Still like him.. And the stories told by those that met him in person only confirm what i felt about him and he is a really fast rider..

He even has the correct goatee (as pioneered by Flexo in Futurama!)

Is KTM maybe trying to sell the point that because it was their motor they built, that was in the race properly scutineered from the outset, that there should be no penalty for Despres? They got lawyers, I can see them trying this tactic, dependent upon how the rules are written, in the french version.

How's that for a conspiracy theory?
Penalties are up, Cyril got 15 minutes


Edit: well they were an hour ago...definitely showed him with a 15 minute penalty

I understood the "original" translation perfectly but it just struck me too funny not to comment. At my advanced age gotta jump on any chance for a laugh.

First hand from a third party who has had contact with CDP and to a greater extent Coma, not a single negative comment on either, but guys you don't become no. 1 in the world at your sport without having a bit of attitude at times

I predict CD wins this stage by 11 minutes, +/- 30 sec maybe more

well looks like i had the wrong goggles on looking at Misc site, it looked like he was making a minute up on each waypoint, but he's been mostly 2-3 mnutes ahead of Barreda, so let me amend my prediction to be more like 6-8 minutes lead today.
