    A toast to Ned (and his team), a man among men, an inspiration to others to reach for their dreams and not be deterred by harsh realities and the long odds of success. The dust has settled, the results have been recorded, and the only thing that counts in racing is that Ned WAS the best American rider at the 2012 Dakar, there can only be ONE champion!


    <TABLE style="MARGIN-TOP: 5px" cellSpacing=0 width="100%"><TBODY><TR><TD class=sqtdq colSpan=2>&#8220;It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.&#8221;

    OK, I'm in for the MEFO mousse...

    Now we just have to convince Ned to do version 2.0 of his famous Neduro's Tire Changing Class thread with the mousse technique :clap

    It's even easier than changing tubes, IMO.

    Ned beat you guys to it, he had posted it before he went to Dakar in his tire changing thread.

    Jason just hooked me up with my Neduro sponsor discount on a brand he didn't even intend to be included in the sponsorship. And he specifically said he wants to help get Ned out of the red.... So buy your Mefo Mousse from him and thank him again for sponsoring Ned.

    It's takes a village.

    Maybe take up the Mousse questions over on this Mousse Thread that I was pointed to a few pages back...
