The gap between Bjorn and James is down to approximately an hour after checkpoint 3.

Further back in the pack, Andrew Waddington appears to be heading to Ovaro.

A road got banned mid-race, my mates scratched due to actually fearing for their lives because of some of the driving. If the TCR is to continue in this format I think they're going to have to address these kind of things as best they can.

Will do the other checkpoint write ups when I get chance, not had much free time on the computer recently!

James Hayden's account of riding on the stretch of road which was banned sounded pretty frightening.

I saw a few riders post on Facebook about scratching due to fearing for their lives after nearly being hit (and you can't blame them either).
