    Translation:

    Now awaiting what the committee's verdict is.
    They're interrogating everyone now.
    And then we'll know within an hour whether we've won.
    Fingers crossed.

    Great spending time with y'all....hopefully I'll have more content to add next year. Thanks to all the thread pushers and starters....It's still a bummer not getting good coverage here in the US, but have the F5 to turn to is so much better!!! Cheers!!

    :huh Better luck next time :wink:

    After 2.5 weeks 16 hours / day Dakar it will be silent next days / weeks. There will be times I drop in here and see the Dakar thread is frozen :cry

    Thanks once more for all support! It was a pleasure and I guess I really have to return again next year :deal :freaky

    Enjoy everything you do in the meantime and see ya soon! :D

    how does anyone run off the road during normal daily driving and hit a pole? He just had an accident.

    yes, they're a few days behind at this point, but webventure.com.br has a ton of new photos posted, most from stage 11. lots of fluff from the bivouac, which for us outsiders is interesting to see, but not very noteworthy. a few actions shots to get us started:

    Well it's over. Although there were a few relatively quiet days after a crazy first week you guys and gals really turned it up in true F5 style the last couple of days. Well done to all who finished the race and to those who contributed so much here. I guess it's time to get back to doing things to get myself riding again. That means getting snow and ice off the driveway. :bluduh

    I just want post that I think Kurt Casselli would have killed the field this year if he was there. It was pretty obvious last year that he was the fastest rider in the field, and not by a small margin. He just was not not quite skilled enough yet for the nature of event.

    I see him as sort of a Gaston. But of course, Gaston got to dominate after a stellar career in Motocross GP. Kurt didn't get the chance.
