    It will be great if KC just finishes. :getiton He's gained tremendous experience this year and shown that he can run with the fastest top elites.

    Future Dakars: WATCH OUT! KC Storm on the horizon!!!!

    Absolutely agree, which is why I was so gutted when he was stopped. I would like to see him finish this edition for his and us 'mericans sake. Previous to the stoppage he'd already proven the ability to run with the current elites.

    Pisco Sour's rock! I first tried them at the Norton Rat's Tavern in Cusco.
    Liked them so much I bought quite a few bottles of Pisco and sours mix to take home. :freaky

    Once again the last real stage of the race throws a bunch of surprises at us.

    Husky loses 2 bikes :cry

    Kurt loses the stage win due to a mechanical :cry

    But like all Dakars it also provides moments of greatness

    Luis takes the start line after what is presumably a crazy effort to get there, again. :clap

    One more stage to go...I wouldnt call this race over yet :deal

    I don't know about you guys, but I would sure like to hear Luis's stories about this Dakar once it's all over, and sure hope he gets that 150 to Santiago! :clap:clap

    So, if Coma was on "Caselli's" bike, and he was neck-and-neck with Despres for the overall, that mechanical would have been a very major ordeal!

    Deadly & Brodivich: tales from the bivouac have GOT to phone interview Luis at the very least and perhaps transcribe his experiences. :deal :deal
