The talk of the town is the tussle between the top three men, but there is also an exciting battle for the womens overall. Rachel is 113 points up on Sabrina and 166 on Tracy so it's still a three way fight. Rachel admitted that she hasn't yet done the "math" so isn't quite sure what position is needed for the overall.

Finally the behemoth that is the MS Intense pit is complete. Apparently if you laid all the steel poles end to end they would form a line to the moon and back.
