Nice work Ned!

A question:

Great interview, PM. I didn't get my peanut gallery question in on time, but here it is:

Is Ned getting passed by any of the cars? If so, I wonder how that interaction has been -- as scary as in Baha?

Just listened to the interview. Outstanding!

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?

I think the factory guys are running a racing cam, pipe, porting, ignition mapping, etc. Can make a big difference.

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.

Great report from Ned! Can't believe how much time he gave us. I think the comment from the Turkish rider about the difficulty of the section so early in the race is revealing. Ned's got his pace perfectly dialed in. Go man!
