I see you are from Canada? This must make you an Amireekun then?

And no, the Sydney harbour bridge does not connect New Zealand to Australia.


Seriously, New Zealand is part of Queensland on my map.

Whew... update

The lay-out is all finished, photos are all being colour corrected, and Ted has all the chapters
in his hands for a final proof-reading.

Never thought I'd get the Dakar blues twice in one year, but that's just what has happened...

Designing this book has sucked me into the race all over again, albeit from a whole new perspective
(I can't count the number of times I got goosebumps while reading Ted's account, the racer's
perspective or the amazing and often gut-wrenching photos)... and now that it's over I've got that
hollow feeling again

A big thanks to Ted for entrusting me with this opportunity, I hope everyone here likes the final result

Neil... good news on you committing to '13! Someone needs to document this!

Pre sales end this weekend. The book ended up being 248 pages instead of 220.....I decided to reduce my small margin of profit and make it even smaller rather than start removing photos

This weekend I remove the pre sales package and won't be taking orders until mid May (which wont include a dvd) once the printing is finished.

A huge thanks to everyone who purchased a book, it's much appreciated. Enjoy the read

Ted
