Elephants 🐘 on Stools?
Ok! So maybe I wasn’t clearly understanding. Nope, I heard right, partially. Justin lost his elephant stool on his rear cylinder intake valve this morning and the valve cover kept slamming up and down. So, they were in search of a hardware store today on the route to get…. not an elephant on a stool (could you imagine if I was sent—crayons would have been a requirement), but just a simple hose clamp to fix it.
Jared’s oil tank came apart at the bottom where it was soldered so he had to keep pumping oil in it and adding oil to it to get in to the finish tonight. He changed out oil tanks this evening.
They all completed routine maintenance and were set for the night. Steve helped a few others time some mags and a few other odds and ends.
Today’s scenery’s was amazing again for riders and support crew routes.
Hopefully there won’t be any more elephant incidents.
Tomorrow is a big day. Riders go from Spokane Valley, WA to The Dalles, OR. They have 120 miles between gas stops, so they’ll all need gas tomorrow. They will ride 314 miles in all.
