By the looks of the weather forecast from Makkovik to Nain the Cains Quest riders will be having a hard time of it tonight. Light snow then clearing but winds gusting up to 60 and 70 in the area with blowing snow.
The lead riders are on there way to Postville, leader is about half way there. Local teams should have a bit of an advantage being home turf, as long as machinery and human bodies stand up to the strain.
Seven teams have pulled out from Lab Ciry to HV-GB, and the race has not started yet [so to speak].
