    The Dakar, and Toby Who ???

    TOBY PRICE !!!! Go you good thing.

    Toby hails from the Hunter Valley, just up the road from me.

    With one Stage to go in the Dakar Rally he is about 35min in front in the bike division and will need to suffer a serious mishap to lose.

    and I'll repeat..... "GO YOU GOOD THING"
    Cheers
    Kev

    D600 : D7200 and too much stuff to list

    He at least deserves a Civic Reception in Singleton, his home town.

    I've seen/heard plenty of publicity for this. Guess it depends where we look. Long distance bike riding isn't exactly mainstream entertainment and therefore won't get major coverage in Australia.
    He gets major credit in the world he lives in though (and so he should).
