This morning all cars drove back to the finish line of yesterday. At the prestage meeting Laure asked us to thing about some important decisions. At stage 46 there seemed to be some problems with accommodation. It seemed that the motel is booked up. Laure asked us to think about a change of the length of stage 46 and 47. It could be changed from a short and long stage to two stages equal lengths. This needs a democratic voting since Laure had concluded that at stage 28. But now there is the big question. Who is allowed to vote? Are all runners or only the runners which are on the road or only the runners left in the ranking allowed to vote? So now the democracy started to get into trouble. What is a fair conclusion? A pro for all runners is that all runners on the course do the decision. A Contra is that stage runners and runners not in the ranking are not forced to run every day. There are some dropped out runners trying to run every day, but also some which are not. So it would be fair to say only the runners on the road are allowed to vote. But you do not know that before the morning of the stage. If only the ranking runners do the decision the other runners are unprivileged. Also a ranking runner could do a vote. And when the decision takes place he already is out of the race. So there are many pro and contras and it will be impossible to make it fair for everybody. Maybe this is a reason why some democracy has so much bureaucratic. Well, Laure gave us a lot to think about. But the decision about the start time of tomorrow was done now. It was at 5am. The reason was the long stage above 80 kilometers and the high temperatures.

After all the things we have to think of and important decisions there was also a start. Today there was no way to get lost. It was 76 kilometers only straight. It was always an up and down as yesterday. There were more dried river beds and there were trees and bushes again. AT the morning every body started in walking speed. I did not wait long before I started to jog slowly. Today the trucks are very annoying. Most time they passed with high speed. WE always get a punch of the air and had to be careful it did not pull away our legs. As I heard at the evening Makoto was not so lucky. Markus could avoid the car. But Makoto was hit by the mirror at his shoulder about five kilometers before the end. AS Markus said the driver was a bit overextended. A truck obliged and the runner was at the shoulder. So she did not now what to do. To stay in lane was to demanding. Instead she started to wobble and hit Makoto. After the police recorded the incident he continued. Also Italo and Patrick ran mainly together today. They changed position every 500m. So, both of them had to fight against the wind in the same way and give wind protection. It seemed the fight for the place was resolved for the beginning. Patrick got enough time in advance and Italo got on place three already.

The finish was placed at the University of Buffalo. Right now there were semester holidays and we could stay at the rooms of the students. For us it was more than enough, but for the students the rooms are not very luxury. To get to the internet we had to go to the lobby. There was also a big flat screen TV. We can watch the news. At 5pm there was really the report at the Oklahoma Newschannel 4 about the TransAm. We did not stay there for a long time when a woman from the newspaper arrived. She wanted to make an interview with Patrick, Italo, Peter and me. Just after the news there was the next reporter. He also wanted to make an interview with us. Today you almost did not find time to do your own work. I was hoping I can update all my stuff, but that was not the case.
