We all aree anxious, but it looks like he is still on the plan. It's why I'm now saying Way to Finish rather than Way to go. The plan.

In before the snowball!

I believe he got there about 4:30 local time; plenty of time to take care of the bike, clean up, eat well, and get a good nights sleep.

Keep it up Ned!

Sounds great!

I think tomorrow is the 'dune stage' they spent so much time on in the 'roadbook' video....are you thinking that as well?


Go Ned Go!!!

Another nice thing; he's done with all the really long stages. Tomorrow and the next day are significantly shorter than the last few, and the final day is mostly liason...

Yes, I think you're right. Doesn't sound like he's having many issues with dunes, and tomorrow includes that looooong stretch right on the beach! That will be friggin awesome! (and easier on his wrist I hope.)
