Gravel & trail route:
Bart keeps the lead and is making great progress, he came through the CP3 in Molina de Aragon at 20:51 last evening. He is absolutely flying!
We met Ed last night before his rest stop in Ateca, he looked fresh and strong. He is in 2nd position.
Dick Ayres is now riding the single-track trail on incredible red stone cliffs in Spanish Utah followed by pair riders Alexander and Martin.
Mimi came through CP2 in the Bardenas Reales.
Mechanical issues stopped Andrew. We are waiting for his final decision.
