Can't wait. Superhuman. As if it's not hard enough supported  :157:
Bookmarked this to watch later. Thanks TM  :028:

On the subject, just bought this book today on Kindle:

I want to retire, no longer required,
I want to get by without the man on my back.

What channel(s) is it on, haven't watched it for a couple of years now, TV coverage is usually a bit poor  :016:

I have to say that Stephane Peterhansel has to be one of the greatest riders / drivers in motorsports  :020: He has a combined total of 13 wins, absolutely brilliant talent and when interviewed comes across as a thoroughly decent bloke, here's hoping he wins it again this year.

You get the feeling he's seen all the "young bucks" come and go.  Cool as a cucumber.  :001:
