agree!
If he is not mentioning it in the call in. It is likely not bothering him (more than normal).

No, I had a brief (non recorded) chat with Ned on another matter after his call in. That's when he mentioned to me that they discovered the steering damper problem in the pits.

Those of you who have been wanting some of this:




We will have details on how to order an official print soon. THANKS to RhodeHazard for the art, and for being a stickler for making sure the proceeds go to Ned's dakar fund.

Ned,

Great riding. Keep to your game plan. Be smooth and keep the rubber down.

It' a great drawing, but I think Hilslamer's name is misspelled on the sticker on the side of the tank. Just sayin'.

I just listened to Ned's call today. He still sounds very good considering the challenges of today's stage. Thanks so much for keeping us in the loop Ned and PM.

Nice! -- It would also make nice cover art for Deadly99's book.

how about some roost

This piece of art is GREAT! Personally, adding some roost behind that back tire might make it even better...adding some motion to the scene. JMO

Ned, great job pushing through the adversity today. That's two long stages in a row with significant challenges and you came out winning on each one. Keep on doing what you're doing...it's working.


any links out there for eurosport video on stage 8 ?
