I'll throw a comment in here... My sense is the Kurt might be up with the fastest even in tight stuff, witness his WEC/ 6days results. What he's not is the guy who can carry most of that pace for 3 hours in that setting.

From what I've seen, he has a 110% afterburner that works well for special tests in the woods, but not a 98% 3 hour setting. His endurance in the desert seems to stem from his 70% being everyone elses 100%.

But what do I know, I couldn't hold on to his dust in either situation!

I'm really excited for his result, and I agree with Scotty, he can put together the pieces of the puzzle to win. 2014 might be early for that expectation, but the chance is there!

Seen that leads me to believe that the information is available for the underlying application but we are not getting it as it is too slow to support all of us fans.

A 30 minute delay iritrack position of the riders should be achievable with realtime like movement but requires some generous investment from the ASO and since this does not produce money as of the current web design the investment will not arrive soon. i remember that in africa we were able to track the riders on a map through the stages, i wonder if it was ever abused to inform the team and thus removed.

If you can convince the ASO they can make money out of you starring on a screen with some moving dots they will invest, but i think they are not there yet.

Speaking of Kurt, he's opened WP1

agree on the other points, some really good videos of the German ISDE floating around on Youtube... now that was gnarly stuff

25 minutes for 40kms, that's what, 62.5 km/h average speed?

I still ca not understand the fuel issue with Helder´s HRC bike.
First time, Pizzolito gave him extra fuel (so Pizzolito not onl finished but have extra fuel for helder).
Ok, I may ave been a question or riding style.


But as I pointed out yesterday (sorry, I am insisting), on Fiambala stage Pizzolito had an error navigasting which took him to ride 30 more minute, then ran the stage faster than Helder but did not get out of fuel.

Is it riding style?
Or; i am gressing, Helder bike may not be the same as javier´s.
It could make sense, as Helder is top rider aiming for a podium, and may be Javier (or Campbell, who I also have not listen to have run out of fuel) a lttle more conservative EFI or engine?
