I thought I was going to have an easy day and be able to able to watch the races. I was absolutely wrong! The teams from Mexico, Spain and Ecuador kept me busy most of the day with different details here and there. I hope they just settle down and let me watch starting tomorrow.

Du to this excess of work I could only take a few pictures. You can see them here.
