Was speaking to Orfanos a few weeks back (driving up to the Serres race) and he had packed a pair of street tyres for a similar stage back in Spain in, oh, '06 or '07... also packed a one-piece street bike rain suit and bulky ski gloves for the stage IIRC... and I think he was on an XR400 back then...
