It is 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, and he is about 150 kilometers into the bike. We will stop for solid food around midnight and then sleep at 3:00 a.m. He just flew by and said his feet were toasty now.
Michael G. from Germany has just joined the fray as the first of the decairon competitors onto the bike course. I believe his swim time was under fourteen (14) hours.
