Simon Oberrauner (AUT2), currently 283km to goal and in ninth place, said: 'To reach Monaco, we will need some luck. It’s going to be hard. It is going to be a better flying day tomorrow. Not out of the world but it will be really hard. My body is functioning at about 70%. My legs and feet are ok but I’m feeling tired. Getting out of bed is really hard. I have to drink tea, coffee and it takes me half an hour to get warm and start walking.' He is also still battling ear and throat pain that have beset his race. But he remains upbeat: 'I’m still positive about the race and the adventure. Every day is still a blessing. I love the race. I can still push. I’m still okay.. I just want to be there until end.'
