Give them some time to learn what a rally is and they'll win.
Don't put the blame on the world.

Hate to say this but NO American will ever win the race. ASO don't run a fair game as has been proven year after year and time and time again. I'll address this in the book as I haven't quite figured out how to express this situation yet. I'm not knoicking the race as for 85 percent of the competitors it is an awesome race and the ASO run a top notch event. But for those fighting for a podium finish...well....

That's a shame.
The money required to do this is astronomical.
To be treated like that afterwards is just a slap in the face.
Maybe if most participants decide to boycot the race one year, it will have an impact on the organisers.
Other than that, it's Status quo.

Even though I really like Ned, any chance we could get a report on what's connected to that arm in the upper right of this photo? Maybe some detail shots?

I would say that if things were fair that the USA's best bet for a win would be Quinn Cody on a bike or Robby Gordon in an auto. --- I guess Robby said it best; They can kiss my ass!

Well that's a wrap for today, time to get some shut eye

We're mostly packed up and tomorrow promises to be a cool day, assuming no mishaps tomorrow we'll be on the podium early afternoon and then off to a hotel for a long overdue hot shower, bed, air conditioning, a meal that we can pick ( freaking seafood again tonight which means bread and cheese for me ), and if all goes well no more dust for a few months until the snow melts in Canada

Wow, what an experience

Looking forward to sharing it with everyone via the book. Many gigs of photos to sort through and many pages of notes.

I came here with some pre conceived ideas of what this would be like and in many, many ways it has far surpassed those expectations....BIG TIME

A better group of people I couldn't have dreamed of sharing this with

Thanks for following along and I hope you enjoyed the reports from the bivouac and hope you'll enjoy what I plan to put together in the form of a book that will share my experience down here in South America with the Rally Pan Am team.

Adios amigos
