Spent the last couple of hours taking photos of riders as they came down the big hill, absolutely awesome

Jumped the fence and spent 20 minutes with a British lad right oin the track, Robby Gordon blew by us (about 30 feet away) on three wheels, one of the coolest things I've seen.

Our drive today was a spectacle of scenery. Sand dunes on one side and breaking waves along the other. Something I won't soon forget that's for sure.

Ned looks to be on pace and should be here within the next 20-30 minutes. Camp is all setup and we are eagerly awaiting his arrival.

Go!! Ned Go!!

Can't wait to see the pics.

Hey you guys in camp ready to take pix of Ned coming down Sand Mountain? Probably hard to see though... Maybe somebody wants to trudge up to the top to get a pic?

From deadly!

"Picture taken from my lawn chair, the hill in the background is the one the racers are coming down.* Snuck out onto the course and filmed Robby coming by....awesome machine.* Blew by me, was about 30 feet away.* Very impressive."

Ned is in and doing great, a few minor mishaps (like fully sub merging the bike in a river and having it float away only to be rescued by locals, etc), bike and rider are in great shape

Off to dinner, damn I hope its not some seafood crap again....


Sun is just setting and the ocean breeze is going to make for nice sleeping temperatures.

Toby (Desert Rose) made it in before dark

Guys, you make me laughing for the last 20 minutes

I guess "Bordel", instead of "Merde", is better in this case

How do you figure that? They're hardly the same.

A whore house or an outhouse. You choose.

Curious where Ned got passed by the Hummer. Was it a 200kph pass? Or maybe when Ned's bike was taking a bath.


GO NED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What exactly is the job description of "Team Girlfriend" and how did you con Tim into taking the job??

Man that must have been an amazing spectacle seeing the racers coming down that hill, wow...
