Indeed :)

So far I've always been hoping for those darn KTM's to stop from finishing, now HRC will get all my attention and voodoo charm

Poor Helder though

PRZYGONSKI (spell check?) got a start time (08.48u) this AM but hasnt made CP1 yet, any insight?

Apparently van Zonsbeek (unknown dutch rider, been to Dakar a few times as the onboard truck mechanic) made the start this AM but after a lot of trouble yesterday now is out of today as well. Permanent it seems, so probably technical.

A friend brought a gal to a beach house I was renting (way back when) and while sitting at the bar having a drink I noticed her Zippo was engraved "POCZEKAJ."

I asked, "What's a Pock-Ze-Kaj?"

"My last name (pronounced Po-Check-I)."

Pzygonski got food poisoning maybe? He has very good support and is normally up there in the top 5-15. Cant think it would have been a mechanical on the older KTM?


Darn the Brodo is very noticably absent, isn't he?

Don't worry fella's... he's with us here in spirit.

And guess work... whaddya mean guess work...?

Brodo's timekeeping practices were the closest thing to mathematical voodoo that you will ever come to...!?

He was the bloke responsible for ETA times at CP's that were before the field even started. The only guy who ever successfully proved that the sum total of consecutive stage times; 1 hour 43 minutes and 2 hours 57 minutes was 4 hours even! hence the term "Brodo-math".

But he was an enthusiastic, knowlegable and thoroughly entertaining freind. We are lucky to have had him as an f5 collegue that's for sure. Ride on Brodo... ride on.

Well said troy... I remember when I asked him about the voodoo math science and he looked at me with almost empty eyes and said: ''Well... I just have a feeling '' ...

Anybody know what on earth happened to that Honda?
