The coverage is amazing from land cameras and much from helicopters with interviews and opinions - and flashbacks to earlier events - this is the 25'th edition.
I am drooling every night from the action, the scenery and the need to do something like that once in my life.
I'm opting for Meoni to get do the triple this year but he had a problem 3 days ago and lost time/ground to Sainct.
What these guys do in the sand with their KTM's (there is virtually no other manufacturer bike being raced at the sharp end) is simply unbelievable.
Any other fellow droolers out there ?

Meoni is riding V-Twin, while Sainct in on the single cylinder 660. Meoni was truly driving flat out on yesterdays stage on the highlights, trying to use his horsepower advantage to make up for lost time. In this type of racing, anything can happen, and both of these rider's have lost the race in previous years while in the lead. Should make for an interesting finish.

Apparently the North American sponsers for most of the top riders don't see the return on their investment.Much like the ISDE.Sad.
