- On this penultimate day of riding, I was praying for no more mechanicals (busted cables or tires). But you can never be absolutely sure. Take nothing for granted. For example, this morning I saw Eric Hallam run (on foot) into a water stop. His FSA left crank had cracked all the way through on his Cervelo. One of the crew lent him his bike.
- We're finally crossed over into Eastern time. This means we lose another hour's worth of sleep tonight. However, tomorrow is the last day of the Elite Southern Transcontinental. One more day of getting up at 5:40am.
