    I've ridden in the dunes south of Douz - don't be fooled into thinking it will be an easy start Ollie! They might not be very high... but they are VERY soft!

    You really have great looking service truck!
    And bikes too offcourse. :nod

    Two trucks start their trip from Finland yesterday.
    Trucks are loaded with 8 bikes, 2 cars and one quad at start and they will pick up 3 more bikes on the way to Tunis.

    If i have understand right, they will meet Mattias in Germany?

    Here is one pic of my quad (i hope it's ok to post pic of quad to bike forum... :D)

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and add my good friend and riding buddy Polytimi (Timi) Kyriakopoulou, #24 on her FE450. She's too shy to come on here, we went for some casual prep riding last weekend:

    You will be able to spot her wearing one of these in the bivouac:

    And, no, I am not jealous, I am not jealous at all. Hope all of you lucky b*stards have a great race and hoping to join this one next year.

    That's the idea. The main priority this year is to get no pennalties, I'll be in the hall of fame.

    Sent you an e-mail on your webshop by the way. I'll bring some new Snyltkåsa's if I fin some...

    Yup, we prefer shitty Greek coffee chains to shitty American ones. :lol3

    Albania plans are still up in the air, us Greek riders need to organize some sort of a support plan / delegate a driver and then commit. Splitting atoms would be easier. I might just drive myself & the bike to Tirana and then hire a support package with one of the big teams instead (EAO, Torque, Desert Rose etc.).

    Spoke with a friend who is in Morocco -on the other side of the Atlas mountains- doing tracking duties for Edo Mossi's X Raid, apparently it is pissing down with rain and quite cold. :eek1

    Yes, that's right, Last year at El Chott Rallye it was very hard. Some told me that the big dunes in the south are much easier than the small.

    You can use us (a 'unorganised' group of 15 duchties) for support if you want. We have a big ass truck camper and trailer with all goodies. This is not a commercial set up, just friends having fun. Come to Tirana and we'll make room for your stuff.
