- it's about fifteen miles away and the weather can be quite different out there, and
- the wind usually drops the later it gets, and
- some people know no fear
In the latter category was Jennifer, who remained upright but lost her chain and only managed just under 59 mph in an evil crosswind. Not in the latter category was Larry, who declined to risk Wahoo's shiny paintwork in the wind and didn't start. I am beginning to sense a theme here. Matthias made a "not-pushing" run at 48 and a bit; Fabien Canal was less cautious and did 62.07 in Altaïr 6. Just under 100 km/h chiz. All three are capable of a lot more with more experience and/or less wind.

|Fabien Canal/Altaïr 6, pushing quite a bit|
|Andrea Gallo/Taurus, pushing a lot|

CNN have a film crew in da 'hood. Russell Bridge reckons the threat of exposure on national TV has caused DHL to pull their collective finger out and get the Soup Dragon to Reno tomorrow morning. We are keeping our wossnames crossed but will only believe it when the bike passes tech inspection.
