A Flash Flood and Some Electrical Problems

Simon PaveyDon and Natalie are still cheering on Don’s team mate, Simon, who is doing very well despite the fact there is an electrical issue with his bike that is affecting his road book.

Simon has not been able to properly use the road book these past four days and has had to stop and manually scroll it forward so that he can see where he is supposed to go.

Today he had to deal with flash flooding that ultimately lead to cancellation of a portion of the stage he was riding. . Simon and the support team have just crossed the Andes into Chile. They are in good spirits and they are looking forward to completion of the rally!

At the time of writing, Simon has just passed Point 4 of Stage 12. Most of the morning, it has been downhill, he has to refuel shortly before heading back up into the mountains.
