After another hot, dry dusty day of nearly 250km, the leaderboard has remained remarkably unchanged.
Colin Beck has increased his lead ahead of Jamie Emery with Patrick Subarski in third place.
Everyone who set out returned safely, one or two scrapes and spills with a mechanical misperformance but many excited stories to tell.
Tomorrow, 110km with more testing gradients and route instructions to follow....
And now, sleep!
