    Sorry for the late reply...

    The TFTB "series" fell apart. These things happen although it's disappointing for myself and for those of you who contributed...its beyond my control as I lack the skillset to put the next book together. Layout, design, etc are simply something I am not qualified too do without making it half assed.

    I have the various written material along with the photos that were contributed. Now I am just trying to figure out the best means to get them out there for folks to read.

    Likely this will be in digital format of some form....

    Cheers, thanks for the interest and the patience

    wish there was a print layout guy that could give a hand since you are so far along... I totally understand how bothersome not getting something you wanted done can be.

    Cheers, glad you enjoyed the read.

    I am still humming and hawing what to do with the shorter stories folks contributed to volume 2. Our biking season is quickly coming to an end here in Canada so I'll have some time on my hands to figure out the best place to distribute them from :thumb

    TFTB Volume Two is almost finished...we expect to release it within the next couple of weeks. We hope everyone enjoys the read. This edition is a collection of stories from various folks. Two racers recap their Dakar 2013 adventures. The NorraMex1k, the Australasian Safari, the Baja Rally along with an excellent interview in regards to safety and rally racing....combined we feel the second volume of TFTB is a quality publication.
