Since you are washing bikes, pretty good at it by now I would guess, you might check with Despres and Goncalves. Theirs looked in need of a little soap and water.

Maybe you can get the Fox Sports Chile anchorwoman (Alina Moine) to wash the bike?

Tried to get a pick of Despres and his muddy bike at the bivouac but he must have "cleaned up" on the liasson.

So it's more than just a conspiracy theory among some F5ers?

Because of a reminder from Deadly99's avatar I ordered up my 2012 F5 T-shirt.

Remember, thanks to Hayduke, the proceeds from the sales of F5 T's goes to this site, the place that provides the connection for the F5 fire hose that quinces our thirst for all things Dakar.

Maybe caused by the Team F5irehose being read by Eurosport and other news sources who now use it surreptitiously

ASO can't allow that to happen for the integrity of the event. At least that's what I think.

Can you share your bike cleaning tips? Especially the muddy bits.
