It is emotionally hard to follow this thread. Amageza has been a large part of my life for the past three years until work intervened about three weeks ago :'(.

Enjoy guys. See you at the next one :thumleft:.

Camelman mentioned in the first post "We will also have a moving map display with the competitor trackers displayed. This will go live soon as well"

I cannot find the link for the tracker - can anyone please re-post it?

Just fnished scruteneering and Team Verve is ready to go. 30 minutes before the start. Exited and a bit nervous. Good luck to all my fellow competitiors.

 
There's a race of men that don't fit in, A race that can't stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and they rove the flood, And they climb the mountain's crest; Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood, And they don't know how to rest.                                                   Robert Service

I'll be the first one to admit I have no idea what's going on with the tracking.  Can someone please explain how it works as I would really like to follow the race

Does that mean that Carlo Seminara is at this stage more than 30 min ahead of the field with projected time of finish 05:23:29??

By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:

I also can't quite figure out how the new tracking works  ???

I just looked at a replay from 13:00 to 16:00 and from the replay it looks like they only did about 4km and then returned ???

As soon as the guys finish they get taken off the projection list. Peter How showed 2 days 8 hours and Roger 2 days 15 hours. Estimated. It will hopefully make more sense tomorrow. They did 2 laps of the same route today so it looked a bit haywire.

Had a rough day.  Was at the Parlotones concert last night, came home this morning at 0200.  At 0630 had a WhatsApp from Alexander to ask if I was willing to pre-run the time trial.  I assembled the CRF450X that I replaced the top-end of yesterday, changed a front tire to arrive at the start at on the prologue at 11:00.  It is pretty tight with lots of opportunity to wrong slot.  Important today will be to ride at a pace that allows you navigate with direction changes at the 50 - 100m marks.  It is also really important not to follow the guy in front, because if you get 200 m off track, it is very difficult to find it again with the numerous foot paths. Was about 26km.  Lots of haak-en-steek if you venture off track.

Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F
