It's on

We are just coming into the first night shift of the race, a slightly rocky start with a missed exchange left Chris and Jamie on the road (Chris especially) on the road a little longer than planned but the team pulled together and the first exchange was Chris and Jamie at lake henshaw (for those who have been bored to death already we have broken the team into two pairs of two, Chris and Jamie and Craig and danno). One pair will ride either a 4 or 6 hour shift and within that shift each rider will aim to ride 15 minutes on with the other rider in a "follow vehicle" it's tough going on the crew logistically but is widely accepted to be the fastest way across). 

Anyway back to lake henshaw,  

this is just before the "glass elevator descent taking us down to the desert floor (below sea level)  

danno brushed the glass elevator aside leaving Craig to smash it through the scorching desert before settling into. regular exchange pattern
