Check his bio in signature... PM'd
Actually quite a bit. I've been doing similar stuff, just been a bad boy lately and fell out of the habit...
This is pretty much standard practice in SX/MX and a good majority of the GNCC/enduro types are either using some sort of cycling to warm-up/cool-down or at least train. The idea is to keep the body from collapsing, going from on/off like that does some hard stuff to the body.
If he's willing, absolutely.
if you do, we need to know more about the writs-band/gasket fix
An interview with Luis, and an interview with Pyndon and PynDad would end the Dakar season on a real high note for Rally RAIDio...
Thanks for taking the time away to get the call up, PM.
The PackMule tracker. Will have to have Mischa add that to the site.
Scanned with my phone last time we were up here and couldn't find any open networks, and the 3g signal here bounces too much to use with the computer.
The original RallyRAIDio laptop (ancient) managed to sniff out a signal, though. Karma?
Doesn't sound like he'll be sad to finish. Someone remarked that he sounded tired, but I thought he sounded really upbeat and energized.
Man, KTM has a *stash* of photos this year.
Hey, Pyn's keeping it going to the end, I can't very well fail him (and you all) at this point, can I.
Man, what a day, finally caught up. Kind of glad I missed the heart attacks along the way. Thanks again to Garfey and Misha and Flood for keeping thing rolling in.
Gotta take time with family when it presents itself.
Bring it home tomorrow, everyone!
This year I've been reduced to mostly catching up in the evenings. While it's a bummer not to follow it in real time, it's fun to read everyone posts. It's like recording the Superbowl on a DVR and not giving into the temptation to check the score so you can experience the game as it played out. It's not quite so bad following the Dakar since there is already a built-in delay when following it.
I agree with some others (like 30 pages back, I'm not going to go looking for that needle in the F5 haystack) in that I've lost some respect for Mark Miller and Perfect-hansel in their criticisms of Gordon. I'm sure RG isn't perfect, but they do the very things they accuse him of (but of course it's different because they're justified). I've seen a lot of good from R.G., and I think they exaggerate . . . I want to elaborate more but I'm so tired I can't stand it. I've just got to shut up and go to sleep.
I'm excited for Pyn, of course, but I find myself super-excited for Luis. Last year was a heart-breaker when he got so close to the end. And if Manuel, Luis and Pyndon end up with finisher medals I'm going to invent a new happy dance and make my neighbors wonder what the hell is happening over here. Laia has been brilliant and tenacious, Patrick has been smooth and consistent. It's been a great Dakar. The only way it could get better if Cyril's KTM breaks down and it takes him 20 minutes to fix (no dislike for CD, I'm just sayin' it would make things awesome).
Am I crazy or did all the fonts on this Page 1100 go from normal readable San Serif to tiny Serif fonts? None of the other threads, or even earlier pages shows this way, and in multiple browsers the same? Did the ADVserver hiccup?
Not just you, I'm having the same issue.
Must be a tracking problem®
Ok, so it's not just me. I thought I had messed up some how.:huh
A branch has pulled a wire somewhere.
Tapatalk interface is fine (save that it does not have access to the smarmy emoticons)
Yeah but................. its been a GREAT RALLY............i cant complaine about anything. .....Still watin to see who takes what
wow...1100 pages !!!!!!!!
uno dia mas !
Wow! Another entertaining day.
Great job everyone!
Chaleco gives the fans what they want... excitement and something to cheer about. One bit of bad luck away from a Dakar victory for the Chilean people.
Despres... was Despres, managing the situation like a true general. He did what needed to be done to stay in the lead without risking too much and saving the bike for the last day... which will be another long 600 plus km. Nice ending! No cake walk.
Svitko! Svitko! Great job in giving that little nation in Central Europe a reason to cheer and to be proud. Love it! Keep it up!
Caselli... luck is part of any race... especially Dakar. This time it looks like he was bitten by it. C 'est la vie! He still has had one hell of Christening to the Dakar brotherhood. He showed he has what it takes to run with the leaders. Great job!
Faria...Ah! Faria! It is better to loose from your own mistake then someone else's or bad luck. It is not the first time nor will it be the last time... but hopefully it never happens at such a big dance when he is in arms reach of the leader. But... this is what makes racing so great. The uncertainty.
Luis! The ultimate Iron Man. I think Despres riding/sleep numbers are inversely related to Luis'. Great job in showing internal fortitude. Something I think has become rather rare in this day.
Hats off to all the guys digging deep to get the job done. Thank you for showing us all on how determination can overcome physical abuse, Murphy's Law, and mental exhaustion.
One more day to see how everything settles into place. Good luck to everyone and may it be a great, safe, yet exciting day for all. Cheers!
