    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

    I thought there were a lot less in previous years. Makes you wonder what's different this year. Level of skill, mechanical, route........??

    Sky news is like this thread at times, they are making continuous and ongoing live news story about the hostage situation in Algeria from several snippets of info - nothing about fuel though :lol3

    In true Dakar style, we should issue them a cease and desist for infringing on our trademarked style.

    I'd put a smiley in there, but I feel for those poor souls on the ground in Algeria. :waysad
