    Here's my Prologue stage roadbook. It's really hard to read the small print, unless you're in Buenos Aires.

    On the interview that Gian pointed out on an earlier post Botturi sounds really enthusiast of the new Yammy!

    Please do not take offense to my comment, but I do not think you have much of a clue about the IOMTT vs the Dakar, just look at the average death rate of each event.
    Have you ever been to the IOMTT?

    Yup, we shall see, I doubt they will change, I have seen the speed of these types of guys in Baja, and I have seen the speeds at the IOMTT

    A couple of photos I took today when returning from work. Sorry the potato quality, my cam is not that good and I'm not a photographer :dunno

    They didn't let me pass, I guess that someone not related to the event walking around bikes ATGATT made them nervous xD

    So, only bike I could get a photo of:

    Things starting to get serious here in Buenos Aires... Went to pick up the bike to the port with Team Pan Am who were really kind to give me a lift and then started working on my bike together with the other 2 Italians racing Malles Moto, Francesco and Diocleziano. Gonna have to work a lot tomorrow to get everything finished!
