Rob went through TS 4 in Parker, AZ, at 5:48 AM EDT. He's about 100 yards behind Gerhardt Gulewizc, who is one of the favorites to win RAAM.
As far as RAW is concerned, only two racers have come through TS 4 - Danny Wyss and Rob. Keep in mind that Wyss is a former RAAM winner and definitely a pre-race RAW favorite.
Rob had some stomach distress about 100 miles back, but we diluted his Spiz a bit, gave him some Coke and he is feeling great.
Right now we're on a slight uphill and he's doing about 19 mph. After 286 miles of racing.
The sun will be coming up in about 2.5 hours, which is always good for a mental boost, not that he needs it. He's riding like a champ.
