That’s surely got to hurt after a while?
Looks like something certainly going to battle.

I looked at 0730 and assumed the attempt had not started. It'd good to see things look to be going well.

Bearing in mind the recent poor weather, today seems to be much better.

I do wonder about the possible disadvantage of shorter hours of daylight at this time of year. In particular the second night will take in some pitch dark roads where it may not be easy to keep up the same speeds as daylight riding.

Anyway a couple of days dotwatching ahead and hoping for a successful attempt on the record.
