The spectacular Monument Valley and Mexican Hat are landmark features of Craig's race through Utah.

Despite being the shortest length of time in a state, Utah promises to deliver a stunning backdrop to Craig's ride, taking in the sights of vast sandstone buttes, the largest reaching 1,000 ft (300 m) above the valley floor, in the Navajo Nation Reservation.

It's also a chance to 'cool down' from Craig's time in Arizona... to an average high of 31 degrees Celcius!

The sights continue as the race passes Mexican Hat - a famous sombrero-shaped 18 metre rock outcrop.

From here his route heads north towards Colorado's Canyons of the Ancients.
