Do people really understand what it is they want to return to?

It's crazy.
I think not.

If you built a tire to last the whole race, then I suspect lap times would be a LOT slower. What would be the point of that? You'd end up with a parade where the outcome is determined after turn 1 / lap 1.

Almost time for Monaco, not my favorite race, but always glamorous. remember they do P1 and P2 on Thursday, so set the DVR.

Michelle & I were in the principality last fall. Pretty cool to ride through, but it was hot + rush hour, so in the end we were glad to get out again.

headed through the tunnel (the wrong way)
