It reached fever pitch last year, when teams and other news sources started quoting F5 as a source in their releases... (INSERT absurdity emoticon here )

I'm sure headmaster f5lood or sensei PackMule can cite some more specific examples, but that's about the gist of the whole diseased f5enomenon...
I appreciate you sharing a little history. It really is amazing how the race sucks you in once you gain a small understanding of the event. Having a good group to share the ups and downs with makes it that much better.

Lyndon delivers another awesome call. Anyone else feel like you're there with him?


Stage 5 was billed as a "short" stage, but as Lyndon reports, woe is the competitor who confused distance, with challenge. Put into difficulty on several occasions, his enjoyment of the stage is nevertheless very clear in his voice (as Ned predicted it would be today). The competitors have a 0430 start tomorrow, compounded by a further two hour loss of sleep due to the time change in Chile. Get some rest, Lyndon, you'll need it for the marathon stage tomorrow!

Mods, feel free to add stuff from the Media thread, I have no chance to catch up with that in addition to all the rest.
THANK YOU for catching that up, Flood.


And THANKS to everyone who's contributing to the F5irehose.

That can't make living out of a Malle Moto box any easier (especially on the eve of the marathon stage).
