We served bocconcini on sliced tomatoes with fresh basil, drizzled with balsamic vinegar, at the last pit stop. Kerry promised the riders that they'd be fed well -- no kidding!
The good part: they now have a police motorcycle escort.
The not-quite-as-good part: the "heavy humidity" is now closer to rain -- but we seem to be driving towards bluer skies.
We're about 20 minutes behind schedule but this stage is all downhill so we might make it up.
Next stop: Hope!
