    Layer Cake winery sent all the sponcers 6 bottles of wine, not Saucelito Canyon Vineyard. For us to send that many free bottles would probably be last years profit. Thank you Layer Cake and Go Ned.

    This is only my second 'F5 Dakar' and was one of the best motor sport racing experiences I've had.

    Ned - you're a hero for taking the risk to follow a dream and seeing it through so beautifully! :clap :clap :clap

    Ned's friends - thanks for you help with bike prep, training rides and the friendships that mean so much to him.

    F5 Crew - continues to amaze just how 'real' the Dakar experience can be behind a keyboard. Thanks to all of you for your contributions, antidotes, humor and support for Ned's effort.

    Cheers from Calgary, Alberta.... :clap :clap :clap :clap
