    Before this explodes. Would/could someone plz explain what went on between JBB and Speedy yesterday. At the end of the stage there were a conversation between the two guys...and JBB looked like he ignored Speedy.

    BB has passed Svitko and is gaining grounds on Meo. I wonder what his plans are for a rear tire tomorrow...

    Looks like he can use a water carrier's tires,

    From the regs:
    Zone situated between the Time Controls at the Finish of one Stage and the Start of the next, where all Riders regroup; this zone is located in the Road Book. In the Bivouac, servicing is free between the Riders / Competitors still in the rally and with vehicles and/or people registered in the Service category.

    Wasn't there yet. Was an extremely hectic year for me and I haven't been in touch with them whole year. Maybe a little to late I tried to contact them, but haven't heard back yet. I guess that will be 2016 if I hear anything at all. Let's wait. In the end they manage to work things out every year, so I bet I will get in touch too.

    Btw... asking because everything is as always? :lol3

    Last 4 years, with the last year topping it all...

    I have huge respect for what Tom has done in Japanse F3 and WTCC, but since he found out how to make use of the media(or their manager for all I know), things have gone overboard. I cannot listen to the radio or open a newspaper and I see the twins... Cannot even take a dump without seeing their faces.

    Last year he got DQ-ed for coming in late and missing a whole list off waypoints (he even documented it himself) and somehow still started all the stages after, weird huh? Then was pissed of when he didnt get a medal.

    Total disrespect for the rules in the name of 'journalism'... Pfff.

    Jan Vesely, CZE
    He´s riding with a team (support vehicles etc.) but all work on the bike he does himself.

    Tonight the bikes get locked up (aka no service...in parc ferme). I thought I read they got 30 minutes to service their bikes before they hand them over to the org. I suppose a wheel swap and oil change will be done.
