Spot on

Granted, but see Ned's recent post about the daily roadbook briefings. French version much more comprehensive.

WRT the DQ, thinking that they'd let a truck ride slide was a stretch I think. All sorts of rule-bending towing goes on, but only on the long European liaisons do I remember lift/trailer being allowed. Bummer.

They need the privateer motos, look at the entry numbers and that's pretty clear. Just as they're not going to drive the pro teams away, nor will they make it completely unattainable for the true privateers.

The front 5 riders are merging slowly, they are now 2,5 mins apart physically from the 1st to the 5th.

If Despres catches the front the provisional standings will look very very tight...

Whilst he was leading the stage, Portugal's Paulo Gonçalves ground to a halt after 333 km of the special stage. The reason is unknown, but the biker is in a very rocky zone so it could be due to a puncture

Puncture?? thought they all run mousse

For those interested in the trucks

Stacey
The Dutch driver's Iveco has apparently been badly damaged after an accident (the truck rolled over forwards) after 79 km. The crew are ok, but the truck has been unable to carry on
