Apologies for the radio silence on the site and blog front. Unfortunately the internet/3G network in the desert was intermittent. – We hope you all managed to get in on all the action through Twitter.
Lots of pictures and videos were taken on camera which unfortunately could not be uploaded in real time.So… now we are back in the hotel room and rested. Let’s run through this race again.
