I think you just swap 2 leads behind the roadbook and you're good to go. But talk about an ass-backwards way of doing things...

Eagerly awaiting Jen's end of day report

Live tracking is up over here but I can only seem to get a list of support cars on the right, despite seeing pretty coloured bikes on the map

edit: so apparently live tracking you only get if you pay extra, hence only a bunch of competitors showing up on the map. Out of our crew I can only make out Charlie in the support truck ...?

Go ADV crew

While we wait, another pic of the scrutineering queue from yesterday

BREAKING NEWS - from mid-stage refuel...

I have just had word that one of my featured riders - 20 year old Ollie Lloyd #332 has suffered some sort of incident/accident on the stage and may be out of the race... more info as soon as I have it.

Ollie on the start line this morning:

Go ADV crew
Charlie #75 is actually riding this year (on an XR650R) - Dave Peckham and Colin Pratt from RMS are providing mechanical assistance for team IYSK Wine...



Unfortunately only five of their seven riders made the start this morning, with Mike Krynock still too sick to ride, and Bart Combs electing to miss the stage today due to his still painful broken/plated collar bone.

On the plus side, it did mean that another ADV inmate LukasM could borrow some body protection gear to replace his own that he left behind in Austria by mistake...

Lukas still fitting his roadbook at 1.30am this morning!

Good news - Ollie is not hurt, but had a hell of a morning getting seriously stuck... (at the time we got the news, I imagine the WP control had thought he had retired because of his non-appearance at one of the check points?)

I have just heard he has just returned to the bivouac, and I will go and get the full story shortly - by the sound of it, he probably just wants to rest right at this moment!

More soon...

Desert bike

Curious to see the risult of the big desert bike during day2 and day3.
Riders would miss the Boyler pass.
Scuba and Silla pass in my opinion would be big challenge: a real nightmare!
Let see.

Ha! Yes, I just met up with ned in the hotel lobby (I have commandeered one of the niches as my little media hovel) and it was interesting to hear both he and Jean-Luc's so very different accounts of essentially exactly the same stage...

By all accounts, it was certainly tough on the riders of bigger bikes, even those with plenty of experience... it seems the Orga were not bluffing when they said the first day would be 'hell' - at least for some!

Plenty of stories coming in this afternoon - I will do my best to get the cream of them up here for you all as soon as possible!

In the meantime, a few photos from the start this morning:

#115 John Mitchinson was very pleased to finally find his missing 'lucky' goggles:


#133 Dirk Kessler prepping his GPS for the day's route:


#332 Ollie Lloyd in a pensive mood:


#86 Ed Taylor finally got his 300EXC running without boiling over:


#24 Polytimi and Snoopy:


#22 Guillaume Martens with a makeshift puck after a number of bikes domino'd in the soft sand, knocking his over too:

#97 Ned Suesse on the line:


[some of] Team Torque Racing doing their best impression of startled meercats!


And they're off!


If you're going to get away from the line late, best thing you can do is hoist a 100 metre minger for the crowds - I think this guy was still on his back wheel when he entered the dunes!
