The first person to complete this arduous race, Jay Petervary has completed the course 84 kms ahead of the next competitor. an incredible achievement, not just for Jay but for all of those who fronted up even if they do not finish the assigned course. 1721 kms over very rough and remote terrain in just on a week.

And then there were three. Wow! What a race and what a mind battle it must be. 500 or so KMS to go and nothing is settled. This is epic. Based on history, my money is on Lael, but nothing in this race is certain, or even probable. And the potential for a disaster is huge!
