Preparing for the Raid De Himalaya 2013

My plans for racing in the Raid de Himalaya 2010 didn't quite work out due to a very non-avoidable reason: My only brother in law, decided to tie the knot on Oct 10th, which was the same day as the Raid was flagged off from Pinjore Garden, in India. I couldn't have chosen to go for the raid and miss my brother in law's wedding, but since both the events were not too far from each other, I was able to go and meet all old rally friends, and spectate the first stage of the Raid. It was very exciting.
