    I found a gas station along the down slope, 18km from the top, so he should be ok. Who can get the message to him? :lol3

    It´s a matter of being awake long enough, then everywhere looks fine. Even a MRE can be the spot. :puke1

    In another note regarding a video of a drone in the Pre-event thread:

    How long before F5 will make an effort to attach a drone for each "picked" riders of the day. 2015-16-17? :deal
    Attach it to the Iritrack signal and film them as they haul the mail. THAT would be the batcaves knees bees...I know in a seriuosly way te battery will turn upside Down before they´ve ridden 30min, but one day this could be possible.

    How many different viewers are we in these threads? I mean ADV´rs.
    I think in these types of sport the drones will have a great succes and make it more watch-worthy than only us crazy F5ivers. Think if you could have an splitscreen with the 2-3 top riders with GPS data on screen this would be the shit, i would never get any sleep.

    Give us F5ivers long enough and we'll figure it out! :getiton

    Imagine every rider with a small drone hovering around, Elite riders with 3 or 4 at once for different angles, all at-speed. F5ivers would explode with too much video data!!!:kboom

    Hogwild, love your work mate.

    Allan Roberts #165 facebook page.

    "There is nothing I can say to describe today's events-it's bigger than anything I've ever seen, the crowds, the amazing people, the atmosphere, so that's it, the final parade and crossing the podium, the riders briefing, the photo of all moto riders, it's all done. My road book is marked, my camel back full and my bike ready, it all starts tomorrow-early. My start time for stage 1 is 0527, but first it's 405 km liaison just to get to the start of the special, then 180 km race stage(special) and then another 205 to the camp."

    Oh well... so much for starting the f5irehose in conjunction with the rally...? :huh The first rder leaves the Rosario-pre- event bivvy/start at 4_20 am local ARG time.

    So now I will lock the pre-event thread and set it free (unsticky)... No sense having two going at same time. :1drink
