Somewhere in between - untangling kids from endless reams of ribbon/ wrapping paper undernath a decorated pine tree, drinking more than the required daily intake of eggnog and the excesses of eating far too much around a table of assorted family and friends - the f5 brainstrust (usually spearheaded by doyle) will meticulously assemble a thread - commonly referred to as the;
ADV f5irehose OFFICIAL 2014 DAKAR COVERAGE thread.

On the first page of this stickied and much revered thread one will find a guide and links to just about every relevant website, tracking device, intenational news conduit, streaming sites, twitter, facebook and youtube access point - known to humankind.

In short... watch this space;

Sometime between x-mas and new year, the "mutha ship" will land... untill then, the hopeless cases amongst us engage in all kinds of pre-Dakar anticipation in the "Pre-Dakar preparation" (Moto stuff)", "Dakar 2014 on 4 wheels" (Auto stuff) and "Video thread" threads stickied provisionally here at the top of the RACING forum.


yours truly,

the f5 fraternity.

The official RACE COVERAGE f5irehose is being prepared in the back corridors of cyber space as we speak. It will contain the traditional doyle address to the f5 nation, general introduction, as well as assorted vital links and information on all things DAKAR-esque... just likeit usually does! Plus some vital statistics that have been posted here in this thread, on what is undoubtedly the BEST most inf5ormative "pre-DAKAR" thread the collective ADV/F5 community has ever contributed!

The official RACE COVERAGE thread will be "stickied" and viewable by inmates within the next12 hour period... BUT IT WILL REMAIN LOCKED - only for the tampering of by the F5 Dakar/racing forum mod team in preparation of the big kick off!

In keeping with the tradition established in 2012 & 2013 the f5irehose will open to coincide with the Start podium of LEG ONE (sunday 5th of January) as rider #1 departs on the liason! In true fire in the hole spirit.

prior to that the pre-event thread will fullfill the continued role of f5irehose warm-up and during sturdays podium ceremony f5estivities, will be the place for all those; "oooh...! is that a new bandanna Cyril's wearing...? " or; "oh dear, just look at those Argentinian Quad riders will you...? Will they ever get their decals on straight... I ask you? and the "bet ya' Ryubbie jumps the podium.... duuuude...!" posts that we love and cherish - DAKAR colour commentary the way that only the F5 can...

And in that respect, the official f5irehose race coverage thread will again be just that, a representative coverage of the DAKAR race itself - f5 style... both in real time and cyberspace... that's just the way we roll!
