You know how, if you slightly overshoot a stopping point, you hold the front brake on, compress the forks with a lean down and then as the forks rebound you pull on the bars and push with your feet. That put my right calf in the perfect spot to just touch the header lightly and ever so briefly. That burn was a right royal PITA for the entire week of the rallye and took a while to heal afterwards because it kept getting torn up while riding each day. So my tip for the week - DO NOT RIDE IN SHORTS EVEN IF JUST OVER THE PODIUM. It's just not worth the risk of compromising your riding for the rallye proper.

While I'm here - Happy New Year everyone in ADVRider world, and especially those riding in, or F5'ing in, the Dakar 2012.

Dude. How did you get the phone call? What am I?

He did so well today! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Hopefully one of us will get to speak to him this afternoon to see what his thoughts were on SS1.
