A day of firsts

Italians Federico Damiani and Andrea Galanti take the crown as the first pair to cross the line in Sidi Rabat. They were second to The Lechugas for the whole race but as is the case with ultra-distance events, attrition is a huge factor in the results.

Second place went to Brits Mitchell Jones and Scott Cornish and third place to Germans Marc Lehmann and Alexander Bethge, the latter who arrived at around 10:00 local time.

Jenny is a rider with grit and determination running through her veins. She got to Sidi Rabat just after midday local time. Andrea Seiermann is pushing through her wake and will be at the finish line within a couple of hours.

Twelve women started AMR2020 but just five remain. Barring any disasters, we'll have a podium later today!
