Our man Joe - Day 3 of the Atacama Crossing

Stage 3 is under way in the Atacama Crossing desert race and our man Joe has just passed the second checkpoint.
July 25, Stage 3, 11:30am - At second checkpoint of the day, Ahn Byeung Sik, Korea in lead. Mark Tamminga, Canada and Joe Holland, USA, in second and third

Yesterday Joe finished 5th in stage 2 and gave up the overall lead to Canadian Mark Tamminga who is just 2 minutes and 20 seconds ahead.

If there is one thing for sure it's that Joe can withstand a fair amount of suffering and with a long 26 mile uphill leg today and Stage 5: Marcha de la Muerte (March of Death) coming up my money is still on Joe to take it all.

Check out the athlete bios and see what nationalities are represented in this years Atacama Crossing.
