Few on Robby's planet would know anything about Dakar until Robby started racing it. Just wait until a couple of cars in the top 10 DNF, you'll get a press release how Robby fights his way into the TOP 10!!!! Spin, spin, spin.
Well, there are plenty of Robby type people on this forum that get the perpetual leg hump, some of them are Dakar riders. So what really is your point about spin, it's our world now. Did you expect to sway opinion or was it more about feeding your own ego? A guy that raced the MX1K last year was talking about his class win. After doing some research, I realized that the class only had two riders in it Spin?, Truth?, Other?

He's there and you're sitting in front of a computer in your underwear, just another nobody with a bitter attitude

I'm with you Vx, S/B is OK, his knowledge of off road racing is huge but his internet deliveries could use a little polish
I think he be fun to have a beer or 6 with him in Baja, bull shitting around the camp fire for a few hours.

You just got to love how a video of Robby, from inside Robby's car can't be shown because he doesn't have the Right to show it on HIS own website by the ASO....

Misery Goat, Hi!

You're welcome!

So my question is, was the anti-freeze leaking from the heater/defroster, or could it have been the radiator that cracked from the nose drop into the sand, and the anti-freeze was running down the outside of the heater lines?

Thoughts?


Liz

My guess is the radiator, mostly b/c i heard them talking about repairing the radiators in the bivouac.

I think if you do some research, WADA showed up to the AMA Supercross(Back when they ran it) and tested all the riders over two events, and found nothing. Zero. Nada. So, they gave up on that realm because there is no cheating there, in any form they recognized at the time anyway...seems like they would find the same in Dakar, or any other non-mainstream motorsport at the professional level. At least, IME. There is no getting stoned, tweaking for the duration of the event, or getting all 'roided out to win your class in the Dakar; you do it on so many levels that the human body could not need any compromises and the event is long and intense enough that no drug or cocktail could maintain it's effectiveness without other issues for that long.

That said, WADA is clearly a business and not an enforcement organization, so letting someone get away with it and then choosing a scapegoat makes them look all the better. Like any other "enforcement" organization, the casualties have to justify their existence, so there is a functional level of whatever goes on that they become the modulator of, not the eliminator of.

if the WADA is just a bizness, who cares what they think?... they're talking about $$$ penalties in court, which i really don't understand. i really don't give 2 shizzits about what Ford thinks, you dig?... one of the bike riders they keep talking about his spinal compression, and he's riding w/a metric buttload of painkillers onboard, what's the WADA got to say about that?... they were showing one of the riders w/a handfull of something to combat the altitude problems, where's the WADA?....

i just got a real problem w/the WADA and how they've finagled their way into these sporting organizations.... i would really hate to see them in an event like the Dakar, so don't get me wrong... it's a total sham what they've done to lance, but that whole drug thing in the TDF is a sham too, just don't spell anybody's name wrong for the publicity, you dig?.... you don't hear about the WADA and the NFL now, do you? they go there, and probably somebody's gonna be sleepin' w/the fishes.....
