Ned's experience not over...
As I've said prior, It would be really great to hear from Ned at this juncture... a year removed and leading up to the 2013 Dakar. His reflections would be very insightful. I'd be curious as to what his outlook is, if he feels differently after completing the race. Does he yearn for another shot, or is it out of his system. What he feels are the characteristics of those who compete in this race year after year after year.
Just my 2 bits...
