Todays TV schedule

So guys, it seems that we're a bit light on TV coverage during the rest day... This is all I've managed to come up with (I check ES1/2 and FR2/3/4)

Rest day:
@ 16:55 (UTC/GMT) - France 3 (?? - big, 1 hour long, hole in the schedule)
@ 19:41 (UTC/GMT) - France 2 (Image du jour : Dakar 2013) ONLY 3 MINUTES LONG!
@ 22:00 (UTC/GMT) - Eurosport 1 (Highlights)

It's looking up to be a slow day in the f5irehose...

That looks very similar to my situation, except I've got two cats instead of a child. =)

I was his mechanic at Aus Safari 2011.....I'm sad to say he can't even wield a tyre iron in anger! However he's incredibly resourceful and can smell out generous souls to help him at fifty paces. He's also pretty fast on a bike. But needs to work on his soft skills. Just like Joan Barreda does. Get to work Manuel and find a mechanic! We are all still cheering for you!
Yep, I know what you mean

When this Dakr is over, we need to sponsor a engine teardown/rebuild class for Manny.


I have a few old bikes that could use some nerfing Unfortunaltely, I only know how to fix stuff if its just barley possible, impractical and there are no tools or hope

Caught up again, that was rather busy for the rest day

And the best news is that I was able to do a VLC swap in the marathon bivouac and now I can watch France 2, 3 & 4

Why is the Australian rider Matt Fish so far back now? He's got a 9 hour penalty? Why? Cumulative missed waypoints? Multiple engine changes? Searched this thread but nothing .....

(BTW, I thought maybe Depres wore that really annoying headband because his ears stuck out but no, his ears are okay so I can only think its a Contractual Obligation Headband for the sponsers).

Y'all are funny.


Cyril wear hats too, ya know.



































It's probably just easier to carry the bandanna along during the actual race.....hats don't fit under your helmet very well.
