Sounds like he is gearing the bike down a bit. I don't get how he can only go 125 km/h and the big teams can go 160 km/hr?

Great interview!

....also...Ned may have built his engine to last the entire rally, the top guys are used to changing theirs out a time or two.

Although the organizers did come up with some heavy penalties for changing engines mid-race this year...that does a lot to level the field between the big teams and the privateers, I think.
