Firstly, huge respect to you and all the teams participating in the Round Ireland 2013.

I am hooked by your daily reports, and wonder how you can find time and energy to write them when mentally and physically exhausted, especially in the conditions you describe.

Wishing you all good luck and safe passage for the remaining legs.

Always thought those long legs down the top and west were gonna hurt! I'd have stopped at Galway (or Kinvara if you want a crazy Irish welcome!) to split the journey up.

What happens now that everyone's all spread about? This is where a couple of rest days would have been handy to let people catch up...
(Hinting for a future year in case I'm daft enough to do it!!)

Adding my thanks also Paul for the great write-ups. Really interesting. The West is always testing and perhaps the long legs are demanding too much. Hope everyone is ok and respect to all.
