So he averaged 72mph for 200km including a stop!? Not sure that should be humanly possible.

I believe that it would, yes, as it would if they had to split the cases to get at the transmission (even if that same motor were returned to the bike.
I believe one can notify the officials to break a seal to do certain maintenance, as some bikes just don't have the access to accomplish certain tasks with the engine in the frame. Now, it probably a whole 'nuther thing to split the cases, since many would essentially overhaul an engine given the chance. I'm sure an official would have to witness the seal cutting ceremony, and maybe even the work being completed. There is a chance one could get deep enough into the clutch cover to gain access to various shifter components. Hope it's not going to be a terminal issue for CdP.

Anyone got a clue why De Rooy's starting position is so far down for today?

Maybe he could just add a tooth to the front sprocket and then 4th would be OK!
Wouldn't take much for someone to pass him one, Moustache or not!

Aujourd'hui, ce n'etait pas une étape compliquée, il fallait juste suivre la piste et rouler à sa main. Sans hors-pistes, c'est toujours plus simple et j'ai pu attaquer. Avec Ruben, nous nous sommes arrêtés pour aider Cyril qui avait des soucis mécaniques, mais il nous a tout de suite dit de continuer. j'espère qu'on pourra réparer ce qui cloche ce soir au bivouac marathon. pour moi, sinon tout s'est bien passé, je suis de plus en plus à l'aise avec les instruments de navigation. Gagner la spéciale est super pour moi, mais je n'oublie pas que c'est mon premier Dakar et que je suis là pour apprendre. Mais en tout cas je prends beaucoup de plaisir, sur la moto comme au bivouac et je vais essayer de continuer comme ça...


Let me try without google:

Today, not a complicated stage. Just follow the track and twist the wrist. Without off piste, its simple and I could attack. With Ruben, we stopped to help Cyril who had a mechanical issue, but he told us to hurry up and gtfo. I hope that we can repair the damage tonight in the marathon biv. for me, everything went well, I am getting better with the navigation. winning the special is super for me, but I dont forget its my first DAkar, and I am here to learn. But in any case, I am having lots of fun, on the moto to the biv and I'm going to continue like that. (Will keep bringing it home)

So from your translation

a tout de suite dit de continuer = gtfo ?
I have to convince the woman that I am learning something here

Not stop for Cyril and yet sponsored by KTM = career suicide. A company pays north of a quarter of a million to get you in the KTM team , bike support and instruct to ride support and you neglect to do this. Not in your wildest dreams. He waved them through for sure. Not as a generous gesture i guess but because he probably knew he couldnt fix it without losing hours.

Just gotta love the Cyril hatred. Pushed to win he was not a gentlemen, Coma pushed to win , cheated and got caught, yet you hear far less of that.

Anyone knows what changes / upgrades the Yamaha team did on their YZs? These are the MX versions right, so no battery, just a kick start. Fitting the bigger tank and cusomising the suspension is not what I am interested in. I am just asking because to me these is a very reasonable choice of turning a very good bike into a Rally beast .
thanks.
