    how long do you need to replace a chain? Should be done by now I think. Just hope the chain didn't destroy something else!

    Fantastic for Pain! :clap:clap:clap Im really chuffed for him.

    "Congratulations Cyril"
    "Thank you but Im not sure for what really"
    Despres was not too upset, he said he was satisfied under the circumstances, but of course he was going for the win. For him 2,3 and 4 is neither here nor there really. He admitted there were some mechanical issues in the first week that let him down, but that is life and considering the new venture he was satisfied with he he ended up.
    He said its pity he will not be flying home with a trophy but that is life.
