While we wait for the leaders to arrive after the fourth and gruelling 84.3km stage of this years MDS an update on other matters.
So far this year there have been 101 drop outs after the first three stages of MDS.
Stage 1 – 18 drops
Stage 2 – 56 drops including previous MDS winner Laurence Klein
Stage 3 – 27 drops including Federica Boifava
Meghan Arbogast had a tough stage 3 yesterday. The 55 year old American who was in seventh place after Stage 2 must have had a terrible time out there dropping four places to finish eleventh on the woman’s leader board. Her stage time of 6:19 compared to leader Sedykh’s 3:49 tells the story.
Keep watching out for Stage 4 results.
