    I can hotlink or embed it if you need, plenty of bandwith available. Shoot me a pm though cause I've already been skipping pages here as my wife doesn't like the sopranos, my kids are too young and, strangely, I'm one of the last Greeks who's still employed...

    Fuel problems at the HRC team:huh:huh:huh:huh:huh:huh:huh

    Helder Rodrigues 15th in stage (+10 min32s) and 15th in General:
    "In the beginning there was a lot of dust, but the dunes I tried to recover many positions. At one point in the stage, was third and I forced myself to the end to ensure a good result. however, 4 km to the end, I ran out of fuel and had to wait for the Pizzolito help me. I was disappointed, but the Dakar is still long. "
    *
    Johnny Campbell 33 in step (+19 min53s), 35th in General:
    "It was a step 100% sand, with some dunes difficult and very steep at the back. I had to be careful with gasoline. How many of us lost some precious time at kilometer 74 to validate the waypoint. then found the right direction and passed several riders. stopped to help Juan Carlos (Salvatierra), Honda rider in Bolivia and then continued. at km 30 was a good race among five drivers. We were passing each other. "
    *
    Javier Pizzolito 49th in step (27min05s) and 39 in General:
    "I liked the dunes, so it was a good step for me. Made a navigational error at kilometer 79, which made &#8203;&#8203;me lose time. Then made &#8203;&#8203;another at kilometer 20 . I had to continue with an eye to gasoline consumption. Ultimately, saw Helder and helped him by giving him a bit of my fuel. "

    ^^^ Maybe HRC has a team of specialists back in Japan working on a retrofit of a hand washer as a fuel cell . :rofl

    like they did on Apollo 13

    edit ... that was funnier when the toilet & hand wash photo was still up
