    Great video of the navigation difficulties.

    Watching KC riding is just fun!

    CdP's approach to that river crossing....smart, why take a chance with an off/injury/pick up the bike.

    Nice to be caught up again

    and David was shown in the first few minutes explaining the live tracking ASO'les does on the participants. Maybe he were trying to calm the F5ivers down showing proof that they were indeed working on it ??

    I love it when Yanks run their whole tough-guy act. In your American enduro, there wasn't a wall of water rushing down the dry river bed you were racing in. People die like that. It's that simple.

    In one clip they show a bike screwing up the climb out, and there goes Pat just popping through and gone.

    Look, i just fell in love with K.Caselli's riding but would you please stop with the "kurt got screwed" whining ? He did mistakes and got penalised.

    I have been accross the "pond", more than once for ISDT an not ISDE. Kurt won the ISDE 450cc class overall and he kicks butt here, now tell me again about Dakar.
