FR2 vs FR4?

How does France 2 compare to France 4?

I can only watch so much vid each day and France 4 has been awesome so far. Eurosport also has a few things not seen on France 4, but as the announcer said on France 4 "Less blah blah, more images!" That's the first one I catch up with each day.

Caselli !!!!!

What I like about the Caselli story is that he has been ride'n for KTM for something like 10 years.
...And KTM threw him a bone for it (well, and he is FAST).
You dont see that from riders or manufactures much, not in the USA.

Could this mean even more support from KTM for the Caselli / Quinn run at the Baja 1000????

I know Quinn wants another crack at the Dakar. How would it be if the next top contenders for Dakar were American Desert riders.

The biggest benefit would be that the media would show humble but well deserving racers representing Amer. instead of a whinny spoiled brat (I put that as nice as I could).

RIP Thomas

They amended the rule at the nightly riders meeting (well they did in the french version as some reported not hearing anything about it).

We're confusing Parc Ferme and Marathon. Parc Ferme is really only before and after the race. Before to make sure no mods happen between scrutineering and the start, and after to ensure bikes in protest or under suspicion are accessable by the ASO for technical checks but not by teams to perhaps "fix" things before prying eyes can see them.

The marathon stage allows for any maintenance, but the maintenance must be carried out by the riders or anyone entered in the race as a competitor. Basically, all the riders are Malles Moto today. Last year, we saw that wasn't the case because of a last minute shift in the support route to coincide with the riders liaison saw many teams create a pseudo bivouac jst prior to the real bivouac which, in a sense, invalidated the "spirit" of the marathon stage.

What I am trying to verify is whether or not the riders get their white, Elf trunks in the marathon bivouac. If so, I would suspect among at least the 4 factory riders, KTM would have one for tools, one for parts, one for clothes/domestic essentials, and one for more parts. Every rider gets a trunk, not just Malles Moto unless that rule has changed. The ASO also transports one set of wheels for them.

Verhovering:


J'ai attaqué fort depuis le départ, car la Yamaha, avec l'injection que l'on peut régler, ne souffre pas beaucoup de perte de puissance en altitude... J'ai rapidement rattrapé Esquerre et Despres qui m'ont laissé passé sans problème, très sport avec le vent et la poussière, et ensuite j'ai continué à attaqué et rouler fort jusqu'à l'arrivée.


I attack strongly after departing, and the Yam, with injection that one can regulate, did not use a lot of fuel at altitude. I quickly caught Esquerre and Despres who let me pass with no problmes, very sporting with the wind and the pushing, (?) and so I continued to attack and roll strongly until arriving.
