I spoke to Rainer a few minutes ago. They are all devastated, and still in shock.
The whole team is pulling out and traveling home slowly home today once arrangements for Gary have been finalized. Wish we could be there to help.
Rainer said someone measured 58 degrees out there yesterday. It was very tough and very, very hot.
A minute silence was held at the briefing. The race is shortened by 100km today. 39 degrees expect at Alex Bay. I can't help but wonder if this was the right decision...
I think many will be riding on for Gary, people close to him have said that is what he would have wanted.
Wishing a safe day for those who are still riding, and traveling mercies for those going home.
