It should also be noted that it was Mike Standfield and Scott Spears (along w/Sandi) of Freedom Rally Racing that helped Manuel Lucchese get his mousses in his time of need.

When Sandi was notified of the need, she immediately got in contact with the team and Mr. Standfield stepped up to help.

From the time he posted his need on Facebook to the time he had his new mousses was under 4 hours.

I'd love to hear from Luis. Questions could include:

1. Average sleep per night. How did you stay awake on the stage?
2. What happened that night in the dunes... what was it, Stage 12 maybe? 60kms from the end... we all thought you were pushing... etc.
3. How much did the bike weigh?
4. Did you have enough HP to attack the dunes or did you have to chose your lines carefully?
5. What kind of speed could you hold on the tarmac?

Justin
Great questions.

Luis and Scott weren't able to connect with me today, but they are feet-wet and we will try to catch them once they come home.

guess who showed up at the shop today...














mr. 11 time his very own self.. fresh of the airplane from dakar.. he regaled us with tales from the far off lands...!!! we asked him if he wanted to roost with his rip brothers tomorrow in baja... he politely declined.. reminding us, while showing his battlescars, that he was just back from an EPIC dirtbike ride his very own self.. roughly the equivalent of san clemete to new york... and back... on a dirt bike...

johnny you are excused... but remember rip to cabo is just a few months away... let's roost in baja brother.. wheelies on the beach... it was great seeing you and faye... and thanks again faye for updating us all riding in spirit with johnny...

and for you sayers of ney... it wasn't fuel tank capacity that was HRC's issue.. and i'll leave it at that.. HRC can tell there story as they wish...

all i gotta tell ya is watch out for honda in 2014...

Quick question: there are 3 crew in the trucks - driver, navigator.... What does the third guy do? Monitor the gauges like a flight engineer?

I think he's mostly there for his muscles....those tires are heavy!!

edit: believe his main role/title is mechanic...see above.
