Lyndon calls in after the first of two marathon stages (bikes spend the night in their own bivouac, no assistance crews for the duration of two consecutive days). It was a rough day for him, both physically/health, and mechanically on the bike, which luckily can be considered his first setbacks of the rally. It was also an emotional day, as a moto competitor was killed on the liaison to the start of the special. Godspeed, Thomas Bourgin.

Snowing tonight
Via FB
Jordi Viladoms


¡Jordi Viladoms llega al vivac!

Han pasado más de seis horas desde que el piloto conseguía poner de nuevo en marcha la moto. Se le ha hecho de noche y ha empezado a llover, y a esa altitud a nevar, por precaución y primando la integridad del piloto la organización le ha permitido llegar al vivac de coches y camiones y su moto será custodiada hasta mañana, ya que los demás pilotos de motos se encuentran en el vivac de la etapa maratón sin asistencia.

Jordi explica que "estoy bien, con fuerzas aún para mañana, ahora toca ducha, comer algo y dormir, ha sido un día muy duro pero teníamos que llegar, he ido poco a poco porque se ha hecho de noche y ha empezado a llover, pero la moto ha respondido bien después de solucionar los problemas mecánicos".

Jordi tras reparar su moto ha sido capaz de llegar al vivac pilotando en condiciones extremas, pero ahí está y mañana saldrá a disputar la siguiente etapa.
¡¡¡¡¡¡VAMOS JORDI!!!!! SOM-HI JORDI !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jordi Viladoms comes to the bivouac!

More than six hours have passed since the pilot managed to again start the bike. It has been done at night and it has started to rain, and at that altitude to snow, for caution and giving priority to the integrity of the pilot organization has allowed him to arrive at the bivouac of cars and trucks and your bike will be guarded until tomorrow, the other riders of motorcycles can be found in the bivouac of the stage Marathon without assistance.

Jordi explains that "I'm fine, with forces even for tomorrow, now it time to shower, eat and sleep, has been a very hard day but we had to reach, I have gone slowly because it has been done at night and it has started to rain, but the bike responded well after mechanical Troubleshooting".

Jordi after repairing his bike has been able to arrive at the bivouac riding in extreme conditions, but there it is and tomorrow will compete in the next stage.
VAMOS JORDI! SOM-HI JORDI!

For interest, you might like to read this sometime:

A cousin of mine took on Mickey D's here in Australia and won. There's a clear demonstration of how this works - big money does what big money wants until someone with the nous decides to "ask is it just?".

Hey... I had an idea. We need a McD's ASO certified, genuine collector edition McMoustache Burger with spicy sauce. Bugger that the trademark office is closed on weekends.

He still takes the time to give all of us a call. He needs a good night sleep. He also needs a good day tomorrow. He did not sound disappointed at all the first special was cancelled
He said it was pissing down. Had been for while. Hope those boys got them bikes back together and running without drowning out.

Their policies have always been a little short sighted.

67hrs at work this week, and who knows how many hours here.

I'm headed for the bivouac, and will relish the late start tomorrow (er, they did push the start time back with the abbreviated stage, yeah?).

Great call by Lyndon.

Altitude really took it out of the boys today.

I spoke to Brett Cummings & Darryl Curtis today. They were also both tired, Brett on an equivalent with Lyndon, Darryl a little less so. Both had headaches as well, and both battled with the altitude today and the dust.

Darryl first talked about how well his teammate Riaan van Niekerk did, and talked about his own performance with a little bit of disappointment I think. I encouraged him because he is still doing very very well, and he said he had a trouble free day but he did not want to take any chances, because there is still a very long way to go. He was really looking forward to the rest day. Darryl thanks all his supporters and apologised for not working harder to communicate with us.

Brett wanted me to thank you all for your support both here at F5irehose and the wilddog forum.za, he sounded quite surprised and encouraged that so many people were following his progress, and that he was greatly admired for towing Matt Fish so far the other day. He also had a trouble free day apart from a really tough liaison with the altitude. He said it was very fast and dusty, and the Hondas are not as fast as the KTM's. He said he could go not more than 139km/hr while the KTMs were doing about 145-15He was frustrated by that a bit today I think. Brett plans to take tomorrow easy and get to the rest day. There is a lot of focus on that rest day b all the riders, he said, and that he was really looking forward to it.



I think that snowball has begun to catch everyone, so its just as well the stage was shortened. In the desertt heavy rains would change the conditions too much and create new gulleys and hazards that would not be in the road book, so I think the organisers decision in this respect is a prudent one.

The stage and liaison is now shorter, so I think they may actually start only an hour later or so....

These guys are incredible. The times of even the guys farther back in the pack are blowing me away. To think of how fast the guys in front are going is hard for me to imagine carrying for a hundred miles. What the stages seem to lacking in overall mileage they seem to be making up for in difficulty.
Jan looked whooped. I've felt like he looked. Sometimes that bike just feels Really Big and Heavy. Snowballed. Still, missing the fuel dump is a hell of a way to dnf.

I'm looking strong for a good ride tomorrow. Have to work, but its a recording babysit gig, and Les Troyens is a five hour opera, so I should have no trouble (knock wood) keeping up, I hope.

Going to be a very interesting day. Looking forward to Cyril get mad

I think you may have your wires crossed - he towed Todd Smith, his team mate.
