so if skinny has made the safe and sensible call to sit out the storm, wtf has sofiane done?
That's the big Q now, is it safe to carry on? It's a real shame Jay P is back due to a mechanical - this is the kind of moment in a race where he's got all the experience needed to really test others. He's seen it all before in the TDR for example, or SRMR (and Sofiane has a 16 day rookie TDR run under his belt).
Rooting for James, more so for bringing pretty much a road bike to this event ... have to say though, hat of to Sofiane's bold move and I hope it doesn't backfire on him.
