Looks like timing is stuck at the first 5 riders

RIP Thomas Bourgin.

KTM Factory had last year from organization avgas fuel for high altitude, we got few liters from them as well, but nobody could fell any difference apart from that afterburn smells like shit.

One would say that injected bikes would have huge advantage, due intake pressure sensor the bike should adjust to correct air/fuel ratio, but than again, results never confirmed any huge advantage on these stages. The holy duo Coma and CD were upfront as usuall.
Thanks for the inside info!

That ought to be close to accurate, though yesterdays times on Fr2 got pushed back 15 min or so. It's been my experience that european sporting coverage is flexible, not on a rigid schedule like north american coverage. So don't be surprised when it's not on when they say it's gonna be on. It will be, once they've finished their espresso and chatted up the new intern.
Thank you for this info.
