I don't want anyone to feel obliged of course, but if anyone is looking to make some sense of it all and is able to help in any way, please donate just a small amount...

The RMS/IYSK Wine team take over what I have affectionately commandeered as the 'media nook' at the start/finish hotel in Douz:

Not sure what is meant by a "distinctly second-hand looking 690RR" A few stickers peeled off...hardly a big deal!!!

I wish - currently working on the post event summaries for all my featured riders - will post them up here of course together with some fresh photos (if my photobucket bandwidth hasn't cried 'no more' by then!) Jx
