    I really like David. He won the Central Europe - the stand-in after the cancelled 08 Dakar on a factory KTM. When he went to Sherco, I was betting on him to win the thing. Really, really bad luck:

    in the opening stages in the last three years have thrown him out of the top contenders list.

    Love to see him up front again.

    What a smile!

    I hope so, with all the effort he done with preparations and all the work I did. He needs to keep cool head, keep the rubber side down and I know he is fast enough. Just too damn hot in the head sometimes.

    I am from Slovakia, work in Norway for some ages now and are behind technical of PAU, so why not to help fellow countryman if asked ?? :)

    I would send DHL to a big hotel along the assistance route. They get packages all the time, and the sprinter can just stop and pick up and leave a tip...

    I bet he's just riding his pace, and the terrain agrees with him today.

    Pain is closing in on Cyril in the overall... at wp5 he is 1:17 behind.

    Might we see a Yamaha leading into tomorrow?

    edit: I think something bad has happened to Casteu between 4 & 5...
