    one more year and after some dificulty, the classic Bultaco and Ignacio Chivite, keep going together from Lima to try to finish.

    If you can, look at @PacoMartinezDkr last year, and Ignacio Chivite, 2011 and 2013.

    Portuguese. I hate Portuguese.

    that would be a nice collaboration tool. I 've used google calendar, but I think you have to have a google account.

    Folks -

    I have a halfway-formatted filterable Excel sheet with all the riders, countries, bikes, etc that I'll stick on Dropbox if anybody is interested. I'm using it to make filter lists for Mischa but I'll need help with the categories we'd like to see. I haven't figured out how to make my "lists" populate automatically based on the categories I assign but oh well. So far country lists are easy to generate, others I have are Inmate, HRC, Speed(brain), Ladies, 1st Dakar, etc. I'd like to crowd-source populating these lists if possible, especially the "1st Dakar" list and for the life of me I can't remember the other Lady besides Laia... (edit: found her... #117)

    Once we get it populated it would be very cool if an inmate could host it in an easily downloadable location...

    Justin

    All against Cyril.

    Coma: "Controlling one's easy. Five is impossible. "

    Cyril: Strategy?? Continue to fight against the desert. In all this time I have come to the conclusion that the desert is the ultimately and the strongest rival.

    He's out, and clearly devastated, as I am for him.

    From his Twitter account in the past 30 mins:

    @MotoBenny: I'm out. Engine blew at km 21 of 2nd stage. No idea why. I didn't overrev or miss a shift. Spent the whole day being towed back.

    @MotoBenny: Extremely sad and hard to understand what the hell happened. Could stay w rally in assistance but my heart isn't in it. Going home.

    ‏@MotoBenny: Will fight another day.

    Now two Canadians left, David's Aldo Racing teammate Patrick Beaule on a bike, and Don Hatton who rides with Simon Pavey.

    Yes, spoke to his wife a bit ago. He made "something" from his bracelet and is now in the bivoac. I haven't heard from the crew, but I'm sure they are busy getting him put back together for tomorrow.
