    Yep, was a real treat to watch something longer than the usual 10 minute 'highlights' reel.
    Lets hope this is the way it'll be in the future.

    Bike control - definitely a good argument for getting some trials experience.... Bloody brilliant riding.
    And Chris Birch has got a good career as a commentator ahead of him!

    But c'mon.... is it Dinner or Diner?? All the riders seem to call it Carl's Diner, so why can't the presenter? :D

    One day, at a bank just outside of Salzburg Austria, young Karl went to his friendly bank manager with a business proposal...:deal

    "Guten morgen Helmut, I have zis wunderbar neu idea for a motorcycle promotion ja...?! I take 1500 motorcycles unt their owners, unt hype zem up on kaffienated zoft drink unt bier for ze weekend! :D When everything reaches a frenzy,we select 500 brand new (mostly orange) motorcycles unt 'zere pilots... I put zem all into a mining quarry, unt lead zem through a rock aggregate tumbler/seperator for up to three hours on end. Zis result will be to destroying most of zem... Only pehaps ┬┤nine or ten riders will make ze finish and I will charge them all many euro's for ze privellige... jah?! :evil

    .... I zink my good friend Heinz will be wery interested to sponsor also... he have good price on spare parts, jah...?!" :evil

    The KTM Master plan, it ensures them at least a turnover of 3 to 400 KTM300s each year.
    Good for sales targets.

    What's with the 'Thanks for watching' message on the Romaniacs video??

    Anybody get to watch it? I turned on at 3 am... nothing. :ddog

    Hoping they set it up for watch on demand, like they did with the Erzberg. :ear

    Thanks Trev.
    Although the live stream was about 2.5 hrs long, so I guess we miss the preamble or something.

    Ah well, I know what I'll be doing this arvo :evil

    I down loaded it, 5 hours worth. Watched it last night & I'm shattered but at least my bike is in one piece. Barbaric pastime but very entertaining. Graham Jarvis, oh dear.. Poor bugger. I think their will be some scores to settle at Romaniacs..

    Yep, you can see the trials background in the way he (and most of the top guys now) rides. That's a top video.

    Erzberg - "The secret to success": mad/fast off road skills (to banzai the prologue course in order to get on front row start and make time on the faster linking sections of the hare scramble), this combined with trials skills and heaps of stamina/patience (in those boulder/rock slide sections)... and preferably a bike that someone else pay's the repair bills on... :wink:

    Graham Jarvis' total look of incomprehension when he first got the news at the finish (although the organiser kindly* :scratch let him complete the whole course before telling him?... after he apparently "missed" the checkpoint relatively early in proceedings?) was something quite unique to watch. Then the way he took it (resigned to the fact almost)... Shit what a champion/gentleman of the human race (either that or he could not fathom it was really happening?). I'm sure the majority of people in that situation had of thrown a ballistic tantrum of some sort. Jarvis just seemed to take it in stride. Kudos.

    *This is the part that I wondered about? Although Jarvis "missed" a checkpoint early on the course... it seems the organiser allowed the situation where he continued to ride the entire route (in the belief he was winning), instead of informing him of the "miss" at the first opportunity? Why? To make a better story/footage and keep some intrigue in the video/for the sponsors? It may well be that had Jarvis been informed at an appropriate point in time, he could have returned to the miss check, or perhaps he would have pulled out (if no chance of victory), or choose to continue and prove a point (as was ultimately the case).

    As it turned out, he rode the whole course, only to have the news dumped on him AFTER approaching the finish line (he never took the checkered flag). In contrast - Johnny Walker (who was running second on the track and eventual winner), was informed of the situation (presumably by one of his "spotters") out on course and continued unflustered... knowing that he DID NOT have to chase down Jarvis. Now that's not a "fair" playing field?

    To my mind... the organisers "used" Jarvis to a certain extent... One could say that the "organ grinder" made the monkey dance all day... and then withheld the peanuts at the end? :brow

    One can imagine that GJ could very well be a force to be reckoned come Romaniacs time... :nod
