They just passed Havasu! What does that leave, about a 100 miles? The race is ON with 13 hours to go! I suspect they can make good time below Surprise Canyon, but you know they will be spent by then.

Go Team!

Lava and a looooong night. I am really pulling for them but given their hiccup and where they are now they’re going to need a miracle.

It looks like their speeds are still ~8mph. Part of the slowdown is probably getting on the low tide. They should probably catch the previous days tide in a few hours.

Not to be a dick but the tide is on the ocean and the grand has high and low flows and it’s not going to make enough difference to help. Having done 40 trips down there and most of them to the lake when you get down there it doesn’t matter much.

It sounds precisely like youíre trying to be a dick. But agreed it probably wonít make a huge difference. Maybe 1/2 mph at best.

Alas it is probably not to be. 10pm MST and they are about 10 miles behind the pace (Fern Glen vs Lava)
