    My money is on Lyndon, but then again I'm a little biased :-):-)

    Whatever the outcome, I'm sure we're in for an exciting two weeks as the race unfolds, both at the sharp end and also in the Malle Moto bivouac - wishing all the competitors a safe ride !

    Anyone got an axe so we can open up the f5hose thread if we need to.
    Must be almost time, and Troy has probably moved on from the XXXX to Bundy & Cokes.

    What's the penalty for missing the start? A carton of XXXX to the forum for every minute late!

    Hi all, I've been away from ADV and from the Dakar for a few years, but this year, the itch came back.
    A huge thanks to all who kept the f5irehose running and many special thanks to mischa.

    Looks like some of my old buttons are still working, so with Troy being AWOL, I'll try to switch on the ol' hose..
