Does he have a device with a map, or does he know where he's going?
Back in 2007, I was in support of the Race Against Time, and they rode LEJOG in five days.
We in support, had an in-depth meeting and learned the route they were taking. I had a good appreciation of the route to start with, but it was specified which route and which junctions etc etc etc.
The riders had had an in-depth meeting too.
Do these Record Breakers have "the knowledge" about the route like our riders did, or do they have a communication device to keep them on track?
Or just a TCX on a Garmin?
I was dot-watching as he came out of Gloucester and, deliberately or otherwise, IT & the support vehicle went different ways with IT ending up behind the support as they headed north of the A40 on the A38 - IT had swung left up to the A40 & turned right to get to the A38, the support had gone right (I wondered at the time if they were going shopping as they appeared to be heading towards Tesco but the dot didn't stop) & straight across the A40.
