Professor Duro,

This is what a cell cam and a plasma can do.

Story line that morning was Ned - last American rider. In case you don't have the tape.

I interviewed Ned a couple of times during his rally, one of them just after he came off Stage 12 where he endoed on a 300m downhill from hell. You can find them in these two vids I did.

Ned, thinking back on it almost a year later, you had your head 100% in it, so focussed yet always had the time for a friendly chat. Thank you for sharing your experiences - You will always be a hero in my books.

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...

As always there are a number of Dakar threads going on. Ned posted his thoughts yesterday.
