Did we do the bit where someone asks: Anyone else on here riding #AMR2023?
Are you doing it?
ISTR you said you were.
EDIT Just seen you on the start list:
Not many other familiar names. Torsten, that's about it for me. Who are the (other) favourites?
I had a quick scan but don't really know many. James isn't riding, neither is Emma Pooley. Chris Hall has done some 24hrs and is in a few of Francis Cade's videos, Ed Wolstenholme I know (he's probably laughing his arse off at the thought of me riding off-road), Jeff Kerkove is a bit of a hitter from the US gravel and MTB scene I think, Mattia de Marchi has done a bunch of stuff (was he a pro roadie once? Looks it: https://www.procyclingstats.com/rider/mattia-de-marchi), Richard Gate rings a bell - maybe a HT550 rider or maybe we've crossed paths before?, didn't Richard Germperle get himself up into the top 10 in the last TCR (at least before cracking)? Sam Thomas has done AMR before, I know from a couple of TCRs and went further than anyone in @skinny Spirit of Girona (I wonder if he's packing spare tubes this time?), Wendy Ellis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCsy08i0muo
) is usually writing race reports but must be doing some riding too (I should pay more attention), the Lechuga dude from the USA I think raced with his missus last time...
OK - a few names to watch. I had heard of Ed Wolstenholme and Richard Gate. You are right, Robin Gemperle led the TCR last year at some point, but I was too focused on survival to notice what was happening at the front.
Currently covered in K-tape and about to visit the dentist for the 30th time so thanks, I'll need all the luck I can get! :D
Mattia de Marchi

To not be confused with his cousin Alessandro who rides for Jayco.
Nothing like a last minute route change.
2of7, 3of7 and the FULL route need to be updated.
Your change or Nelson's?
It's fixed route. Nelson had feedback from someone who rode the course I think so pushed a few new files out. Of course that means I have to update like 5 locations and my cheatsheet. I've not packed yet...
Good luck hippy.
Reports on twitter of the hotel running out of food for breakfast...
Let’s hope @hippy got there early. He’ll be even grumpier if he’s not had breakfast.
Good reasons to not stay at the event hotel
