    A dock worker starts a racing truck/car/bike and rides it off the boat?! :eek7
    I didn't consider this before, but it sounds like a terrible plan.

    Only four days to go and i've already had a major technical mishap!

    Moved house on December 18th but British Telecom won't have my phone line (and more importantly) my superfast broadband installed until 5th January.

    I've been following this thread on my rapidly dwindling data allowance on my phone, that doesn't get refreshed until Saturday or by using a rather inconsistent free wifi connection at home. I've popped into work for one day so I'm enjoying a decent internet service at last but my new job doesn't allow me to follow the F5irehose like I have in previous years as I'm stuck in a large open plan office so ADV has to be restricted to lunch times only.

    At least I have managed to get Eurosport Player working OK on the meagre wifi, so I'll be able to catch up on the first couple of day's highlights (Darts and Snooker not withstanding) before my interweb access goes full throttle again!

    Hey ho!

    That Ridgeline seems to have come up a little short on cargo space. Do the bags on the curb belong to the water carriers? :)

    The ridgeline is perfect, telemetry shows it is working just as it was engineered :lol3

    I challenge anyone to find a cooler (current) racing car then that Peugeot.
    It's a 12 year old boy's dream car.
