    Finally caught up. Just in time for the start of the second week:huh

    I have to go back to work tomorrow morning so that is the end of staying up until 2am watching the stages here on the F5irehose. Lucky I have the Dakar app on my phone and the Cliff Notes to keep me up to date.

    Go the Aussies:clap:clap:clap:clap

    G'day F5ers, first post for this year.. Thanks for all the great coverage I've managed to keep up with the f5irehose but there was not enough time to participate, I hope this week will be better :)

    Let's have a great rest of the race :clap:clap

    Yesterday EuroSport told they will be broadcasting snooker again. :eek1
    Lets see how this messes with the schedule.

    Although I know it won't make any diffrence, if Dakar is only 5 minutes late I'll write them a complaint letter. :deal
    It's pretty anoying when you have to go to work the next day and have to wait for 12am or latter (I'm from Europe) to see some footage.

    Let's just hope the best.:clap

    SS7 start is delayed due to fog. Helicopters are grounded.

    Cyril for a stage win today? Is Bam Bam able to control his nerves and stay in 2nd overall? Duclos opening the stage, we'll see how close to alien is he already.

    I see only Pain from the top dogs with 15 mins penalty up until last night... Did he change engine? Any others?

    Probably yes, I don't remember him with any other penalty and 15m is for the first engine.
