Damian has called us at midday to let us know that they are half way there with only 1500 miles to go.

He has just finnished nearly 8 hours on the bike and will get 6 hours rest before he goes again.

If you are trying to track Damian we have found it easier to use the RAAM (Race Across America) web site.

The Strategic Lions are currently in the lead but behind the record.

We are waiting for the first action shots.

Up and assembling bike before dawn this am. Issues with rooms meant that team B had a night in the RV. Nice and new though and just run in at 83k miles, not like the 500k one we had last year! Good night apart from rummaging around in the dark looking for a bleeping smoke detector with a low battery. 20 second intervals between bleeps: I counted it a hundred times! 
Everyone gelling as a team and we are almost looking forward to our official inspection in a few hour's time. 
A real sense of excitement and positive tension is building. The team's organisation is nothing short of superb, every single person stepping up; there has to be a special mention though for the architects Chief Danisz and Megamind Wingo Watson.
