    IIRC the rules for the 4wds have them with a lot less suspension travel than the buggies. Don't think he'd sky it like that without worrying about the landing hit. Chicherit or Nasser could probably wing it like that, though.

    Fiambala has a legendary, and brutal, reputation on the Dakar. Tune in to hear how Ned's day went on this year's weather-shortened edition.

    LUDO from 2010:

    Ludo Boinnard calls from the bivouac after a day that saw him presumably retired with mechanical problems. Fortunately time heals all wounds, in this case even mechanical ones, and he was able to complete the stage!

    You'll remember this one forever, Ludo. We all will!

    Ludo Retires (or at least he thinks he does) Direct Download ONLY: http://traffic.libsyn.com/rallyraidio/10D03.mp3

    The later, the bike runs again, and he makes it through the special!! :clap

    With the limited suspension travel of the Mini's. It might just stay airborne right up until is crashed in the ass :lol3

    Egads! My heart leapt when I saw how high the hummer sailed in the air! I was just think he was driving like a bat out of hell and didn't expect him to hit a bump that would launch him.

    Awesome comment about Casteau at the end of LUDO's call in.
    Would love to see Casteau stay in it and win it.

    Back in about 1981, as a passenger in my buddies old Mazda 626 or some other ridiculous numbered car , we hit a raised railway crossing at ludicrous speed(~50 MPH) & probably flew over a 100ft with a heavy thud.
    A week later I was on an 81 IT250 & hit it at about 70 MPH fully expecting major airtime. :pynd :yikes

    I got about 30 FT of airtime if I was lucky.. :huh :csm
    Damn suspension soaked up most of the takeoff grade.

    Does every co-driver who sits next to RG get a new "the scariest moment of my entire life" story to tell?

    I have two close friends have been RG's co-dawgs (Bob Bower & Greg Till) for a number of years both of them in Baja and other races in the states. Both Bob & Greg insist that he is really calm and that there is nothing scary at all which is not what it looks like from the sidelines.
