    That really was a bit surprising. On the other hand, this was the only sponsor-related tweet coming out of ASO central up to now:

    :rolleyes

    Yes, I'm sure they only posted that because it's cute and funny.

    Rod should have come through WP3 by now?

    Hopefully he hasn't had a mechical (or worse still, a crash)

    I actually already managed to find 1 or 2 asshats in the Racing forum to ban. It's hard to find them in this forum of gentlemen, but they do exist!

    Don't forget they signed Helder and others over 6 month ago with a long term plan - we don't know what that was, Helder does. :clap:clap

    Telling your mom that your an overweight middle aged guy who spends entire days at a time pinned to a keyboard pressing F5, hatching conspiracy theories wishing they could one day ride an actual motorcycle in the Dakar?

    From rest day interview with Ivan Jakeš
    Nobody (of the elite riders) changed the engine yesterday. We have discussed this option but everyone is afraid to put brand new engine in before three hard stages that lies before us. We have checked mine, it looks like new one. I'm satisfied with it.
