i'd like to submit my second nomination for this guy to be the miserable user.
As far as I understood, his roadbook roller stopped working and he broke a wheel
No idea where his new wheel popped up from
As long as I can't smell you from here.....all good
Again, I don't wish anything bad to anyone, I just want Jake to be better than the others.
I'm not fan of team strategy, but in this case I will make an exception
I am working while I watch.. Sort-a. I'll return that email after the next wp. Return that call after everyone finishes. I'll place that order when I'm done looking at the days pictures and videos.
And there it is. My feeling is that the true challenge of Dakar is not any single part, it is the totality of it. It is needing to focus for hours and hours each day, not only on the hard parts (which is easy) but also on the easy parts (which is hard).
At this point in the race, minor repetitive stress injuries are stacking up. Fingers refuse to function, wrists feels like hell, butts hurt for the unlucky who don't know James Renazco. If you allow your mind to wander to these issues, whether they are minor or major, you are at risk every foot you cover.
The advantage is that by this point, you are used to the schedule and the functions of the race. You know where you need to be and when you need to be there. You know people to smile and say hello to and wish good luck everywhere you go. A lot of mental energy that was absorbed in the early days figuring this stuff out, is no longer needed.
The last few days are not a gimme. As Sandi said, it ain't over till it's over. No one would call the Baja 500 a short race, at this point, there is still most of the distance of that race left to run in special. A lot can and will happen.
One last major point: GO PYNDON!
and Manuel is using a dirty dead snake around his neck this year, presumably because he doesnt have the funds for a proper neck brace.
After Pharaons Rally I've heard that Barreda is fast like hell but navigation is not his friend. Better work on that.
Pyndon to WP7 +01:28:28
and Si's thru WP8 +00:57:06
Specialized has been sponsoring (at various levels from free bikes to actual logos on kit) Supercross and American enduro riders for a few years now.
I know at enduro nationals you will see quite a few riders warming up on MTBs, and Spec seems to be the most popular brand.
Well put Ned! Explains my feelings exactly!!
Is it cold where you are? Do you have your head up your ass for warmth? If you can I recommend pulling it out and having a look around. You might appreciate a wider view of the world.
Looks almost like Lyndon is riding together on stage with Darryl Curtis? Curtis is very banged up from yesterday and way off his usual pace.
Coming on page 1000 (in standard display)!~

Edit: not yet, damn.
