What are the odds that NO-ONE will stop to help Cyril ever again who is not his water carrier.

Very poor form, especially as he is asking for a time waiver/protest as the mud hole was not in the road book.

If he helped the other bloke out his request might be looked upon more favourably. Yet which side of the Atlantic you live seems to be one of the biggest advantages in lodging protests.

Is that what was all in the front tire of that 400? It kept on oozing from the spoke nipples. I ended up pulling it apart and cleaning everything out with kerosene. I couldn't figure out what it was.



BTW - Go Ned!

Neduro stage 8 call

Ned calls us after what would turn out to be a very controversial stage for the frontrunners. He had his own challenges, including a stage that was very fast and admittedly not his most comfortable zone. A followup call reveals that his steering damper had become disengaged, a sketchy prospect when running 120kph through fesh fesh embedded with hidden rocks! "This isn't racing, Ned says, it's praying!" Well-done to bring it home safely, Ned.
