I think about the excitement while he was riding well, not overly pushing himself but still moving ahead of other riders, and I hope he gives it a try again. For him I wish the extended drama had happened on day 10 rather than day 2, but at least it was a good Dakar story (kept trying far past when most people, including myself, would have quit).
Give it another try, Bill. It's only money and time and effort . . . well, a ridiculous amount of money and vast quantities of time and effort. I'm crossing my fingers and keeping my Bill Conger stick on my truck, just in case.
