Spoke with Chavo for about 20 min at the service area between SS3 and SS4, saw the mousse pieces! Tire was OK tho! Said he was REALLY happy with everything on the bike.

He did well this afternoon, but missed a waypoint I think and got a 15 min penalty.

I was out about 12 km from the end and Chavo was actually the first to come by on the 2nd round, knew where he wanted to go and rode along the side of a dune to climb to the largest crest! I had trouble getting my 650 up and over the regular way!
