Guido Meda and Loris Reggiani. They are the closest thing an Italian commentator can be to South American ones. I hate them

I think Valentino Rossi should retire. He is not the same anymore, and should retire before ageing in the racing tracks, being a sitting duck which is what he'll be in 3/4 years.

Just my 2 cents.

Only if you use roadheaders in soft soil.

The record for a 9~10 m diameter tunnel (single track railway) is around 100m in 24 hours.

On the other hand, in very difficult soil this can drop to 40 or 50 cm.
