    I heard they're squaring them off against Chicherit's pole dancers in a no hold barred title match on the rest day... :evil

    Apparently monster's chipping in for an MMA cage and the whole nine yards! :clap

    The speedbrain release stated he was battling on trying to make it to the bivouac... was way behind but pressing on.

    Matt's learning first hand what Dakar in the desert after dark is all about... :huh

    Gotta luv the French, TV coverage had bikes on liaison section to "Easy Rider" soundtrack then cameras up dancing girls skirts for knickers shot and then a full boob close up of a masseur, wow. PLUS I stuffed up the recording so you can only imagine if you missed it France 2 Le Bivouac rocks.

    Good lord, this could possibly have been the toughest dakar f5irehose day yet!

    My friend just left the apartment. She did actually watch the interview coverage on ES#1 with me, but left right before the later coverage. And after that I was left with about 640 posts to read since I actually had to socialize tonight... Finally done reading them all now.

    I'm now ready to hit the sack for a little bit more than four hours of sleep. I'm gonna regret this tomorrow. =D

    Sounds like Joan Barreda is hurt. Could be a chance of not starting tomorrow? Or am I bulk late to this party?

    Thanks for the reminder! One can let their guard down when they go to watch a race and think just because they are not racing it can not be dangerous.

    Sorry to hear about your loss but it is great to see how the brotherhood of motorcycling has a long reach.

    dont know if posted before, i'm a long way behind but catching...

    nicolas boyer 127 xr400, still in the game.
    he's been hovering in the 95-105 band
    i watch for his number coming in every day.
    awesome effort given the attrition of other riders and bikes
    and given the severity of the terrain has much "better" machines at their limit

    i hope i havent given him the kiss of death.
    goooo nicolas:freaky
