    If being able and willing to change fuel pump/filter, injector or regulator along the road, and be real anal about earthing points is what it takes, I'm willing.

    Back to Dakar - and another one of those "is it just me" moments:'

    Was it just my imagination?

    What mine's going to look like as soon as the missus gets a proper job (overtiming a PhD at the moment) and we're back on two incomes. I hope it will be by may....:freaky

    EDIT: On the other hand, I hope I can convince it to start by may

    He did say that, but sometimes his data and translations are a little off.

    one thing I didn't get is why pedrero didn't wait for cdp. Caselli was 4 minutes down the road and Cyril only got pedrero at wp5....150km. A lot can happen in 150km

    :eek1

    Lyndon is making great progress on the 2nd portion of the stage today!


    I don't really understand how snooker can trump the Dakar over on ES but I live in a place where fishing is a pro sport so I'll just go lie down by my dish.

    Still.. It's his first Dakar.. Getting to the finish line is ultimately a lot more important than a stage result I think:clap
