That sucks, Neil! Sorry to hear that. Get well soon.

Neil, you crazy man! Well, we'll still try to find time to connect. How long will you be in hospital? I'll make some time for a visit.

Agh! Bluebull, that's terrible!

(Though, admittedly, I'll be happy if you use a little of your extra down time to work on putting together more videos.)


Seriously, though, I'm gutted for you. I'm assuming this will push your Dakar bid into 2015.


Also, someone needs to wrap Don Hatton up in protective bubble wrap for the next 10 days.

NBC Sports to televise "The Dakar"!

Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere but they will "wickitup" once again this year! I for one am happy about that seeing the glass half full. I know it's not great but it's something...yes?

On the "related...unrelated" front,
Thank god they just picked up "Will Buxton" to join Hobbs, Matchet and Diffey for the F1 coverage. NBC moving in the right direction? I was gutted after the Brazil post race announcement.

I know...wrong forum...bahh.

AArgh. The dreaded Pre_Dakar injury-syndrome strikes again - this time enforcing an F5/Cmd+R ( Mac ) candidature from Bluebull
