agreed, thats probably the reason for the change on CD's bike.

I believe it will go well, even though its far.

Pizzolito:

I had an accident as well damaging my roadbook
Took a corner too fast
I did not see CdP, I was monitoring my ride. One need to be careful in the sand and slippery conditions.

Israel:

It was a fast stage I passed a few guys, then I stopped when
my bike got water sucked into my engine in a crossing that was between 0.5m and 1m deep!

Got a lot of help from the spectators to go go go!! and I left.

Impresionante: the No. people in the dunes

this country has great support for the riders.

Look forward to CHile.

Thanks, Sometimes I don't get it if I can't see the lips....

Also, the pre-event photos of Cyril's bike still had the JVO screen/fairing combo on that he used during testing all through last year - it was only at the last minute that his bike got a new 'face' in the form of one-piece nose cone and single headlight...

French interviewrr to Barreda: "If I tell you : MOoo, what do you say?"

He said he had a good stage but after the dunes 4 bulls were on the road and he could not avoid one. He hurt his back but it does not think its is too bad and his focus will be going forward to consolidate his position.

My guy feel is that he will take it easier tomorrow.

I think I recall a report earlier - much earlier - that he had mechanical problems.

I also see that Marc Guash has made it into ASS, +1:33:55.

As far as the screens go. Clear screens can be made completely indestructible.
Clear with such a large sticker on it is not that clear at the end... only the very top remains visible...

I wanna see CP's condition...

EDIT: Guasch probably had a problem. May be he crashed too.... 1h33m55s behind...

Lexan is a good choice for clear. Fiberglass or CF with an epoxy resin is a better choice for flexibility.
