Red Bull Romaniacs Day Three
Day 3 (from Monica)
Firstly, is anyone else going nuts watching the live tracking!! More intense than a game of soccer with blind refs ...
Today Chris was doing well for more than first half, then electrics on the bike went wrong. He said that in all his years of riding KTM he has never ever ever had a problem with electics (and I agree - so much so that when I heard that, I thought 'but there isn't any electrics...'). Luckily when it happened today he was able to be reached by service crew and got up and running again.
Then it was Africa speed all over again as he tried to catch up time on Andreas. When I spoke to him he didn't realise that (according to reports) he was still in the lead overall, so he was quite pleased. He says he wishes he can just ride at race pace all day!
So though there are no official results, from reports online and my basic maths, we think he is still 20 something minutes ahead overall heading into the last day.
Fingers are crossed!! He is enjoying it I think, apart from the issues with electrics ...
