Team update.

Kevin fractured his L2 vertebrae but is doing fine. He is on his way to Lima, but I was able to talk to him at the medical tent. It was on a steep dune drop (!!!). Paul Jay, other UK rider also crashed in same spot and is out with dislocated shoulder.

Marco and Mateo are kicking butt. Bikes are in very good shape.

Luis had problems yesterday with new carb. Swapped to old one last night. But he still out in the course and rumored to have seized the motor. We're standing by to replace it tonight.

Im too ill to read and need to focus on tomorrow's route -Thats my excuse and Im sticking to it. Especially after the F5ire in the hole episode this morning. Not only was the start delayed, but the tracking screwed up, the front running field screwed up, and but also plenty of casualties, latecomers, and burning bikes. I'll leave the f5IRE in the hold thing to TSC from now on

Not bad, eh?

Think he won a ice dancing competiton for the famous her a few yeas back.

An living (or used to) just north of Oslo, in the woods, he's also busy training; running, cycling, cross-country skiing and enduro during the year.
Look up the place he comes from. His family, parents, are running this cafe wich is a popular destination for recreational users; http://www.ullevalseter.no/

Eurosport Player

Does any-one know how I can get the eurosport player to work in HD it seems stuck at 1800kbps I'm watching the snooker at the moment as a test.

I've checked and have the latest version of silverlight and a line speed test gives me 6.5mpbs so should be OK to run the 5mbps for HD but it just doesn't seem to go into HD.

I think we need to agree on a few things after this mornings francas:

"F5ire in the" may best be left to TSC

"Fire in the hold" may be best altogehter to avoid, if not purely for entertainment purposes

You go ahead and consentrate, anything important happens I'm sure somebody will notify you. May even be posted on the internet!
