Mile 1394.8 Ulysses, KS
Michael and the crew continue to regain valuable lost time from the desert nightmare. The next cutoff is the Mississippi River June 20, 3:00 pm (CST). Michael is riding full force and in good spirits. He is hammering out the miles. Yesterday he rode 263.1 miles – knocking off the last of the Rockies. The High prairies welcome Michael with bellowing winds but he was able to make our goal. Today Michael will ride 279.5, leaving just 200 to make the cutoff. He was rewarded last night with his longest sleep of the race – a whopping 3 hours. It was a welcome treat.
