More from Kev - The tire was destroyed when it touched the chain. Like Ned said, the bead won't hold. In Kev's words "it wouldn't stay on no matter how much French wire I found"

Ugh...

Quad 293, but it wasn't working.
He was towing 262, so they took that tank and pump, strapped it on his body and continued like that

Man this is frustrating...I cant imaging what must be going through Sam's mind right now. Hopefully he is staying calm and going to think his way out if it. If you cant ride back up the mountain, then you have only one choice. Go down and keep left (or right).
And if you end up in the wrong valley

That footage is tragic, forced to leave his friend behind. I'm wiping away a tear here.

Same thing...you have to go around the mountain until you find a place where they came down...hard to impossible to do.

@ work @ the moment, cant load channels ...

That is a bit risky though... you could end up either Flash Gordon or a fireball

If I got it right, still missing by having descended to a gorge are:
Sam
Grabbo
Pizzolito
Gonk
Pedrero Garcia

Faria was the first to get it wrong and is reported injured.

Is this sorta accurate?

And I thought yesterday was a disaster... Only 18 people in the ASS so far...and the lead times are out to like 40 minutes...

I wonder if they will cancel the stage? Probably not.
