Up high
Up high -
At about 4000m altitude, this was our highest spot in the race to wait for our team. At the beginning of this leg, previous transition, they had estimated to arrive here after about 10 hours of trekking. So we cleaned their muddy bikes, rearranged the car, bought the plastic, had lunch, bought a thermosflask to serve the team a warm drink that broke within an hour and then arrived here , 4pm, one hour before they were due and set up.
This proved to be an extremely difficult part of the race though and it took them 19h! Poor guys! This also meant that the support team could not sleep and we alternated staying awake to be there for them once the got ofthe mountain. At day-break I spotted their lights.
