    If Mr Landh gets his navigation worked out he will be on the podium. I've seen his race records during the winther, he must have been racing every weekend since October!!
    Go young man!

    :lol2 Brilliant videos dirtpunk, even my wife (who is very anti rally :rolleyes ) was watching with a smile on her face.

    I love your attitude: :razor Riding in the middle of the biggest storm the British Isles have seen in years. That's my kind of ride!

    I do have one question: How the hell do you dry out a sparkplug in weather like that?

    Have a good flight and when you have to dig deep, and you feel like you can't anymore remember we are cheering you on! :clap :clap :clap :clap :clap :clap

    Torque Transfer!

    Update from the road - pt.1

    After leaving England at 3am yesterday morning with Torque Racing in two vans, we rendezvous with Mattias from Offroadservice.SE (Sweden) somewhere near Spa in Belgium at lunchtime and transfered some of the UK bikes into the support truck for the rest of the journey down to Tunisia...

    Donna and I are now in France, sorting a brake issue with their new van (grrrrrr) in a Dijon dealer - before we have to get to Genoa in Italy to catch the ferry tomorrow morning - just how 'International' can you get eh?

    Plenty of drama already on our side, the rally hasn't even begun!

    Cheers Blueball.

    My plan is to roll around complete all the course and get every checkpoint!

    From what I've heard getting all checkpoints will mean a healthy result! :wink::wink:

    Hi Paul

    Pleased to see the usual meticulous level of preparation.

    Good luck to you and Gabe on the event.

    Don't go injuring yourself though so you have an excuse when the Bagoadi's whip your a** at the PKU!

    Have fun

    So jealous of all of you who get to go this year, the 2013 edition was one of my most fun weeks ever! Awesome riding in amazing scenery, and lots of cool people who share the same passion to meet from all over the world.

    Good luck and have fun! :freaky
