    In from Luis' wife:
    Luis finished the stage. He fell and has some muscle pain in his leg. He was receiving medical attention. He seems to be fine.
    Another day down!

    A hundredth of a kilometer is what, 350 feet? Too much information. Too much to look at and process at speed. And, probably outside the margin of error, given all the things that can make your odometer slightly off.

    Does anyone know what the scheduling looks like for the Canal+ flavor of France 2? It's clearly not the same as specified here: http://www.france2.fr/programme-tv. Or perhaps there's a delay from earlier today?

    So with the high speed of some stages, and potential high temperatures, how does the mousse typically hold up? Am I correct in assuming that well supported riders get both new tires and mousse each day?

    A hundredth of a kilometer is more like 33 feet. 5280*.01= 53*.6 ~ 33.

    Apologies to those of you in the world not using indecipherable measurements.

    I suspect you are right, too small of a unit to be useful.

    :cry205'ed, and by faster and more accurate math.

    This was already discussed and quoted " ya but if your aunt had balls she would be your uncle"


    :D


    Stoked Luis made it in.

    It's going to be a cold and chilly liaison tomorrow morning. Tough way to start a day...tough way to start day 12 of racing...

    Must be getting close to Rally Radio time, I'm looking forward to Lyndons recap of the day :clap

    Helder:

    "Despite the very difficult conditions of the route today, due to strong rains that fell, I was feeling very good and confident that I could get a good result. I went very early to the front of the two pilots who went ahead of me, that also preceded in the standings. During some miles they were behind me, but then I went away from and my goal was to get to the front group, but unfortunately there was a setback that prevented me from achieving this"







    hummmm...
