So tomorrow is the marathon day...wheres the dude with the tattered rule books...did they change the rules this year to not allow assistance staff from providing "care packages" and bike support in the liaison ? I hope so or, like last year, the marathon becomes more of a who interrupted the rules better and took advantage of said rules

When he finally got loose and the bike came over the mountain, he went later to the ground after hitting a sandbank slightly awry. A bike that came behind him at full speed (a Honda is all I know) just managed to slam his rear wheel into the "tower" (the knob navigansjonsinstrumenter etc) the bike Pål Anders, so that all the instruments were smashed. Not only did these episodes time, the cost of effort and not least major damage to the bike.

Hopefully the team over there fixed the bike tonight and Pål Anders get some rest. In the morning, the running back at the 04 o'clock local time and then the participants will undergo a two-day marathon stage where you can not make use of the assistance from team cars. This means that if something goes wrong with the bike or equipment, one is out of this year's Dakar. Pål Anders seems, however, to this marathon leg as his opportunity to get back in top form. His experience and perseverance gives him probably also due to this. Remember it is "only" 36 minutes up to the set and a lot can happen in the next two days.

On behalf of Pål Anders

Update from PAU, who haven't had a real good day (not even anyone to "lay down")

This comes from his FB, and are from the team manager, Rune Bjerke,

"Just spoke to Pål Anders, who have had a really bad day.

First, he got the bike stuck in some large rocks going up a mountainside, and getting it loose at 2000 meters alt have taken a lot of energy. When he eventually got the bike out of there and got over the mountain he had an off after hitting a small dune in a bad way. A bike behind him coming at full speed (a Honda is all I know) managed to hit the nav-tower on Påls bike with his rear wheel, smashing all the instruments. Not only did these episodes take time, they also took a lot of energy not to mention quite a lot of damage to the bike.

Hopefully the team will manage to fix the bike tonight, and Pål Anders get some rest. Tomorrow it's off again at 0400AM, going into a two day marathon with no assistance from the team. That means if anything goes wrong with bike or equipment, you're out of this years Dakar. Pål Anders hovewer looks at the marathon as his best hope to regain the lost time to the top. Hi have a lot of experience and stamina, that he hope to use to his advantage. Remember its only 36 minutes to the leader and a lot can still happen."

I know CDP says he not pushing 100% right now and I think that's a good thing to try and pace yourself in this long of a race, But have we heard much from the other camps on how hard there riders really are pushing? CDP obviously thinks they are flying, Could be his older age than the youngsters just makes him think they are running hard?? Don't know for sure...Just my ramblings from the sidelines

b) On the route of a Road Section
By the Driver of a car, a bike or a truck officially entered in and still in the race. By vehicles in the assistance category, when the assistance vehicles have the same itinerary to that of the race. Refuelling with petrol or diesel out of an assistance vehicle is prohibited.

The way I'm reading it, If they are following the same road book, they can service

Helder facebook:

I'm pleased. I managed to recover a few more good positions and was one of the first to reach the end of the special. This was a stage that the scenario changed radically. It was a relatively short selective sector, but with some parts very complicated. I came a long time following Farres and only at the end I managed to pass him and stay free of the dust that his bike lifted.

Cyril "The only problems I’ve been having out on the stage are the other bikes riding so close to me. The desert is huge but the others like to stay very close to me."

Pau - A bike behind him coming at full speed (a Honda is all I know) managed to hit the nav-tower on Påls bike with his rear wheel, smashing all the instruments.

you can see where Cyril is comming from here.

I thought the marathon was Fri-Sat, followed by the rest day but now I'm not sure why I thought that.
