    That was the shittiest liaison of the race last year. Windy, hot, traffic, and boring.

    Respect to Luis, he's done it before and he'll do it again!

    As Lyndon finished the special in 04.39.07 only 40.23 behind Cyril (03.58.04), I would expect he's in by now :clap:clap:clap

    Looks like our boy had a good day :D

    If you missed it earlier, Eurosport is due to be repeating at 23.45 but they are running late tonight, so it will be on at Midnight (GMT)

    Five minutes to go!

    Lyndon was about 40 minutes slower on the stage but his start time was about an hour later ? So I guess she is due in any time ? Fingers crossed !

    EDIT - I see he's in

    :clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

    Time to go to sleep !

    Well the VLC player is even more magical than I thought, If you're having the stop and start streaming stuff, just hit record let the show finish, then playback is without stops and starts!!

    Having fun getting caught up:

    Strong Bad quote almost made me choke eating dinner.:rofl

    Robby Roll = CRAP:puke1

    Don's Dakar ending sad, but glad he is ok.

    Pyndon another smooth ride.:clap

    Bluebull, interesting perspective on the changes with Dakar.

    Our lead French Alien heading into the race has company at the front.:wink:

    The France4 highlight video from today is my favorite so far, stunning scenery!

    I am learning so much more about the race this year thanks to ADV. It sucks being at work knowing so many stories are taking place, but nice to get home and start seeing the passion everyone shares in these posts.

    Saw on the web a few days ago a picture showing the radiators in Robby's Hummer are in the front of the vehicle.

    Good Evening,
