    watching #63 Cornejo on the RMZ remount his bike on the podium by getting rolling then stepping up on the peg before swinging a leg over because he is on the shorter side brought to mind another fellow who rode bikes that seemed impossibly tall for him

    #‎Dakar2016‬

    Competitors briefing this morning... More strict rules that apply for everybody, amateur or pro. Sealed technical limitations, markings of wheels and tyres, parc ferme on Marathon stages where no service can be performed by the crew or assistance... More like Dakar in Africa!

    From shoestring to slipstream, always behind a other rider, catching no wind.

    Gotta feel a bit strange for Marc. Lots of thoughts going through his head right now I'm sure.

    Brabec cranked out a few wheelies for the crowd, repping the old red white and blue lack of restraint with a page from Rubby's play book maybe?

    I can't really bitch though since it made me smile

    So many accomplished riders and well prepped bikes this year... the top 50 is deeper with talent than ever!

    Marc and Alain Duclos (#20 Sherco) exchange words... so many emotions... riding compatriots since the African days...
