Runner company all stage (Andrei from Omsk).
We decided to change yesterdays planned 56 km. stage into a 30
km.(yesterday) and a 26km.(today).
This in order to let Alexander get a relative easy start after the injury.
Still we will from tomorrow have to begin running the usual stages -
starting with a 48km., and we very much hope Alexander can make the
Longer down the road we must increase our average distance a bit in order
to reach Japan and Australia in time.
The extra km's will be made by introducing a "monster stage" ;-) of 85 -
100km. every 7 to 10 days; beginning with a 91km. from Irkutsk to Lake
The "monster" in it is mostly the road condition - the distance itself
should'nt impress experiensed ultrarunners, but with the roads after
Irkutsk supposedly beeing more directions than roads, it will be a
logistical and a physical challenge.
And that's what we want :-)
The road conditions, or lack of..., we got confirmed when we today just
after Alexanders finish met 4 american motorbikers that has startet out
from Shanghai - China, in direction Munic, Germany(see pictures).
Quite an effort keeping their machines going on the extreme roads!!
Our accomodation is at a lakeside; which is quite smelly(but so are we),
however it has a high salt concentration which keeps the mosquitoes away.
And that is wellcome as there are now millions of them!
