We all started the day a bit sad. Turia and Michael unfortunately had to leave us and go back home. This was the last day together. The 60 minutes crew was also with us to film part of this amazing and inspiring ride of Turia. The weather forecast was not great but nobody really cared about it, we were all thinking about the remaining part of the ride without this wonderful couple that was able to give motivation to everybody in any single day. I will personally remember for ever the lovely smile of Turia which would never give up to any obstacle. And Michael is just such a beautiful person, always smiling, supporting everybody else on the ride even when he was struggling himself on the bicycle.
Life goes on and the rain started dominating most of the day, sometime in a torrential form. These are the days when we create an even bigger bond, the days where we talk about our final goal, yes reaching Uluru but mostly about fundraising for Variety, the children’s charity.
And once we reached the ultimate peak, even under the rain, we stopped to immortalize another great achievement.
