    I know they have some that are very light grey, not sure if there are other color schemes. Also I don't think they give out jackets, just maybe sell the riders jackets at a discount.

    Either someome forgot to fasten the LH A arm flap, or they are using crap fasteners / ties.

    Doesn't bode well for a finish, I reckon :rofl

    How long before F5 will make an effort to attach a drone for each "picked" riders of the day. 2015-16-17?
    Attach it to the Iritrack signal and film them as they haul the mail. THAT would be the batcaves knees bees...I know in a seriuosly way te battery will turn upside Down before they´ve ridden 30min, but one day this could be possible.

    How many different viewers are we in these threads? I mean ADV´rs.
    I think in these types of sport the drones will have a great succes and make it more watch-worthy than only us crazy F5ivers. Think if you could have an splitscreen with the 2-3 top riders with GPS data on screen this would be the shit, i would never get any sleep.

    Oh well... so much for starting the f5irehose in conjunction with the rally...? :huh The first rder leaves the Rosario-pre- event bivvy/start at 4_20 am local ARG time.

    So now I will lock the pre-event thread and set it free (unsticky)... No sense having two going at same time. :1drink
