Het Ted, you had a chance to check out those VW pick up trucks the organizers are using? Thoughts??
I bet not as oissed off as the guy he left in the mud :huh
Go Ned Go
keep it coming Ted....
Ned is in and doing great, a few minor mishaps (like fully sub merging the bike in a river and having it float away only to be rescued by locals, etc), bike and rider are in great shape
Off to dinner, damn I hope its not some seafood crap again....
Sun is just setting and the ocean breeze is going to make for nice sleeping temperatures.
Toby (Desert Rose) made it in before dark
Thanks Ted!!! Keep up the good reporting.!
Guys, you make me laughing for the last 20 minutes
I guess "Bordel", instead of "Merde", is better in this case
How do you figure that? They're hardly the same.
A whore house or an outhouse. You choose.
Curious where Ned got passed by the Hummer. Was it a 200kph pass? Or maybe when Ned's bike was taking a bath.
What exactly is the job description of "Team Girlfriend" and how did you con Tim into taking the job??
Man that must have been an amazing spectacle seeing the racers coming down that hill, wow...
Though I'd share this!
Awesome! I am so psyched you two made it to Dakar.
Ted, you are Awesome!!!
From theTouratech blog and Motorcyclist article.
"Ted has done everything he can do to try to help me out. Even though he's not required to or anything he always gets up with me in the morning, he cleans the bike before Tim works on it sometimes and he eats with me, etc. Those things are not only helpful but they reinforce the fact that he's pulling for me however he can and that's awesome. "
No mention of the Speedo
Thanks for taking care of my friend!
Is there any comment or discussion where you are about the Peterhansel behavior, when he pushed (with is car) a guy with his bike, trying to cross a small river ?
+1, very curious about this myself. If I had been waiting on the other side of that river, I would have at least reached in and decked the driver or codriver as they finished fording the main flow of the river. I can't believe that was on camera and they have not been reprimanded for it in any way. That was absolute negligence for the safety of others, complete bully behavior. They ought to be DQ'ed at the very least.
Yes..I agree that motorcyclist should be heavily penalized for getting in the way of the French Hero.
Not to pollute this thread with F5-lore, but word is that Peterhansel had to apologize to the rider at the bivouac - and ADVinmate vbenedic had the same thing happening to him with worse results - he's out of the rally.
I'm french and Peterhansel is not my hero anymore.
I spoke with french people (living in France and watching french TV)... not a fucking word in any media!
(and no more here in Canada)
Thanks, I coul dnot make much sense of the F5irehose banter regarding the topic and it's not mentioned anywhere else. Pitty they slap him on the wrist with an apology and he gets off easy. I have done enough racing alongside cars to consider them incompatible with motorcycles on any given course, and seeing things like that just cement that feeling further in place. A person in a cage, no matter who it is, always seems to lose a little regard(or a lot...) for others around them and it can be seen at the highest levels of racing - just like this.
Rant off. Sorry.
