Looks like "Shoestring" is eating high off the hog. :dg
Couple of questions: By what means did J.C. communicate his need for a fuel pump back to the bivouac/pits & is the plural of mousse, mousse or mousses?
great call in!
Hmmm... ...a cardboard sign...smoke signals...give a local 10 bucks to run back??
A round of mousse?
In this case it is a Murder of mousse
I see bikes and quads run 1km further on the SS tomorrow, and they have a refuel stop at around 173, So maybe extra 1km to get off and on the track for fueling?
Yep, outside communication is not allowed, unless you YELL without any electronic device. Then again, a spectator probably saw what was going on, called his friends, who cmmunicated it to HRC in the bivouac. So Johnny did nothing wrong!
Any Spanish speakers want to take a crack at this tweet from Carlos Sainz? Google translate wasn't exactly revealing...
"Malas noticias. La organización ha decidido volver a ponernos la penalización de los 21 mnts. Una vergüenza dan ganas de coger las maletas.
Gah :ddog Had to actually WORK all day and now I'm 70 pages behind. Wife is pinging me about when I'll be home... think she'd mind if I hung around for another 2 hours and tried go get caught up?
Honda should have taken a page from the playbook of the Safariberg/Husaberg Rally Team of 2012. - If I recall, they ran a dual fuel pump system (one internal/one external) that could be switched over quickly if one failed.
Mcguyver - check this out, don't know if you can see it if you are not a friend, cut a nav gear/road book housing made up of a plastic switchgear case takes the prize
They probably had a "hunch"?
"Hey Carl, you know that problem our bikes have? the one with the fuel pump? maybe I'm going crazy here but bare with me: what if we send some spare fuel pumps on the special with that nascar guy as a delivery boy? maybe this way, our riders may actually finish the stage..."
PS: I actually ride a honda... :huh
