Day 6- Elkford to Blairmore

It's hard to believe that we are already on Day 6! One more to go! Blaine and Ted did great on yesterday's leg, coming in at 7 hours, 40 minutes. They actually beat us to camp by about 15 minutes!

Today's stage to Blairmore is 102.4 km with 2,998 m of climbing.

Our friends from Switzerland sadly had to pull out of the race yesterday due to injury. It's heartbreaking to hear the stories, everyone that is here has worked so hard and sacrificed so much. Sybil and Rodney have become a regular fixture at our camp, we are cheering for Rodney's partner Martin who has been linked up with an Australian team to continue on.

Some pictures from this morning's start:
