Last Balloon Standing! Cayton-Zapart Pursue Race Leaders

And then there was one.
French competitors Eric Decellieres and Vincent Leys (Team 2) reported their safe landing to the America's Challenge Command Center. They are on a road near a small lodge on the shores of Lake Kabititikwia, west of Lake Nipigon in Ontario, Canada. They are about 100 miles (161 km) north of hte US-Canadian border. The team reports they are OK and awaiting the arrival of their crew to retrieve the balloon.
With Team 2's landing, just one balloon is still flying: the US/Polish entry of Andy Cayton and Krzysztof Zapart. At the time Team 2 landed, Cayton and Zapart were about 75 miles (120 km) behind and traveling at more than 40 mph (64.4 kph), steadily reeling in their rivals. At this rate, Team 1 should exceed Team 2's distance in less than two hours.
The Command Center will remain in operation until Team 1 has landed and the team and balloon are accounted for.
