    Hey Troy,

    No offense taken! I'm no Elite rider... But I gotta give props to Faria. As you mentioned, he is just amazingly professional and humble at the same time. Would be interesting to see him as #1 on a team, maybe once CDP and Coma retire...

    He certainly has shown that he can lead a rally and win stages. Would be great to see him win one of these years!

    Couldn't have put it better; it takes something special to ride to team orders the way he has; and if promises from corporate/competition groups mean anything, let's hope that KTM have promised him the top step of the podium in a year or two.

    Hope he get a chance. He's earned it, thats for sure.

    I just told wife I'd "have to stay up to wait for Luis"

    Know what she did?



























    She put on snooker on Eurosport:chace

    I have been on the phone calling and texting everyone I can find in biv. Rumors are Luis is still slowing moving. Again, rumors at this point!

    I guess Perfecthansel has gotten bored with winning Dakar so many times on Bikes and Cars and figures Trucks are the next logical choice. Quads, not so much. It would be fun to see him in a truck, but what brand would it be?

    I'm trying to think positive thoughts and I'm positive that I'm having trouble finding any to think positively about. :becca

    Of one thing I am sure; ASO know exactly where Luis is and what the situation is.

    I suspect he's already told 'em to sit on it more than once.

    C'mon, Luis!

    OK, who knows who in France TV or Eurosport?

    Maybe we can get FR4 TV7 or Jean-Francois Kar-Kar (sp?) back onto one of their heli's, or Eurosport and go find Luis! Would make a good story line for them. :getiton

    My question is if rumor true.....why wouldn't he get towed in before the last 6 bikes all passed him??? It's not all sounding right to me. Still working on getting "accurate" info, not rumors.

    Does Renault make a Big 'Un 10-tonner? Not that familiar with them.
