BTW - great post last night TSC. Really got me. Andy stares off to the horizon at full speed in an old Repsol poster above my monitor here at work everyday. I'll post a picture for you later tonight, if I make it through this stage.
Cheers sick_boy and to all the other who sent me a wave...

as doyle would no doubt agree with me, there is a certain pleasure derived from writing about that which one is passionate... and if that just happens to connect with other individuals who share that interest... well it is just doubly rewarding... so thanks. thanks for reading and thanks for being here...

good point.....

It is rocket science to US networks.

In some places during F1 races there were no commercials.

Well, the US has been economically more successful because the general premiss is the dollar is king and it rules all. This in turn has led to the soul being lost in many things. Think of the cars from the late '70's until probably a decade or so ago. Even currently the best looking American cars tend to be modernized copies of hot cars from the '60's and early '70's.

Many immigrants I've met are surprised at the priorities in the States. Again, economic dominance is at a cost of leisure and worker security. Life is full of trade offs.

Sorry! Don't want to take this great coverage in the wrong direction.

ADVrider is an example of the revolution occurring and we are lucky to be wise to it... or maybe we are just wiser then most. You choose.

Great post. In dakar coverage, as in Dakar, we find truths about life.
