Eh? Why oh why don't they pick another time of year...??!

I mean, if your emerging, alternative "Indi" band is planning a concert, the same time that Aerosmith, Foo Fighters and the 'Stones are conducting a mega-tour together... it is not too surprising that the gig don't grab too many folks attention... is it?!

Just sayin'...

Eurosport are dedicating a whole 15 mins a day, between snooker, ski jumping and biathlon - not too bad as the main event only gets 30 mins!

The Eurosport coverage from last year was great but as Troy points out....its simply a minor distraction due to it being F5 season.

Once the F5 withdrawal starts late January it is nice to sit down and watch the Eco race...

Patsy and crew are participating this year

Yes it´s true but since he lost his biggest sponsor in Dakar, maybe it´s easier to get sponsorship in this race where he probably will be among the best.

Ullevålseter defies terror threat in the new rally
"We are trying to enjoy the days we have together," said the wife Mette Solli.


-The mind is in Africa
Once again after Christmas and new year celebrations must give way to a dangerous desert race.
-I'm trying to not let it go beyond the Christmas celebrations, but the tanks are in Africa.
"We are trying to enjoy the days we have together, but I am of course prepared to it he will be on is dangerous," said partner Mette Solli.
Will keep on to over 50
Together they have a daughter, Alva for two years, but even though he has filled 45 years and is the father of young children, have Ullevålseter no plans to turn off the engine.
-After the Dakar in the last year, I thought it was the end of it, but then I found a new thing in Africa, and now I can hold on to a few more years.
-But now it's not long until you are 50 years of age, shoot Solli lattermildt in.
-No, then. It is important that he does what he want to do. As long as he is here on Christmas Eve.
-It sounds like it will be a few more years, "said Ullevålseter is a good idea.
