    That is too weird! I can't see that small of a caliber round making it threw his helmet after it hit the pole then went threw the top of the truck. But I have seen stranger things. The thing that gets me is how everyone just kind of stands thier and looks at him after he slumps over the steering wheel.

    WOW! I am glad that the shooting was just a prank. I to was looking into the validity of the video. The first thing I thought was strange is if this is the start of the race, would'nt you be all buckled in? With a five point harness how could his head rest on the steering wheel? Also the officials should dock him with a time penalty for a prank like that. Not only for scaring the s**t out of the officials, but if the cars start every 30 sec to a 1 minute then he is holding up the rest of the racers behind him.

    The "Euro's" don't have a monopoly on stupidity.

    yep - stupid stunt. Time penalty though? Throw his *** out of the race altogether - if this was really on the start grid there is no room for BS like that.

    I would guess that this was some sort of commercial for that website and was completly acted out and not part of the actual race. Why else would something like that be posted on youtube and then you go to another website to see a continuation of it. I bet they have seen an increase of traffic to their website.

    Someone please link it properly. I park in the blue spots so I'm a little slow. Besides, it's 1:30 am. Who wants to think at this hour!

    I put together a quick blog with embeded video off of youtube. It's an easier way to see some of the videos on youtube. There's lots of stuff in the early stages but not much since then. My guess is that there aren't very many people in the middle of the dezert or in Africa taking home video. Word of caution, most of the video is of Gordon. I haven't caught much of our other American drivers, but I'm still looking. Check it out.

    nice blog- I have no idea how finding all those videos and then posting them to a blog could be "quick", but thanks. It's like TiVo for surfing the net- All the best stuff while skipping the rest.

    I've updated the blog that compiles some of the video on YouTube specific to the Hummer. Including a new video from Stage 1 where he was stuck in the mud.

    There is also some footage of the passing on Stage 5 from a helicopter viewpoint.

    I'm not linking to the RGM7 stuff from BobbyChuck - his videos are all compiled nicely here - http://www.youtube.com/rgm7

    bump this thread up - I added a couple of Stage 7 videos. I'm not sure how long they will be on YouTube as they are the part of the ASO feed and technically they shouldn't be up there. I haven't been able to see the VS. coverage, so some of this may be duplicated.

    We finally get to see Blais ride a bit and then they interview him about stopping for the rider that went down. As the commentator says in the video..."we salute him!"

    Bricoop - did you even bother to watch the video? Robby drives off the road and crashes into a ditch.

    Aloha
