    AArgh. The dreaded Pre_Dakar injury-syndrome strikes again - this time enforcing an F5/Cmd+R ( Mac ) candidature from Bluebull :freaky

    Give me a few, I can help with that.

    Edit:
    Here is a link to the gallery. http://cvestal.smugmug.com/Other/avatars/20289083_QcgfJt
    You can download images from THE BOTTOM of Smugmug gallery. (you will see the larger images are sharper) Let me know if you need any help.
    These are good for your profile pic. Not good for your cover image unless you edit into a wider aspect ratio.

    If i have time in the next few days, I will make some wide format images for your cover images. I just need to be careful with ownership of images and copyrights for anything I add to a collage.
    If anyone wants to contribute images you own, I will be happy to work with ya.
    cheers!

    You are welcome.
    I noticed your profile pic is a bit cropped. If you wan to see the whole image, you can hover over your pic, choose edit thumbnail, there will be a checkbox for displaying to scale (or similar). The whole image should show then.

    Rally ON!

    Hello everyone! :clap


    I'm shattered by the news of your broken tibia. Was sooo looking forward to hearing your road reports - since I will not be down there this year :cry (new baby girl! :D ).

    Everyone we need your help. Myself and 5 friends have flown across from Australia to follow the Dakar. The hire company we were supposed to get the bikes from is in Bolivia and apparently unable to to get the bikes to us due to a change in vehicle export rules in Bolivia.
    We have spent 10000 dollars each to do this and the hue company is unable to offer any help and just said sorry we can't help. Here's your money back.

    This is not what we want.

    Can anyone offer a solution to getting the bikes.
    We are prepared to buy them if required but are unsure of the procedure required.

    Any and all advice appreciated. Our trip of a lifetime is going balls up.

    Can you fly/rent a car to get there and then ride back to meet the race? Did you ask if they have any solutions or perhaps one of their competitors that can help?

    We are happy to fly the and buy the bikes. At a nominal fee but are totally unaware of what procedure is required.
    The tour company has basically thrown their hands in the air.
