Point of clarification

Layer Cake winery sent all the sponcers 6 bottles of wine, not Saucelito Canyon Vineyard. For us to send that many free bottles would probably be last years profit. Thank you Layer Cake and Go Ned.

Manfully done lad. Jolly good show.

Seriously, it has been a pleasure to watch your epic ride from my frozen porch.

We all cheered "GO NED, GO!!!....and by god you did! What a great adventure to follow. I am sure you have motivated many to get up and chase something, anything, that we are passionate about and we can't thank you enough.

Congratulations on your accomplishment!

I raise my glass to you fine sir!

Thumb Congratulations Ned!!!

This is only my second 'F5 Dakar' and was one of the best motor sport racing experiences I've had.

Ned - you're a hero for taking the risk to follow a dream and seeing it through so beautifully!

Ned's friends - thanks for you help with bike prep, training rides and the friendships that mean so much to him.

F5 Crew - continues to amaze just how 'real' the Dakar experience can be behind a keyboard. Thanks to all of you for your contributions, antidotes, humor and support for Ned's effort.

Cheers from Calgary, Alberta....

I'm watching the event on TV but I haven't seen him yet, I'll carry on watching it just in case!

Great race!
