We're packed loaded and on the road. Looking forward to watching the racers come down the "big hill"
We really appreciate the updates. Here's to a fun day!

So if the ASO is subtracting time stuck in mud from a couple of competitors, Ned should also see his stage time reflect that, correct?

How do you say "I got stuck in that mud as well" in French?

Gatineau French... many expletives needed before explaining the situation.

Coffee flies all over the place when we talk. We're more careful with beer though.

Unfortunately, Ludo, John is quite right. I'm still stuck here at the frigid RallyRAIDio headquarters, while Ted (Deadly99) and the others are living the dream. Ned's been doing a fantastic job with call ins -- I've been able to do some two way interviews with him which is a new dimension since your RallyRAIDio days.

Hoping to have video ability for your return to Dakar.

Watched Cyril and Marc come in to the finish where they got mobbed by journalists. It was quite amusing watching Cyril get interviews, I didn't understand what they were saying but it seemed obvious as he was getting progressively more oissed off as time went by

Spent the last couple of hours taking photos of riders as they came down the big hill, absolutely awesome

Jumped the fence and spent 20 minutes with a British lad right oin the track, Robby Gordon blew by us (about 30 feet away) on three wheels, one of the coolest things I've seen.

Our drive today was a spectacle of scenery. Sand dunes on one side and breaking waves along the other. Something I won't soon forget that's for sure.

Ned looks to be on pace and should be here within the next 20-30 minutes. Camp is all setup and we are eagerly awaiting his arrival.

Go!! Ned Go!!
