    Congrats USA. I wish NZ was a bit faster to make it a bit more interesting.

    read the posts, no other mention of blacked out in the USA, until you just said it.

    3 links posted previously, all busted.

    The first few races it was absolutely the opposite. Engineeer wonks and computer geeks in the warehouses made more tweaks than NZ down the stretch.

    Maybe Gus feels the same, but I prefer true match racing in equal boats (where you trade boats every race, not knowing which one you will get until moments before you get in it). But, the AC has never been about that.

    I'm fine with US, NZ or Australia taking it home. Just as long as the durn Brits never get it.

    see post at 3:14 on blackout. you've lost your touch. Links worked for me, but, no live streaming.

    In any case, the app was awesome. Replay will be available there pretty soon, if yesterday was any indication.

    ::: big sigh of relief ::::: :clap:clap

    The speed differences of both boats on each leg makes me think that navigation choices are more important with these boats than the the differences in the boats. :D

    Why would you do that to a perfectly good dirt bike?

    doubtful, I like my bike to start after camping in those frigid 40 degree temps.

    Me too. That's why I bought a new battery. Damn 10 year old bike needing a new battery. Ktm's are crap!

    I do not have to bend over to replace mine. Not physically, or financially.
