"Yes, the weather is getting much better. We had great blue sky the last week and rode down mostly the Atlantic Coast and experienced some extraordinary roads and fantastic views.
And then down here in Western Sahara we are now confronted with sand and straight roads. They go for straight for about 2 miles, then you have a long curve and then you continue again. Western Sahara is part of Morocco however in Western Sahara some of the people believe they should be independent.
We are experiencing everything down here in Daklar, where we have a rest day. Everyone is healthy, everyone is happy and we are looking forward to the rest of the first section."
