One more..

Has anyone else seen anything else about Yamaha Team Bolivia? They had the big press conference about having a rider on a current WR450, a Toyota truck and a Hino (support or race?) truck.

But then I saw this today, The rider listed as GAS GAS:



Not withstanding some sort of joint factory venture, I'm thinking something very strange happened last minute...
And I don't see a start or withdrawal today from Fuentes 118.

And we thought ASO was confusing.

Judging by the measly plate of fries in front of that Honda honcho at breakfast, that'll be the infamous F5 floodGates of conspiracy rather than the foodgates of gastronomy.

Of course Grabbo is an Aussie. But the reports had him as a Brit a few times today, which is where this joke started.

Maybe he got a real up-close close and personal look and can confirm it was definitely a bull. And I'm not talkin' about the horns. Cue the red cape and matador gags now:

"Well, if you're gonna wave a red bike around like that, señor…"

Faria:



'It was a day with many changes. We started at high speed, then areas of stone and more meandering route and also fulfill the first kilometers in the sand, passing by the beautiful gray dunes. I already knew it would be a day where it was important to somehow take a strategic position: attacking in the early stage and then relax in the area of sand, where I could also gain some time to a few adversaries. '


'It was a positive day in that chapter and puts me in a good starting position for tomorrow where we meet a long special, with almost 400 kilometers and where we will climb to more than 4 000 meters of altitude. It will also be the first half of a marathon stage so it will be important to manage the wear of the bike. '

a LOT of bikes still out there.

Its now going onto 9 PM and I suspect we may see the most No of riders out on a Stage since the start of the South American Dakar. (I believe it was 24 in 2010 on Stage 3)

Any word on our mate Garry and the rally princess?
