Yesterday we were just checking the bike, this morning the bike needed a bit more to it. The derailler cage wasn't in its original position anymore. Thomas managed to get everything working again, and that was really a job well done! Then it was time for the riders meeting again at 11.00 h. The morning runs had varying wind conditions. Alan had the highest wind speed until now. After the meeting we went to some more shops. We found new places for groceries, materials and shopping. Back to the hotel for lunch, the last hand on the bike repairs, and some swimming. Now we are having a bit of rest before the entire circus of the evening runs will start.
