    Also some of the Dutch truck team members tend to wear them around bivouac. Gotta love how casual and down to earth they remain in all that chaos :D

    I remember Ned saying he had somewhat of a dilemma last year about it. He knew he'd be riding and if he was in shorts and came off it could spell trouble, but equally I seem to remember him saying you have a lot of standing and sitting around for the briefings so with full riding gear you would most likely sweat your ass off.

    So I thought I'd do a little hors-piste F5 tune up today. Suffered keyboard vapor lock and now sit waiting for the sweeper truck.

    Can't wait for the real action to begin, but knowing I'll be way behind due to the time zone differences.

    Check out press release issued by Honda on Felipe Zanol: The Brazilian driver Felipe Zanol, Team HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) is recovering well in hospital in California (USA), where he is hospitalized and performs physical therapy sessions.
