Talini (58 years old Dakar "rookie") retired for exhaustion before finishing the stage and got earlier at the bivouac with his bike.

Also, even if he is listed in the standings as arrived at ASS, Alex Zanotti (TM factory rider) have been disqualified because did not reach the start of the special stage in time. He was the rider with Kevin and had a problem with his tyre as well.
