Sorry if I 205'ed, but work & private chores sets me back from Formula5 a few pages. After copying the official announcment from ASO about the riders being time-compensated - it appears Coma is also on the list, but the big question is What Time compensation did he get? Given the fair-play concerns from Team KTM Racing it's quite an interesting bunch of rumours rumbling.

"COMMUNIQUE DE LA DIRECTION DE COURSE
Suite aux pluies qui sont tombees apres le passage de la voiture ovreuse, le passage de rio au Km 10,8 de la speciale etaite en partie impraticable.
Parmi les 1ers Concurrents, certains ont ete stoppes par la boue.
Apres le passage de 7eme concurrent, l'organisateur a modifie le parcours vers un passage praticable a fin de ne pas bloquer l'ensemble de la course.
En consequence, la Direction de Course Moto a decide de decompter le temps d'arret des Concurrents suivants:

#1/#2/#7/#/3/#20/#6/#14

Antofagasta, le 09/01/12 a 14h00"


Naff google translate, but you get the idea.

"PRESS RACE MANAGEMENT

Following the rains after the passage of the car ovreuse, the transition from rio to 10.8 km of special stage was partly impracticable.
Of the 1st competition, some were stopped by the mud.
After the passage of 7th competitor, the organizer changes the path towards a practical way to end not to block the entire race.
Accordingly, the Race Moto has decided to count down time of competition:

# 1 / # 2 / # 7 / # / 3 / # 20 / # 6 / # 14

Antofagasta, the 09/01/12 a 2:00 p.m.
"

Why couldn't they give us the exact time figures in the original announcement?
