Can't wait to see the replay. Eventually everyone will we be riding a 2-wheel drive.

Hi Indy!

I don't have espn or the other you mentioned at home.

Is there any way by which I will be able to view this replay?

I have heard that he does not have the front wheel drive engaged yet, but will be using it in the upcoming sand stages. :cry:

According to Cycle News he was riding a standard WR450 and not the 2 Trac when he won stage one. :cry:

My understanding is that the 2 wheel drive kicks in with automatic detection or rear wheel slip. Last year David ran 2 trac every day. They may have removed the front end with a standard front end for some stages this year.
Band width and demand issues seems to be a problem with European web sites coverage :cry:

Crud... I thought that was the stuff that was on SPEED Channel. It was good, but I've seen it months ago.
