    Eurosport just showed them getting a quad over the swollen river slung under a helicopter, Also Al Attiyah seriously stuck in the mud so it looked bad out there!

    wow in the footage the mitsu was still kind of dry land
    the pic Flood posted it is utterly engulfed in the river
    crazyness that river came up quick


    What about where Nasser was stuck? That does not seem to be the rivers fault but rather his choice of route to avoid it.
    He indeed will be lucky if they go to WP8 or so....

    Interesting, thanks for the link.

    I'm not sure if this isn't a very Portuguese spin on the story, but under the light that Cyril may leave KTM anyway, it makes a lot of sense. Ruben has waited long enough and is in a good position now.
