Anyway, Team Buff Thermo Cool has reached the halfway point of the race, where they have a mandatory six-hour rest and get a hot meal. Impressively, Sari found a computer and managed to send this message:
“Super wet and muddy everywhere. Teammates are awesome. Tired, super sore knees but otherwise all is well.”
Buff is six-hours behind the lead teams, Seagate and Silva. They are “carrying a 2-hour penalty” because apparently one teammate lost their required race jersey somewhere along the way. With the penalty time factored in, they are in ninth place overall. There is still a long way to go, including a 65km trek along the coast, followed by a 150km mountain bike leg. Team Buff is healthy and strong and they still have a great shot at the podium. Thanks for following along and supporting Sari!
