I watched episode 15 yesterday, but today they took it off the Lyndon Poskitt youtube channel. Wonder why?

Wonder why the videos have stopped coming in?

Last is still stage 8

I suspect just a delay while they travel back.

It's always been 'slightly' erratic. He probably concentrated on the Ralley and now concentrating to get home.  :thumleft:

Ja, Oom Adie. I also saw it yesterday.
Yesterday's version had footage in of Joey and Greg coming across a rider lying flat on his back passed out and then helping the rider. It was really brilliant to see Joey and Greg being such awesome ambassadors and just awesome human beings.

The new version doesnt have that included. Joey just talks about it in the bivouac.

Maybe the rider asked to have it removed or something. Im not sure why they removed it.

Maybe the family/team of the crashed rider or Race director, asked that the images of the incident should not be aired? Will explain the edit of Ep 15, after the fact.

And then...
With all the tire cheaters issues, and Italian brawlers and press circus... maybe they are just holding back the footage and interviews to let this thing calm down a bit. You know, these Europeans are almost like the Americans. They'll sew you for anything

Ja I see the they edited out about 3 minutes or so.

I think I prefer the new edit. That incident is not really in keeping with the positive outlook on everything in the videos.

Probably a bit insensitive to the rider involved as well

Finally the last chapter of the race.

Pity that some riders chose to spoil the event by cheating and then being vindictive when caught out!

Such a nice, well put together series.

Well done to Lyndon and his team for sharing it with the world.
Joey you are a freaking animal, now stop hitting the other animals.

The whole team did amazingly well and congrats to all of them from the riders to support and media.

Those damn Italians left a proper bitter taste in my mouth, what a bunch of twassholes.
That guy should have taken his penalty like a man, he knew he was in the wrong.

The whole race was superb and hopefully the Races to Places team will return.
