Whew! At the pace of the Pre-Event thread already, and the other supporting threads, this will be a tough F5 race field. I'll be at a disadvantage with a full-time job but will hope to catch up a bit in the eves. Even with my wife knowing I'll be "not there" for 2 weeks I will no doubt be left for a backmarker by the F5aliens this year.



Happy New Year!

Heh. I guess this was after his "Boy I'm drunk" tweet and deleted since? Shouldn't be tweeting under the influence.

Good luck, Chavo!

I wonder what number Kurt will start with, 2 is the only lowish number open.

I say 29. No way the ASO assigns #2 to a rookie, would they?

Last minute stretching of the F5ingers, I imagine. It's going to be a war out there.

Ha ha, I suspect that means you know he is # 29

Anyhow, Coma is now off the list, but with Faggotter at 123 and Ben Grabham 57 there will be plenty of pressure coming from behind!
Rod at 123 could be a worry though as both he and Ben are top 10 quick!

Mind you with SS1 only being 13 km it's going to be stupid out there if positions are decided on this - F**k; seconds could put you 30 places down on the start of SS2!

Of course the higher numbers will have less congestion up front (if any at all over the 13k) and a serious advantage over the slower riders, but they will all be full on for the 13k

I am sorry but it seems I have already missed something.
Is the bikers running reverse order for first special?

It may be a TV deal, so they can show last 20 starters in bikes and first 20 starters in Cars!!
