    Thanks guys for keeping everything going. I've been lurking while trying to not totally ignore my parental duties but mostly keeping my twitter feed going. Great job keeping the flow at unmanageable levels. :lol3

    On the subject of co-drivers... Orlando Pendejo going well, but how long before his co-driver walks out this year?

    Speaking of which, The Great Pendejo got himself a Portuguese co-driver, Paulo Fiuza. Let's hope it turns out better than last year :D

    Good lord, the swedish commentary... They just said that the competition between the Husky and KTM bikes is kind of a moot point since Husqvarna is owned by KTM. *facePalm*

    Helder's FB:

    Was doing the step in accordance with what they had planned. Already knew that in the initial phase would lose some time in overtaking insofar as there were enough dust and didn't want to run any kind of risk. But then I started having more open terrain and able to walk further. However, the half a dozen kilometers from the arrival, I realised that I was low on petrol and was forced to determine progress, not to run the risk of getting stopped in the middle of the selective sector.
