Jarvis is riding really well, so he's a good bet .... but .... then there's always Taddy lurking - looking forward to the next event and the DVD :biggrin:

Neil, I trust you say this from a spectators view, cause there is no ways us mere mortals look forward to this as if it were a golf day.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

check this guide to the track out

and don't forget the Roof of Africa section - The one year a struggling competitor asks Darryl Curtis in that section - absolutely knackered - "Is Africa like this?"

Nice - the prologue looks quite doable if you keep the nose down, although steep hills always get flattened in a video

what's the prologue for if the next day's riding is qualifying?

I reckon if I was fitter and had more (some, or any at all) natural talent, I could have won this event 20 years ago.
