So do I.

There is a technical problem with yesterday's Strava uploads for Kurt and William that has prevented me from processing them (unrelated I think to the vehicle transfer being included in Kurt's track). I am looking into it, but have a day job to get out of the way first.

Day 70: Steve claims to have a "rest day" closer to home but still manages almost 200 miles. Kurt had a tough day with a Mississippi headwind, problems with one of his GPS, a broken brake cable and a visit from the puncture fairy. His final leg was on home ground back in Arkansas giving him 176 miles for the day.

Day 71: The fourth day in a row in which Steve has ridden further than Kurt slowly closing the gap between them. Steve rides around 220 miles from MK to Hull in good weather. Kurt faces 170 miles of rain around Little Rock, AR.

Day 72: Another solid 214 miles for Steve heading back from Hull to MK. More rain for Kurt and then GPS problems prevent some of his ride from being uploaded and to cap it all, problems with his light bracket cut short his evening riding. The impact of "only" a recorded 58 mile day on his progress shows how vulnerable both riders are to even a small interruption.

Is it time to loose Mr. IronOx from these snapshots.  The images on replies  Day 70 and Day 71 are much better, except you've gone a bit too far and cut Tommy out.

I really enjoy these daily commentaries.   :thumbsup:

IronOx rarely features in the graphics now (he's in green if he appears at all). The solid grey line is Tommy; the dashed blue line is Kurt's pre-ride published schedule. I've been trying to vary the scale and emphasis of the daily snapshots a bit to keep some interest. And the interactive version allows you to select / deselect the riders as you see fit. Personally I think it is interesting to at least keep William's rides recorded as his total, currently at 1,747 miles, helps to give a sense of scale to the event. This is probably further than most of us have ridden so far, yet he's way way off the bottom of the chart.

Tommy's total by March 14th is still behind Kurt and Steve's by around 3000 miles. The fact that he came from behind to accumulate 75,000 miles which would, at current pace, beat them both shows that it is all still to play for.

Fantastic visual Jo, it really gives an overall feel as to how the whole thing is unfolding. Looking at Steve's chart, there's that very slight downwards trend at the beginning of March, where there was a feeling of needing to up the miles, "will he, won't he" etc..and then we see, sure enough, a gentle lift to maintain the average. And now he's still just hovering above the top tier of his projections. Thanks for doing it all.

Day 73: Steve rides 107 miles into a biting NE wind and then another 107 back home again keeping up his recent March average of over 210 miles per day. Kurt has another shorter day to make way for other domestic business. It looks like we are seeing a shift in the trend of both riders as riding conditions change.

Looking at the movement patterns of the riders (Steve red, Kurt blue, William Green; horizontal axis 24 hours with 6am, midday and 6pm marked; days stacked vertically with most recent at the bottom), it is clear Steve is getting faster. His rides have been increasing in length but, with a couple of notable exceptions, he is still spending about the same time on the bike.

Jo - do you 'correct' the Strava data to match the official HAMR spreadsheet, or just work with the original Strava track logs?

Echoing other posts, I am enjoying your daily updates.
