Your’s faithfully

If anything ever was more deserving of…OMG!
Since we know you are a knowledgeable rally rider, could you take us along on a instructional group ride the next time?

I think it;s a translation glitch... maybe he means how the rear suspension / extended swingarm hooks up... to my knowledge there is no advantage to having TCS on a 450 offroad bike for conditions such as dunes / sand / hardpack dirt

but I have been known to be wrong before

That's what I was thinking, maybe in my lingo it would be something like "how this thing hooks up"
Either that of he just put a serious mind f5*^k on everybody else.

It does say "tractiecontrole", which means TCS according to Dutch Wikipedia. Hmmm.


And Troy... T!M!I!

Good thing you didn't need to activate the emergency balise and talk to a French lady at ASO HQ...or have to wait for your water carrier.

True that.

Troy: I'm really pleased those Acronyms are DS your head

Like Troy I also DNF this last stage, due to home pressures, at least TSM went riding.

I'll put it up to bowing out in solidarity with Coma who is still the best out of the bunch by a mile.

Thanks again, guys its been fantastic! Well doen to all the competitors who finished, I'm really chuffed with the South Africans performance, and Sam is showing huge potential. If it were not for the new bike, Helder the underdog may have taken it away from Despres you know......

The stage is set for a rocking Dakar.

...no "ethnocentricism" here...quite the opposite actually!

Was just thinking it would be cool if he (and a few others) would come race some stuff in North America in between rally races so we could see them in action!

All of these dudes are bad-asses and it would be awesome to see them come mix it up in North America.

Mentioned it earlier, I think Sunderland and Barreda (after watching a ton of his videos) in particular would do very well.

IMHO it would be a great way to stay sharp in between rallies. Probably wiser to stay at home training, though (better chance of staying in one piece! LOL).

Actually... I was cleaning it, and set the balize off by accident. I had to leave a deposit with Veronique at the ASO front desk.

Original Poste - DezertFox Ralf Molander

With all the f5renzy I think we haven't followed up on the original poster progress.

It didn't went well for Ralf, unfortunately:

Quote:
Day 2 proved tough. After a small navigation error had a accident in the dudt at about km17. Front fairing broke. Continued until km70, where the rear sprocket ripped off the rear wheel hub. Was unable to repair and noticed something was wrong with the shoulder. Pick-up team diagnosed a dislocated collarbone, so it was over for me. Really feel sad about the dnf, but that is racing!
Quote:
Got back home yesterday and went to the doctor today, who removed 50ml of fluid from my thigh and changed the bandage for my shoulder. Luckily nothing is broke, but I will see a specialist on Monday about possible surgery. A big thanks to Lauttasaaren Liikuntakeskus, Mad-Croc, Finnlines, Motorrad and Acerbis for helping me out!
Quoted from his support group on facebook.
