Still no news from the riders for the second day in a row. The only good news to report is that the Rider Progress table shows them checking in yesterday at the Slaapkranz Support Station at 18h30 and checking out of today's lunchtime stop at Moordenaarspoort. From the personal tracker site, it looks like they reached the support station already.
So far, they have traveled almost 700km in the last 8 days, climbing approximately 14km. If this sounds much like another big South African mountain bike race (Cape Epic), remember that this is only about a third of the way of the Freedom Trail!
