It is good to see that Verhoeven has not lost his trailin and stuntin skills
In what order do they podium? I can't see a pattern.....
standard ASO operation procedure for 2016...
it's clusterf¤%k procedure Steve.
Over for another year. It was a blast as always to F5 with all the Rally Tragics.
Congratulations to Toby Price! He kicked booty this year! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy
Very happy to see more USA guys in the race this year and 4 out of 5 finished! Awesome job Ricky, Ian, Scott and Alexander!! CR gave his all
Glad to see Manny and Sylvain finish, what an effort for those guys! Respect!
Back to the Bivouac soon, but I'll hang around today and catch the news, hard to let it go you know...
congratulations to everyone that finished but also to those that didn't and congratulations to Toby

EDIT: sorry... my appologies to Chavo and Boliva for the wrong colour sequence... no disrespect inteded. // Troy
Ahem, that's a wrap! Let's see what happened in the last fantasy stage, shall we? Chief made an almost perfect lineup and scored a record beaking 77 points out of possible 80! Too old and INDY were only slightly behind, both scoring 70 points.
1st...Chief (Chief).............77 pts
2nd...Too Olds (Too old)...70 pts
3rd...10to1 (INDY)............70 pts
But who is our imaginary Toby Price? Here's top 10 of general classification in reverse order:
10th..Mudderfacers (Mudface)...439 pts
-> Rode in 15th place or thereabouts for most of the race, only to get a solid finish which places him in the top 10.
=> Kind of like Brabec...
9th...DeserTales (stuckthrottle)...453 pts
-> stuckthrottle had a brilliant start, leading the pack for 3 straight days, only to have some mechanicals after and finished disapointingly in 9th.
=> Alias: JBB, only man enough to suck it up and finish the race!
8th...Team Cahn (Sundowner)...454 pts
-> Nothing special until the rest day, Sundowner had a better second week and finished 8th.
=> Thats like totally Farres Guell dude.
7th...Too Olds (Too old)...461 pts
-> Riding in top 10 for majority of the race and even got a second place today, he completed the 2016 Dakar with no major setbacks in a respectable 7th spot.
=> Just like Van Beveren.
6th...Quietus (Quietus)...474 pts
-> Quietus was within striking distance to top spot for the whole race. He must've went off two stages from finish though and limped across the finish line in 6th place.
=> Sounds like Meo to me.
5th...Nanana Vrooom (tibx)...490 pts
-> Winner of two Bolivian stages was in the lead up until the penultimate stage when he ran out of transfers. Some bad results at the end and it was only enough for 5th place.
=> A bit like Price, but with a Meo finish...
4th...10to1 (INDY)...496 pts
-> With two second and one third place INDY was in the top 10 for most of the race. Had a very steady race without ups and downs, combined with a push at the end secured him 4th place.
3rd...Chief (Chief)... 509 pts
-> Chief was not really that good in the first week. After the rest day though he got 2 wins and 3 third place finishes which shot him on the podium! If only the race had couple of stages more...
=> RL alias: Helder Rodrigues
2nd...Go Hard or Go Home (Coak)... 521 pts
-> Coak was on the virtual podium since day 3 and yesterday he was even in the lead! Not quite enough though as someone has snached the win from the front of his nose...
=> Štefan Svitko?
1st...Gordito (Lana)...525 pts
-> From what I can tell the only chick in the pack was modest at first, only riding in the 15-20th spot. With a lot to do in the second week, she WOT'd the donkey and crushed the oposition right on the finish line! What a champ!
=> Hmmmmm, if you managed to make a Laia and Toby hybrid... The result woud be AWESOME!
Congratulations to all of the winners and thanks for playing everyone! That's all from me for this year, hope to see you back in 11 months and a couple of weeks!!!
PS: We all got beaten by a chick! And if my memory servers me right, last years' winner, soraia, was a babe too! WTF guys?!? Chick-gate?
Where is the number 1 decal?
