Speaking about ES coverage with CK doing the voiceover....
I'm pretty sure you are right; I think I read in the Torrent forum from a few folks that it is highlights only.
My impression of the highlights is that they are doing every other highlight, skipping them outright.
I watched stage 4 and was caught off guard when they started talking about it being a marathon stage. I had no idea because this wasn't mentioned in any previous highlights. [I got to thinking that the MS was supposed to be late in the dakar but then I realized that Cyril was on a Yammi this year so it made sense that they would do it early in the race while his first engine was still fresh...no?]
Anyway, I am having such a hard time following this Dakar by watching only the ES highlights. Major disappointment.
