These strong points do not help either of them when it comes to directions. They lost their way again last night, only reaching the support station at 21h30.
They quickly made up lost time after a slow start this morning. According to Albert they carried their bikes over two mountains. Considering his frame of reference, it might only be small koppies or even speed bumps, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way, this slowed them down enough to guarantee that they will only reach the next station after dark.
Planning for tomorrow, this is what Albert and John can expect from the route: A fairly short 59 kilometer ride from Masakala to Malekhalonyane. However, the distance is a bit misleading if you look at the massive climbing section right after the 40km mark. I won't be surprised to see the riders walking/carrying their bikes up a mountain again.
