Good to see a Brit win. :152:  :celebrate:  :152:

Might of been a different result if they rode all the stages and definitely would of been a different result if Honda hadn't  :172: up

Well done that man, but shame on Euro sport for lack of coverage.

Didn't watch it this year, tried setting the vi-day-o recorder, but it wouldn't accept series record, so I gave up, did I miss much ?

I wasn't following daily, but I do catch up on clips that show up showing the action.  Found this one the other day, forgot to post here.  Really nice overview and compilation of the action in HD.

Amazing to watch these guys run at those speeds.  More incredible, how they recover from an incident that would have most people stuck for an hour in seconds and keep going.

Brilliant vid Gus, thanks for posting.

It beats me why no one seems to make a 450 rally bike, what ever happened to "race on Sunday and sell on Monday". Honda have just done a 250, should have been the 450 IMHO, and KTM should know better too.
