    Plenty of ocean waves, but not where these boys are going :clap

    After Egypt it looks like he may be on the fastest bike in the field as I don't think the HRC has its Dakar motor as yet?- good or bad?:D

    From the NPO newsletter, it looks like all the big names in motorcycle will be there, it will be like a mini Dakar!

    It should be a good preview of the forces before the Dakar

    Watch this space.

    The F5er preseason warmup crew will be on it, and we'll be able to watch it here.

    The boys are skilled, and will be posting on the fly as it happens. :D

    The Marocco rally web site will probably carry daily vids linked to YouTube, it's unlikely that sport+ would be live, but any additional streaming would be great, there's just too little on tv:cry - it will be in French of course :ear

    There is bound to be live tracking coming up on the day, but that takes me back to trying to listen to live sport on the world service radio before the advent of satellite tv:clap

    Cyril training in Andorra before he heads south...

    Notice how gracefully he avoids the mud hole at the end :D

    Easy peasy the hazard was in the roadbook,
    later on when the andorrean highway authority covered it in talcum powder the scene was quite different.

    Looking forward to seeing how the up and comers compete with the Mustache Man and the Mud Boy...this should be a good race and give some insight to January...
