    Thanks for the research. This year is the tightest race I can remember for many years. Just hope that some riders decision to continue with their original engine doesn't backfire. We shall see

    Ok! Backmarker trying to catch up but this is what I expected... Cyril showing his rear wheel to everyone and people only seeing his dust from a distance. I'm 40 pages back so a lot can happen before the end.

    I would expect Cyril to take 15 minutes out at the minimum because of his experience in winning and not worrying about preserving his engine.

    Can't wait to see how the day ends! Luckily... like many here... no worries about someone letting it slip.

    So, does anyone know how this snooker thing works? If so - would you be able to give an estimate as to how long this is going to take?

    I've got absolutely no idea what so ever on how to read the scoring...

    Well, he sorta does have to worry about preserving his engine; another swap will cost 45 minutes, not just 15.

    This is again too long to read it all, so maybe old news...

    CD is changing engine again. Fresh news from PAU. :)

    I think they've got to sink all the red balls, then the numbered balls.........

    The choppy google translate.....


    Nor was unproblematic Laia Sanz (Gas Gas), that began in fable, setting good times, but there came a time when you had a problem with the engine that made ​​him lose time. A long time for a problem with a small plug (desvaporizador oil tank) that he came out and started losing engine oil. When he realized he stood quickly, but had lost the tools and had to wait for his backpacking Miguel Puertas (Gas Gas) carrying the equipment needed to complete the repair and return to get ahead. However, at the time of uploading this chronicle, Laia, who had needed the towed for the link, had not yet reached the end of the stage.

    That's interesting.

    Can you tell us more how PAU is doing?
    I haven't seen anything about him for the last few stages.

    It'll be interesting to see if there's any truth to this...
