Today, Team Steel cycled from Boulogne to Laon. It’s a 233km route. Inspite of it pouring down for the first half of the day, the participants have had an interesting and fulfilling ride. Stops along the way to fix (6) punctures were inevitable – until they bought some new tyres – but that didn’t dampen their spirits.

All of them are very grateful for the Kinetica drinks and snacks which have provided bursts of energy along the way and for the fact that they are all in the same formation as at the beginning of the Euro Man of Steel challenge.
