    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?
