"Finally we all had a good nights kip instead of stressing about a million things. Today we have riders group photo at the Flag Monument then riders briefing etc. another long day with a 3.30 am start for us. Not had time to even take photos"

I see Brett has the KTM card so he can buy off the truck but in his box he seems to have air filters, oil, oil filters, throttle cables, shifter and a bunch of other spares, can he not just get those from the truck and use the space for other stuff? Or is it just for big spares like fairings and sub frames?

David's nav setup. Very similar to Brett, except he has elected to put the switches for the spare ICO on the left rather than the right, and he is using an ETRF Heading Repeater (http://www.ertf.com/uk/produits.asp?categorie=&souscategorie=12&soussouscategorie=&num=164) rather than an SPOC 201.

First riders are on the podium - it must feel great. Terrifying, but great....
