Mongol Derby Leaderboard - Day 2

In stark contrast to day 1 day 2 of the 2014 Derby has been pretty wet. With the rain has also come a fair share of mud which has done a decent job of slowing the riders down.

Sam Jones braved the predicted rain last night to forge ahead from HS4 and camp on the steppe. The gamble definitely paid off until she dropped her Spot Tracker and had to wait to be reunited with it. While waiting she was overtaken by 12 riders and took up a one hour penalty for the assistance in retrieving the tracker.
