    Yee gods, it's just taken me 2 hours to catch up from this morning, at times you guys were posting faster than I could read!

    Aparently Polish Ski dude is going to take up Sn**ker next year, that way he will get more TV coverage to F5ers :lol3

    So what's the latest?

    Lopez up 8 minutes, or 2.20? does he know the location of a local worm hole in the space time continuum?

    Funny you write this about last year. I think last year was an exception. At least it was compared to all the years before. I was really amazed how well things went last year. Still there were some timing problems, but this year looked more familiar to me :evil

    Let's do some Brodomath. How far was the Neutralization stage? 200kms?

    Wonder what the average speed is given some small towns and such... 75 kph? 2.6 hrs?

    Lopez crossed WP3 at ~ 10:43... 1:20 PM Chile time? Hmmm... average speed must be much slower or I'm off on the distance.

    Edit: given the traffic shown in Henno's video, maybe average speed is way slower...

    Maray is severly pissed off. Somebody know why? Because they're not allowed at the zona de meta?
