Same here. Wifey wanted to know why I hadn't come to bed an hour &l a half after her. I'm still in my recliner with the iPad in my lap. I think she thought I was watching porn since I had the columns turned down.

Try & watch the next segment without doing anything else but riding along. No breaks, no drinking a glass of anything hunker down & see. I was personally surprised @ how difficult that was to do.. Can't really imagine that for 13 days STRAIGHT

Did anyone else think how we, at the same time of the video, were watching numbers on Mischa's site and drawing conclusions? We tend to forget that most of us wouldn't last a day on this race, let alone 14 in a row.. These guys are superhuman, what a Herculean effort, I am in awe...

Once again MyWay, thank you for ruining my life, now stop it, it's not even funny anymore, it's almost February...

I love Bianchi Prata videos, and now at last he is releasing the full versions not just time lapse versions.

No doubt about it, its hard to concentrate for as long as these guys do.

the whole team work for him

This approach was a success. We had a great team spirit. because we did'nt fight internally we had a better atmosphere than ever before

Der Plan ist klar: Wir werden 2015 noch einmal mit Marc Coma als einzige KTM-Speerspitze in die Dakar marschieren. [/I]
We will hire another young rider during the coming year. But our plan is clear: In 2015 we will go into Dakar with Marc Comaas our sole No 1 rider


Q: will Husquarna field a factory team in next years Dakar?
No decision made yet. We have to carefully think about what we do with Husquarna. All we know now is that we will be competing with a five rider strong KTM factory team in the 2015 Dakar


Q:You could get Cyril back and spoil him as No 1 at Husquarna


Ahm- Husquarna is not desperate enough do do that.....
A very interesting and amusing interview. Thanks for that!

It also confirms some of our suspicions that Cyril really is a pendejo after all....

I forgot I was subscribed to the tube videos from Prata. Man those are cool.
I'd need to have Depends sponsorship though. I nearly soiled my boxers watching on the big screen.

Well I started with Etapa 3a (looks like its just the first part of SS 3, before the mountains).

23:30 #133 Toomas Triisa Comes flying past as if it were as Sunday afternoon jaunt, and Bianchi was standing still.
25:02 #69 Hugo Payen also comes flying past.
38:57 He passes a guy who over shot a corner and likely crashed. Seems okay.

49:00 He enters a refuel and 13:00 Minutes neutralization.

Have a look through his channel. He has almost every stage posted from last year. Most are the first 2 hours or so. I used a Firefox plugin to download in case they disappear...

I am sad to hear that but you can do something about it "unsubscribe" this thread and do not enter the bivouac (unsubscribe) to be productive.

I can only decode about 30% of Catalan but I think I understood:

- they ask about Google Earth studying the roadbook and she says that yes, they want to get as much info as possible about the next stage, so they try to have an idea on Google Earth but the time needed just to mark the roadbook and also paste the modifications is already too much.

- they ask if it is possible that she'll win ( a stage or the race? ) and she says (out of modesty or conviction?) that it must be impossible for her. She will keep trying to improve, though.

You know Dakar is popular when mainstream humorists start to pick on it

Here's one from the old Lisbon-Dakar days making fun of the fervorous fans (portuguese only, sorry)
