Fuel smell may just be high elevation/ no spark.

But we're on pretty thin ice here, diagnosing from that tiny amount of info. Does Chavo have a stator with him?
Thank you. I just sent him all that information. Appreciated!

15P3 RECLASSIFICATION
For safety reasons, at the end of each Stage, the International Jury will automatically reposition for the starting order of the next day’s Stage, the A.S.O. Elite Drivers and/or the first 15 overall; if these Drivers happened to be badly classified due to mechanical problems. In no case can such a repositioned bike start in front of a bike appearing among the first 15 cars in the start list of the Stage.


edit; the list of elites is interesting..explains why some good riders don't get a free pass

One more thought before I get back to work.

For all our joking about stadium Dakar and favoritism and the rest, the star of the motorcycle show currently has greasy hands and is working on his own rig, putting a motor in to stay in the chase tomorrow.

It is impossible to imagine that in any other top-tier form of racing. Ryan Villipoto or James Stewart putting in a motor between motos? Yeah, right, it's hard to picture them turning a suspension clicker!

My belief, and my experience, is that the Dakar adventure, while torn around the edges, remains vibrant inside, for most people, most of the time. I dislike the short stages, I abhor the favoritism, I hate the constant pushing of the rules and flexibility toward teams with $$... but I still love the race and what it brings out in people. There AND here.

For those on the ground having problems with the altitude, you can buy Sorojchi pills in any farmacia. This stuff works, it's a mixture of aspirin, small amount of caffeine, and some other harmless ingredient I can't recall at the moment, and it's cheap. If you're feeling like shit this stuff will fix you up.

TV schedule for january 12 & 13

Scoured the schedules and this is what I've concluded (after having read through the schedules for all three french channels twice =):

12:th
@ 17:40 (UTC/GMT) - France 4 (Le Dakar)
@ 18:15 (UTC/GMT) - Eurosport 2 (Live - Interviews)
@ 22:00 (UTC/GMT) - Eurosport 1 (Highlights)

13:th
@ 01:05 (UTC/GMT) - France 2 (Bivouac)

Considering calling it a night (living in UTC+1)...

But it is possible for them to work on the bikes themselves and it is within regulations to switch engines between two of the team's competing bikes. Doringer said Despres, Kurt Caselli and Ruben Faria were working together to remove the engine while the other riders in the KTM factory teams were working on one of the support bikes in preparation for making the switch.
One thing I don't get is how can they have the tools, oil, etc to swap engines. The first post quoting Pal mentioned that would be impossible for them to swap engines, even if they wanted to.

Dakar 2013, 7th Stage – Calama -Salta
802 km stage (500 miles) including 218 km of special test
*
Botturi in tenth place after the first part of the marathon.

The 218 km first part of the Dakar 2013’s only marathon stage, won’t be remembered by the riders as a particularly special one. The stage presented no particular difficulties other than the dust and a navigation-heavy first part, and saw the riders approach the race with a calm and prudent attitude. The special test, at between 3000 and 3400 metres sea level, proved to be a test in itself. Alessandro Botturi was the best of the Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain riders, taking tenth place, which could prove crucial ahead of tomorrow’s second marathon leg.

Joan Barreda and Paulo Goncalves, who set off from behind had to put up with an enormous amount of dust throughout the day. Both chose not to take risks. Joan finished a dust-filled day with very little overtaking, in twenty-first place, and Paulo came in twenty-sixth. Jordi Viladoms had a bad day at the office, when during the transfer he stopped at the Lama pass border crossing some 4500 metres above sea level, where for reasons of fatigue was forced to seek aid from a medical car, and was given oxygen. Jordi managed to restart and compete in the special. Matt Fish got back to the bivouac this morning after working on his bike in the neutralization zone yesterday, and headed out on the second special in the dark. Matt didn’t throw in the towel as he realises how important it’s going to be for his team-mates to have his support over the next few days.

Tonight the riders will camp out in Cachi, without the mechanics, and will thus have to do any work on their TE449RRs by Speedbrain themselves. They set off again tomorrow at 05.50 for another long stage, which is expected to be a complicated one.

The seventh stage of the Dakar has been marred by the death of the young French rider, Thomas Bourgin, 25, involved in a fatal accident during the long transfer. The Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain sends condolences to the family.

The second leg of the marathon from Salta to San Miguel de Tucuman is predicted to be the toughest stage of the entire Dakar 2013. A total of 739km (461 miles) including 492 special test, which will take the form of two separate parts. After the special there will be a 228 km transfer to the camp where the riders have their rest day on the 13th January.

Alessandro Botturi: “It was a fairly calm stage, even if it was very long. I didn’t take any risks and didn’t push too much, as we were at such a high altitude and it wouldn’t have been right to overdo things. Starting out tenth suits me fine for tomorrow’s stage as it’s an important one and I want to attack.”

Paulo Goncalves: “I tried to get past the slower riders who started ahead of me but it was really tricky. It was just too dusty and dangerous. I managed to overtake three riders, but then I decided it was better not to take any chances, and so I sat in behind the group.“

Joan Barreda: “It was impossible to overtake today in the special, because there really was so much dust. I took it easy as my hand was causing me problems and I didn’t want to mess everything up before tomorrow’s special. This evening I will take something for the swelling, because I want to be in good shape for tomorrow’s important stage.”


Result Stage 7:
1. Caselli (USA, KTM) 1h51m31s
2. Lopez (CHL, KTM) +00:01:23
3. Pain (FRA, Yamaha) +00:01:23
4. Verhoeven (NLD, Yamaha) +00:01:30
5. Faria (PRT, KTM) +00:02:30
10. Alessandro Botturi (ITA, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:04:39
21. Joan Barreda (ESP, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:09:21
26. Paulo Goncalves (PRT, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:10:17
44. Matt Fish (AUS, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:21:11

Overall Standings after seven stages:
1. Pain (FRA, Yamaha) 17h28m17s
2. Lopez (CHL, KTM) +00:06:06
3. Casteu (FRA, Yamaha) +00:06:37

Changing engines in the dirt is one of those weird romantic fantasies i have. Its pretty amazing to do that and keep going.
