Settle down fellas. The boy's in the middle of a race, sans internet access. You can catch all the race news, results, and photos at this website: www.lhexagonal.com

They are doing well. Team SA is in second spot behind Dolphin. Dolphin has Jongewaard and Taberlay so they are half Australian!

Stage 5 was won by Lachlan Norris.

As at stage 5:

Dan McConnell is 4th on GC, Norris is 6th, Taberlay 7th, Jongewaard 8th, Winny in 11th, Dylan Cooper in 20th.

Sorry mate, just the french site. Click on the link that says "Tous les resultates and photos" and you'll be able to get the results for each stage. Lots of photos of D-Mac on the podium, Norris winning the stage, and a few of Winnie.

Latest update from Chris...Last night featured a unique under lights team pursuit format style of
racing over a sketchy obstacle course of multiple logs, dirt mounds and gravel pits. With the boys pumped for the $500 euro cash prize we advanced into the final against fellow hitters Team Dolphin, a team half aussie anyway with Taberlay and Jongewaard. With the final at 10.30pm and the lighting very sketchy there was potential for accidents to happen. Unfortunately D-Mac went down quite hard, enough to stop the race midway, with the final result deciding us as both joint winners for the stage.

Rest day on Thursday then we have two more XC stages left after tomorrow then onto the final
time trial in Paris on sunday. Currently I am sitting 11th on the GC and hopefully I can turn that into a top ten by the end of the week.
