    Caught on just in time for ES coverage..

    Lyndon, great post about bike servicing... Makes me want to be a better dad... Thanks.

    Peter's bike on fire, wow, crazy stuff..

    It was a total mess today, I enjoyed it thoroughly, and, no, no guilt at all.. :clap:clap

    ASO will neutralize whatever they feel will keep the race interesting, if it can be wrapped up in a nice page of the rule book... I don't think it has to do with pampering the French, they are an international business and with no tense competition the audience will turn their backs on them.. Even the 450 rule can be attributed to that... (by the way ES has yesterdays's stage showing! :huh)

    Today's clusterfuck made for some memorable moments (including preserving the hyped "toughest race in the world" image), I don't think they need to change anything... They still have 3 brands, and 3 stellar riders to keep the show going strong...

    Every francais that has a chance to win is within striking distance. There is no "other" reason to nullify results. It doesn't help their paisanos, it only hurts them.

    Food for thought....IF we have a gate...

    French doesn't matter.
    Ratings not the biggest concern.

    Thinking sponsors...Red Bull riders :nod
