Torque Transfer!



Update from the road - pt.1

After leaving England at 3am yesterday morning with Torque Racing in two vans, we rendezvous with Mattias from Offroadservice.SE (Sweden) somewhere near Spa in Belgium at lunchtime and transfered some of the UK bikes into the support truck for the rest of the journey down to Tunisia...

Donna and I are now in France, sorting a brake issue with their new van (grrrrrr) in a Dijon dealer - before we have to get to Genoa in Italy to catch the ferry tomorrow morning - just how 'International' can you get eh?

Plenty of drama already on our side, the rally hasn't even begun!

Cheers Blueball.

My plan is to roll around complete all the course and get every checkpoint!

From what I've heard getting all checkpoints will mean a healthy result!

Hi Paul

Pleased to see the usual meticulous level of preparation.

Good luck to you and Gabe on the event.

Don't go injuring yourself though so you have an excuse when the Bagoadi's whip your a** at the PKU!

Have fun

Gaz

So jealous of all of you who get to go this year, the 2013 edition was one of my most fun weeks ever! Awesome riding in amazing scenery, and lots of cool people who share the same passion to meet from all over the world.

Good luck and have fun!
