Thanks for pointing out the recent addition of the 12th May. I've updated the charts accordingly.

The latest graph confirms what I've suspected for a while; with my dubious red/green vision, Kurt and Miles are exactly the same colour :(

Could we annex that nice yellow from the hapless IronOx?

Day 137: Steve passes 20,000 miles on his north-south Flatlanders 600 trial run. Kurt repeats his Little Rock routine with a break for some heavy rain. Miles is up and down the bay a few times for 237 miles.

Nothing showing on the UMCA for Saturday (201 miles), then spotted the first half of his A&S last weekend (186 miles) is missing too.  Anyone know the story?  Doesn't seem at all like Steve to miss an upload cutoff.

Day 138: Kurt is nothing if not consistent, clocking up 241 miles back and forth along the Arkansas river. Miles does the same along the bay for 230 miles. Steve rides 106 miles back home from Essex.

Day 139: As the end of May approaches and Kurt, Steve and Miles clock up 228, 205 and 140 miles respectively, we begin the most challenging period of the OYTT. The first of the previous records, starting with Billie Fleming's 1938 total of 29,604 miles beckons for Kurt. Tommy was beginning to increase his daily milage beyond his average of 206 miles per day. Something Steve will have to do too if he is to have  chance beating Tommy in 2015. Days will get longer, sleep will become rarer.

Looking at the 'Overall' column, the difference in consistency between Steve (up to the ankle break) & Kurt as opposed to Miles is really striking.

Don't know what we can/should deduce from that.

Well, to quote Graeme Obree – time trials are won not by going fast but by not going slow.

At the scale of a year-long event, I'd say the same applies to time on the bike.

Day 141: A shorter day for Kurt and a longer one for Steve give them both 151 miles towards their annual totals. Miles does 118 along the bay as he succumbs to a chest infection.

Day 142: 237 miles along his familiar Arkansas river trails for Kurt. Steve rides a 161 mile route from MK to Essex in preparation for the weekend's Flatlands 600. Miles manages 11 miles so he and his bike can be made good.

Day 143: Steve does the first two thirds of his 600 PBP qualifier, the Flatlands, in a repeat of the previous weekend's effort. Kurt continues his steady progress along the side of the Arkansas river for 235 miles. Miles does 120 along the bay.

Day 146: Miles' respiratory problems take a turn for the worse – diagnosed at hospital with a partially collapsed lung. He still managed 32 miles though. Kurt continues his now usual trip up and down the Arkansas river trail (202 miles). Steve does a 151 mile multi-Gibbon day.

Day 147: No riding for Miles as he is treated for his collapsed lung. Kurt increases his daily distance to 250 miles along his usual route. Steve does a 216 mile loop to the fens similar to that before the collision.

By eye, it looks like Steve is at the point where his pessimistic schedule will not see him reach Tommy's benchmark.  If I'm right, it means each day he does less than this the further he moves towards needing to achieve his optimistic schedule.  I suspect he can still do it, if he remains injury free, but it will be Herculean.

Day 150: Following his lung problems, Miles announces his retirement from his first OYTT challenge. He will restart on the 18th June. Meanwhile Kurt and Steve put in 210 and 218 miles respectively. By this time in 1939, Tommy had found sponsorship from Raleigh and a professional manager. His daily mile total started increasing significantly.

Your eye serves you well, his lower schedule now falls just short and he's not up to that schedule yet so slipping further daily.

Day 151: Local flooding forces Kurt to accumulate 242 miles by riding the same strip of the Arkansas river road 46 times (23x each way). He's now less than a week away from overtaking the women's OYTT record. Steve does a 228 mile Fenland loop taking his annual average daily distance back above 150 miles.
