Hello all. Today's stage went a little better. The Dakar is fifteen days of racing with many imponderables and we have to be very calculating in the way we approach. The most important thing is not to make mistakes, especially in navigation. I am pleased to have been able to recover significant in today's stage, and tomorrow I will do everything to further improve my rating

Which is why I said I hate to say it. If he had a problem prior to WP1 where his bike was choppered out, they will deliver to the end of the stage where it would record the time instead of the beginning where the bivouac is packed up and moving on. That is why I am wondering if anyone knows he made it in and just didn't clock time or if there is no trace other than the ASS time.

And Luis just passed WP6, so he's still on the move

edit: on the Andrew Scot matter, if they choppered him out, would it take that long and register his time at ASS? I would think it means withdrawal and no time

Actually following JW Offringa #178 , a regular guy who set himself the goal of doing Dakar 4 years ago.

He only started riding of road 5 years ago and could be your neighbour ;)

Rooting for him to finish every day, a serious challenge with his limited skills.

ANd Breauxman LIve- thanks man!

The Husqvarna team captain won his second special stage this year and regained his place among the pretenders for the title. Olivier Pain, new race leader, is gradually cementing his place in this category also. Nasser Al Attiyah won a special in which many of his rivals lost out: the hopes of a podium finish were shattered for Robby Gordon, Carlos Sainz and Lucio Alvarez…

If more proof was needed of Joan Barreda's competitiveness at the highest level, then he definitely gave a good example today. After a long day spoiled by a damaged wheel and a 44th place finish, the Catalan showed that he was ready to get stuck into a breath-taking climb back up the general standings. His status as an elite rider enabled him to begin in 24th position on the starting line in Nazca. He then went on to gobble up a special stage that was described as very tricky, overtaking 15 riders in the process, to pick up the best time for the third time in his career. His finishing time, 8'23” better than Olivier Pain, hauled him up to 4th place in the general standings, just behind his nearest pursuer, the other main player in the scenes played out between Nazca and Arequipa. The Yamaha rider, who is always riding with a thirst for a first special stage win on the Dakar, has been rewarded for his consistency.

Pain has harvested the fruit of his labours on the Yamaha YZF (on which Verhoeven and Casteu are also riding good races) and his consistency since the start in Lima. He now takes hold of the first place in the general standings, with a lead of 2'24'' over his team-mate David Casteu, who is riding a race in a similar vein. But what happened to Cyril Despres, the brief leader of the race? The four times winner opened the way throughout the day, choosing to ride in a restrained manner, at the cost of dropping back in the general standings. Though he moves down to 3rd position, 3 minutes behind Olivier Pain, he only has a lead of 2'29''over Barreda… who could be his main rival this year.

In the quad race, Marcos Patronelli won his third consecutive stage. He seems to have found a consistent rival in Sebastian Husseini, the only rider to be less than an hour behind him, 14'06” to be precise, after the first four stages.
Unintentional psychokinesis.
