PICO DE JAVALAMBRE
Towering above the riders in the region of Aragon is CP2 and with it comes a world of adventure.
There is no mandatory parcours for this checkpoint but while there is a perfectly good paved road to the top, the terrain of choice for most riders has so far been gravel as we saw earlier with Ulrich.
THE RACE FOR SECOND
Sami, Brian and Bruno are all within 10km of each other, so second place is anyone's for now.

CROSS WINDS FOR ULRICH
At the front of the race, it's been quite a day for Ulrich as he battled wind and heat as predicted by the race organisers, David and Carlos.
It looks like Ulrich will pass CP3, Cabo de Gata, and possibly the highest of all the checkpoints, CP4, Pico Veleta. Will he sleep or press on?
