Faria, with the broken rim gets to be 2nd in the special, and gains 3 minutes on Chaleco.

Well done Cyril, muddyboy
I've just forgot all the mud situation.
Master strategist (possibly the best of the post modern Dakar era - 2000+), great rider and the PR dept' have gotten most of the mud off his countenance (after last year) with his (back to original) on camera personality, interviews, tweets and general demeanour.

A good day by Cyril Despres!
