    Eurosport was great today. Often there's a lot of footage of guys riding by themselves, or bottled up at an obstacle (e.g., muddy expanse), but to see a few of the guys competing for top spots, riding close by each other was great.

    The big delay was between WP1 and WP2 - no idea what the problem was but others had trouble there, too. He's been moving pretty steadily since then.

    GO MANUEL!!!
