Hahaha, I was one of the post mudgate CDP haters last year but I can't help myself rooting for him now. Us Brits love an underdog (souschien? ).

I still thing water-carying concept is dumb if you have two or more strong riders. Each should support the other to maximize the chance of win.
I don't know, IF Cyril had mechanical issues (who knows maybe he had "Inca's revenge", soory no offense to Montezuema, and had to stop and crap every 10 km's ) then the water carrier concept is brilliant and well worth it as he will take whatever he needs from his WC's bike. Several times over the years the WC has "saved the day" for a top rider and enabled him to podium.

For this to work the WC should be a top 10-10 rider. Getting a free ride as a WC isn't a bad gig

If he keeps dropping down the standings as the others come in, he's gonna be looking for a re-seed.

Interesting! I thought I saw some race officials marking the tires and the rims at some point last year to avoid that the tires would be moved around between vehicles. Anyone have any info on that?

Despres' stage finish continues to plummet with each rider that finishes....showing down to 34th at last look.

I know mostly its just for us, and the Team F5 reporter fund is a good idea, but its something to start pushing somewhat earlier than mid race


We could probably get some art thats not too year specific, threreby being able to use it more than once? or at least with small changes.

Also, apparently Apple wants $20 for the use of their command logo


So lets continue to cogitate on this one, eh?
The reporter fund idea is for next year. Just trying to get it rolling now while interest is high, rather that starting up next summer when there are fewer eyeballs watching the rally threads.

I think the year-neutral design is a good idea.

Looks like Stan Watts, Tim Foreman and James West are all set to better his time. Vive les Anglais/Irlandais!

Not so much to avoid between vehicles, but to avoid what Coma did which was change the tire/wheel altogether with one that was not in the race. (the mustachioed man episode)
