Morning Stovey! (Coolhand from RDS)

Yeah I've just waded through the first 17 pages . Already pissed off the wife, juggling a baby and a 5 year old who wants to watch TV Peru with me. Wife is going x-country skiing this AM so I'll have limited time behind the screen today.

Why oh why didn't I (re)learn Spanish over the last year???

Go boys go!

50% sounds more than a minute, but yes.

It may have potentially made the Despres/Coma seesaw a bit border, but we don't have that now

But it will be interesting to see how it affects things and if it becomes the rally norm in the future

I have a theory also after watching Coma over the last couple of years - even numbers of days you win on the even days (start first on the odd days therefore) and odd number of days you win on the odd days, or as close to this as you can.

Now watch this theory get shredded

Nope it's a pretty valid theory - when we were watching coma & Cyril. I called it the seesaw effect.
I have the impression the added minute will stir things up and make it more difficult to catch up and shadow the stage opener this year. We shall see

Food for thought, but definitely an interesting development. Will it be for the first ten riders again this year?
Yep, it says the next 10 one minute and thereafter 30 secs in ones or in pairs - so will be busy down the field as ever

Justin's in the house, yo....



Ditto for me on the skiing and the Dakar Disease. I need to get out myself. But, there will be Harvey Wallbangers at a party tonight, so I can get refocused after a day of F5 and skiing. It's a tough life sometimes!

Happy New Year, my brotha!

Maybe Helder will have to pick it up then, or Barreda?
