new version has started.
I'll miss Africa, and I already miss old music.

what made me happy is that Isidre Esteve Pujol, who had bad accident in early 2007 (some of you maybe remember that we talked about it here) which left him in a wheelchair, now returns to Dakar in a car.

there's also Takuma Aoki in similar story.

I try to follow it as much as I can. we get summeraries every evening (rather late) and jurgen keeps an update on his own website. but thats all we get [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img]

I mentioned only people who are in the wheelchair.

on eurosport you have day review + live from the bivouac, every night at 19.00 and 23.00 (-1 hour for UK)

it looks like it's pretty tough out there, with all these route shortening and stage cancellations. many big names are already out of the game.

still miss africa though
