    Will come back to that Mark asap. May be we need to coordinate with Paul and send four items there. Impossible to get hold off the team on the phone at the moment....

    Probably going to upset a few people but can you really race with a picture of your young family constantly within view? Surely it would create a serious mental distraction and rather than inspire you, actually slow you down. Perhaps in the first week of competition, that may be to your benefit, however what about if you had a huge close call and instead of instantly shrugging it off and immediately getting back to racing, you sat there with your mind elsewhere as you head for your next mistake at breakneck speed. Or what if it simply fell on the floor from vibration and created an error in judgement as you went fishing and fumbling for it. Take it out of the frame and keep it in your pocket, Tim. You're out there to race. Get your head in the game.

    Do you have a list of other competitors that are running your RB units? Perhaps the Factory mechanics can come up with a deal to borrow their roller units until spares can get down there. A Privateer offered mechanical help in exchange for running a different RB holder for a few days might be a decent deal. The downside would be that there may not be the spare bivouac time available from the mechanics to facilitate such a deal.

    Team had already started the switching so not going back at this time.
    I really appreciate everyone's help. Tony, Mark, Vladimir! :clap
    Arredondo or a Mexican friend may have been able to pull this through, but such is Dakar. Full of last minute surprises....

    By any chance does someone know where we can watch/download/purchase his film from last year? I saw the trailer and it looked really good and his YouTube clips from last year equally.
