    Hey, Duke,
    Have I missed the "pre-order" for the shirts?

    No; I'll take pre-orders throughout the race; It looks like I'll be printing them right at the end of the race, due to some family stuff going on during.

    :bluduh Well I screwed up a wheelie and shattered my tibia yesterday; going in for an operation at 8pm tonight. Looks like Im going to be screwed for quite some time.

    so no Chasing Dakar for me this time around. I guess I will try to be top F5ire hose finisher instead. I have a bivouac pass for Nasca if anyone would like it.

    Neil, you crazy man! Well, we'll still try to find time to connect. How long will you be in hospital? I'll make some time for a visit.

    Agh! Bluebull, that's terrible!

    (Though, admittedly, I'll be happy if you use a little of your extra down time to work on putting together more videos.)
    :deal

    Seriously, though, I'm gutted for you. I'm assuming this will push your Dakar bid into 2015.


    Also, someone needs to wrap Don Hatton up in protective bubble wrap for the next 10 days.

    Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere but they will "wickitup" once again this year! I for one am happy about that seeing the glass half full. I know it's not great but it's something...yes?

    On the "related...unrelated" front,
    Thank god they just picked up "Will Buxton" to join Hobbs, Matchet and Diffey for the F1 coverage. NBC moving in the right direction? I was gutted after the Brazil post race announcement.

    I know...wrong forum...bahh. :1drink
