"What a difference a day make..." Yesterday, Marko had some black scenarios in his toughts, but today is another day. The speed with which he overcame planes of Kansas is among the largest of all the participants.

 

Right after the descend, temperature went up but also wind escaleted. Can you guess wich direction? Yes, headwind and even some sidewind. Marko did his job and finished the hardest part of the race. In first 90 hours he’s done 2030km.

The night has his own power and we wanted to use it, so we made the crew change just outside of Durango. The sun was slowly disappearing behind the hills and Marko started his uphill part of this race, riding to the Wolf Creek Pass, over 3300m over the see. The night and the altitude made the temperature drop to 5°C. We also got some rain showers.

What can I say. Picture is not perfect due to overtaken car, but what can you do. This is it, after 10 years and after 7th RAAM crossin throu there. 

Planed or not, this year for the first time through Monument Valley during the day. Usually it was nightime due to earlier start time or higher speed. Finally Marko will have the picture of this spectacular view point. I hope he will go through as he was last November when he was here before becoming UMCA 24h World Championship winner.

 

For sure you are all waiting for the news. sorry about that, there was low internet coverage and one “don’t wanna work’ charger for my laptop. But believe me, it’s still just the beginning, will be lot’s to say. But the most important news today is....our sun Erik has a birthday!
