The course was a long one today. The special was 436km but the riders had to ride over 100km to get to the start of it and then another 40 to get back to the bivouac. Rick took one fall that broke the foot peg on his bike (not to mention bent his handlebars) which meant he had to spend the entire 8+ hours sitting on his bike seat. Which doesn’t sound too bad right??? Well it is extremely tough. And he’s extremely sore. But at the end of the day, he finished relatively unharmed and exhausted. He’s spending the rest of the evening preparing his road book for tomorrow and getting lots of rest. Tomorrow is a stage going from Catamarca to Tinogasta. Good luck, we all know you can do it!!!!!
