  • I liked and I found some bits on myself

  • Askan just had a long break over 10 hours in Farmington, he was catching up to Edward in 3rd. Edward's pace/sleep has been very consistent. Askan's just started moving again. It will be interesting to see if he climb any more places or if he's running out of road to do that. Ben could definitely still challenge Kraig too.

  • 300 miles to the finish for Kraig and Ben is only 70 miles behind. Could get interesting over the next day.

  • Too late unless something goes wrong.

  • Another close one.

  • True, let's hope they get in fine and I think they have both just rested and will probably ride in without another stop?

  • Be interesting to hear from Ben, I hope someone records their arrival as usual.

  • It looks like Kraig always had it under control. Might have been able to pull out a bit more if Ben had got closer.

    It's really rare there is a late stage catch in these events. TCR 2018 is the memorable one from a racing point of view (@skinny reeling in Bjorn Leonard). TABR 2016 was dramatic but because Steffen Streich self-destructed and went the wrong way.

    Is this closer than TABR last year?

    Edit - yes it probably is, 6.5 hours was the winning margin, although ISTR it was closer than that at a couple of points.

  • TCR 2018

    I think that was more like 1000km from finish, if not a bit more.

  • Yes - but it's the latest overtake I can think of, apart from Steffen/Lael

  • Yes, last year Evan was gaining on Kraig it looked like he would pass for a while, but then he drifted back. Equally close as this year overall I'd say. I remember skinny and Sofiane in Italy Divide was fun to dotwatch, but obviously much shorter course! Wish I had been following when Mike and Kristof were competing too.
