hopefully he's fit enough to race (without endangering himself)

The special has started. Starting postions of the speedbrain riders:
4 Alessandro, 14 Paulo, 42 Joan, 141 Matt. Today it is full throttle time ;-)

Looks like they didn't contest Fish's starting position (or they did and failed). Bummer

James West

Does anyone know why James West is not featuring in any decent placings in the stage ??, remember a couple of years ago he was going be Cyril Despres support rider .
Is he having any particular problems or just off the pace .?
It seems a few "fast riders from the past " are quite a way off the pace , Burgland,Picco to name a few .

If it is a water cooled system check the pump. They are known to fail

That is one huge impact Flood. If it were a non competition spec vehicle (albeit support) then I fear the occupants would not have survived.

Thank heavens for well built Landrovers with cages, fixed-back seats and belts

Probably a change in objectives, initially hunger for getting to the top, probably currently to compete for passion for racing and Dakar ?
