Firstly, ASO have not yet published any withdrawals list. No great comfort as this is normally published a day or sometimes even two days in arrears.

However they have published PDF results up in the french section, and these are the results which will go on the notice board in the bivouac.

Here you go:

Stage results with penalties

Overall results with penalties
http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2014/docs...nts/CGM_01.pdf


And our boys Gilbert and Frederic are marked as in albeit with late penalties



The shocker of the results is that Michael Metge got slammed with a 41 minute penalty. This would almost certainly have been for speeding somewhere in the liaison or special in a speed-controlled zone. These are clearly marked in the road book.

So he has been knocked all the way down to 114th!!!

Horrific for him no doubt, but it shows us that the field is actually rather fast. I have not checked if he will be reseeded for "safety reasons" but he can certainly ask, and he can also pay a big cash deposit and lodge a protest with the organisation.

So... what it means is that the overall results now look like this:


Well done Grabbo in at 10th, you aussie bastard!!!

Now I need some clever guys to answer this question: What are the classes in the columns 3-8?

Group is yellow (1 for professional) or white (2 for amateur), the classes are numbered and then split out in the subsequent columns.

Stand to correction here but I think "M" is for Malle Moto, "F" is for Female rider, and "1" is for production class?

What are the other class numbers?

Now what really excites me is that Brett Cummings came 64th but was SECOND in the Malle moto class!!! Absolutely fantastic!!


Below are the results other riders I have been following :
