Now for a flashback. This is from 2008, the last time Amy was at this spot on the course!
Amy, Tougher than HAIL! RAAM 2008
1:45PM-CDT: Crew update - Amy is still on her bike but it sounds like the many days of riding combined with hot, humid weather, nasty traffic, and the mounting time cut-off pressure is making it a very tough day for Amy and the Team Strong Heart Crew. They are currently under as much pressure as they have faced so far. The coming hours will tell if the time cut-off is achievable or not. Hang in there Amy!
12:12PM-CDT: Amy has reached TS#32 in Camdenton, MO. 82F, scattered clouds, 68F dew point, south winds at 5mph. Next is the Missouri state capitol Jefferson City TS#33.
6:54AM-CDT: Just saw a comment on FB from one of Amy's crew. "Leaving Weaubleau, Missouri and we are getting Amy to the Mississippi by 5am tomorrow!!" The Mississippi is the next time cut-off for the women soloists. Amy has to be there no later than 5AM-EDT (4AM-CDT). She's got 253 miles to go, it's going to be a challenging day!
4:30AM-CDT: Amy has gone through to TS#31 in Weaubleau, MO. She had a huge day yesterday (and into today) riding over 300 miles! Reports are she did 25 1/2 hours on the bike. At 4:30am in Weaubleau it was 68F with a 68F dew point, so it was still 100% humidity. Wind was calm.
