Whew!

Clif Notes caught up, MOST of the F5irehose between meetings, no lunch catchup available, and viewed both France 4 and Eurosport Highlights torrents over dinner, awesome footage! Wife rolls her eyes, but after years of this madness, has mostly come to accept it Brushing up on my French in the France 4 broadcasts.

I'm barely staying ahead of the F5sweeper truck.

Tomorrows pics and vids should be epic! "they will quail" over the steep dunes!

coasting down the bigass dunes will save a lot of fuel.

If the HRC riders push their bikes up hill today they'll not run out of gas before CP1 i bet....

I'm still trying to catch up from yesterday, I have no phone coverage at my work site and I had to go out all night last night...

So can I cut and run or do I have to go back and read the past two days posts?

Oh.... poor little Carlos has a (WRC) prima donna moment... and (vaguely) threatens to pack up his cape and go home, like a grumpy little matador...

Standard sainz tactic, threaten to exit stage left dramatically to get officialdom to tippy toe... did it in WRC, did it at VW...
