly pushing it up the front end.

Fair play to them all the clips I've seen the weather looks rough.

That's all they ever get. Makes some strong riders though.

Rhino is riding with one leg unclipped for some passages.
A polish girl has blown out a knee and she pulled out 6 hours ago.
Maven is still in there, but he is starting to complain of knee and little toe issues.

Eoin and Donncha are doing really well.

Durianrider is now making videos from the Van.
Abdullah from The Glucose Network is Vlogging from his Jeep, which looks like a tough month for him, making his documentary.

YouTube comments are usually a horrid place and those under his latest videos are no different but I guess that what happens when you constantly post clickbait. He's getting called out for not following through on his own HTFU mantra.

Glad to see Cycling Maven still going. His mental toughness is showing through.

Donncha/Eoin seem to be moving along well too which is great.

A quick clip of Donncha Cuttriss, who is a "great laugh" apparently. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAYUbdoT7GQ
Maven and Durianrider in there too.

Donncha currently 7th overall, 300km behind Kristof.
Eoin is still 200km from the border.
Rhino and Maven are still trucking, they're 200km behind Eoin.

Donnacha Cuttriss is going well. This is beyond epic.
Just watched Maven's last post, and I began to feel sore and dehydrated just looking at them. They've had a headwind for days.

The Facebook page is saying Donnacha has retired from the race. Sad to see that. Real gentleman and sportsman.

Ah that's a shame, but 2000 km in 5 days is savage.
