I was seeing that. And Lalia is pulling ahead of him. I've been watching both all along and he was ahead for a good deal of the past stages.

He dropped a lot at the beginning, made some time, then is loosing time again.

Anyone know how hot it is out there today?

No matter his pace, Geaux Ned!

edit: 96th.

Bring it in, Ned!
But OVERALL, it still shows him as 44th. So everyone must be having the same issues?

I like to think he's just sticking to the plan

P.S. it's a good thing tomorrow is a rest day. I need to get some work done on fairings

These dunes are hell on the wrist. My wrist certainly hurts from F5'ing through the dunes. Imagine how much stress it must be on the joint to actually ride them.

+1, I think he's just being uber-tentative in the sand and dunes. The times between 7, 8, 9 & 10 will be no better if this is the case(those are the biggest, softest dunes and the direction they are goign throughthem is the more difficult that I can tell), but as long as they are consistent, who cares?

He needs his wrist and placing means nothing to him, just finishing...this is only one stage...

***fingers crossed***

In the phone calls he mentioned the bike lacking power in the soft stuff...and as I understand it, there's some big bad dunes out there today. He'll make it....just looks like it's slowing him down a little....can hardly wait to hear what he has to say though!

Go Ned Go!!

Nope.

But I think he doesn't needed it really. My bet he's riding to circumstances.

I agree. Riding his own ride, listening to tim's voice in his head teaching him about riding dunes.

Here's hoping Ned stays safe as the cars start to pass him...also hoping he gets in before trucks catch up...
I would NOT wanna be on a bike with a Kamaz screaming up behind me!!



Go Ned - Smooth Is FAST
