The Start and finish of the MM.

We are back from our odyssey!!

We came back Tuesday night extremely tired and to be honest very disappointed, it could be the most beautiful event in the world like Enzo Ferrari used to say of the old race, but now days it is far from it, the organisation is very poor, the road book is not as good as yours the timings are horrendous, it is extremely tiring , there isn’t any camaraderie with the participants absolutely not social, if you are lucky and have no problems you may get 3 hours sleep every day, therefore it is not funny. We got caught by an unbeliable diluvio biggest storm ever seeing in the mountains about 250 Kms from Rome and stupid us we were not prepared and end up completely soaked and ever so cold, I was shivering, my goggles stem up and could not see anything, I took them off and the intensity of the water was so much that it hurt the face and my eyes and have to through the towell and Chris drove the rest of the way to Rome.

However, it is in Italy the roads are fabulous the cities and Villages you go through are fantastic, the public is very warm and over the 1000 miles there is not one kilometre where it is not full of people shouting and encouraging you, the police is wonderful and they also push you, but there were a few accidents and if the organisers do not change the present system one day will be a huge accident like in 1957, and then it will be forbidden again for ever. 

Said all this, we enjoyed it and there is an important tick on the list of things to do before before we kick the bucket !!

Looking forward to see you soon
