    :dunno Looks the usual alien concentration to me...

    On the other hand, Despres this year is all genuine smiles and happiness. Taking the pressure of having to be number one and knowing that the consequences of mistakes have less probability of being fatal must be a good thing... I imagine his family must be enjoying that as well.

    Hey All, checking in for this years edition! I'm ready to do some racing, keyboard style. Good to see all the usuals and sad to be missing those not here.

    Good luck to all the competitors and to all of us F5ers.

    Paulo Speedy Gonçalves posted this pic today on his facebook with the following comment: "We're ready, at our maximum strenght. No comments accepted regarding our different heights." :rofl

    He's in good spirits - I hope Lady Luck will help him just a little bit this year. Go Speedy!

    I recall speaking with Chavo some time ago about the same thing and he said there are some benefits to not running elite. They get put on the list but I also believe there is some input from the riders themselves as to whether or not they want to run in the elite group. It is not an automatic thing based off previous results.

    For the F5noobs could someone explain the list and what the advantages and disadvantages are?
