    I haven't seen a Banshee race Baja in years. It would take alot of $ to make a Banshee handle as well as a modern quad.

    Mme Moreau's twin sons, Kurt and Joan, couldn't help her as they are currently taking part in a motorcycle race in South America, the police stated.

    Nah, you've got better things to do with your time. Besides, any questions can get answered here quickly enough.

    Hmm, maybe put a firehose link on the page?

    If I could ask for something, it's a design that makes it more obvious if I'm looking at stage, stage hours or overall times. Sometimes I click on overall, forget about it and then I'm confused out of my mind when I look again.

    Maybe a headline saying "overall" right above the rider list would be enough.

    I ducked out on Saturday, because I went for a ride.

    That was acceptable.

    Contract BS?

    I don't think so, Tim.

    It looks like the clerc that dropped the penalty sheet behind the water cooler has found it and entered it into the system.

    mornin' guys (and gals).

    there is no way I can keep up, so seems like Manuel is running good - did he fix the engine or did "turning the carb" around solve his troubles? :lol3

    Olivier Pain has also stopped, 182 km into the special, for some as yet unknown reason. The Frenchman and former overall leader has come to a halt in a forested area where the course of today's special follows a forest road.


    Overall leader David Casteu has come to a standstill 210 km into today's special. The rider from Nice had already stopped before to check something on his motorcycle. It looks like he's got a fuel supply problem (a leak, maybe?). But the Yamaha rider stopped 16 km from the refuelling point, could it be that he's run out of petrol?
