News from the bivouac is Bill is at km 261 on the stage and not moving. Theoretically he has a bike with no oil or gas. I’m sure he’s fine, and just digging into the side of a dune, popping a cliff bar and enjoying the stars. There’s an outside chance that somebody will be able to bring him in, but most likely he’ll get picked up in the morning. This Race is relentless.
