The past few days have seen the riders starting to arrive at Diemersfontein "fast and furiously" relatively speaking. And yesterday it was the turn of the only surviving lady, Dawn bell, to arrive in a time of 21 days, 9 hours and 35 minutes. This was outside of the ladies' record, but nevertheless a great ride after having been behind the 26 day race schedule early in the race due to some technical and health issues that her husband Dave ran into.
The 1st 5 mens race positions are settled, being Martin Dreyer, Alex Harris, Graham Bird, Trevor Ball and Mike Woolnough.
As at last night, 13 of the 28 riders still in the race had arrived at Diemersfontein.
