I'm trying to figure out when I have to crawl out of the kip and a 09:25 SS start time sounds a lot better than 05:45.

Edit: Dayum! 'd on something that doesn't happen 'til tomorrow. I'll turn in my flat-bill cap.
The SS will be followed by the liaison so its an early start.

I can't be doing with this work lark!

Tried to catch up at lunch time.... failed - still 30 pages behind

Tried again after work before dinner.... failed - now 43 pages behind

After dinner I was 57 pages down and I've only just caught up!

This work thing sucks. I was looking forward to try and be F5 midpacker this year. Looks like I'm sleeping in the desert.

(yesterday he didn't mention that he got gas from Pizzolito, that was a quote taken from some other place)

Today I returned to spend some time in late stage of the same reason. arrival at the bivouac was with Honda technicians trying to figure out the source of the problem and I am sure that everything will be solved. The Dakar is still at the beginning and as I gave notice to this year's edition will present difficulties far greater than those of previous years. I am confident that we will overcome these initial complications and we can show all our value.

Where can I stream event coverage in Canada that has british commentators. Dakar.com has a terrible voice.
