Who's hanging in and who's out?
A quick check of the Primal Quest race site shows 6 teams have pulled out of the competition. Another 11 teams are Unranked. The leading teams have remained about the same.
Check the site for more news and tidbits from the route - like a racer using her undies to filter the silt from river water which was then purified for drinking. I think you can file that under "You know you're hardcore when..."
Another racer got a surprise visit from his wife and kids at a desert checkpoint. The kids probably boosted everyone's spirits.
