    the long and short of it is that it's not happening to the others, so it's either something that helder is doing or something in the setup of his bike that is different... either way the problem should have been sorted after the first time it happened....

    What did I say about Barreda's Nav skillz? :augie

    10:41 - bike

    005 - Barreda loses his way a little

    After 201 km, the Spanish rider headed a bit too far north and had to turn round. He was in the lead but may be in the process of losing his position to Francisco Lopez.

    The peleton hit the refuel an hour ago. with a 15min stop, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 40km to the next wp, we should see wp5 go hot any time now.

    Anyone know how many bikes started last year at stage 12? 130 seems aweful high or do I just not remember.

    Talking to a group of friends last night about all 3 of Freedom's riders still "in". They said something along the lines of glad all 3 are going to finish the race. :rofl HA!!!! Outsiders just don't get it.....it ain't over 'til it's over!!!!!!!!

    Last year Luis made it to the END of stage 13 before breaking his hand. So we still have a long few days left.

    Are we sure that wouldn't be a light like used in Baja. I'd want to have one on hand just in case.

    Just saving any assault on alien status until he gets a better grip on the Nav - I wonder who is taking the initiative up front ?:eek1

    Hmm Casseli has equal timing with van Niekerk now...I wonder if he came off or had a problem?

    The Fishy is in front of them both. He is pulling strong this one. :deal
