Well that river was not 3m deep as reported by Nasser, and he was not stuck on a rock in the middle of the river, he was stuck on a rock somewhere else! Lucky for him that part of the stage was cancelled.

I think it might have just been a faulty GPS or something like that rather than a navigational error. They would have checked his trace on the iritrack before the provisional results anyway.

These 3 elements are indissociable during the length of the race....
Are considered as part of the frame:... The frame and the engine cases,
It clarifies the question, I guess

I must say the last two days have been eventful and Im delighted with the results and the way the ASO have handled things so far.

Well I dont know about you lot but a rest day is certainly in order for me!

Have y'all gone back to sleep now that the ES1 coverage is finished? =)

We've still got the France coverage from the bivouac coming up. =)

Caught up..

With such flood ASO did good to neutralize those who were affected, bikes excluded, good on them.

Re CD's engine, by the book, it is illegal, but it is in the Dakar spirit and good for the race to let such a great rider stay in the game for the final week, again I find ASO right.

All in all Monday we resume a race with the top 15 riders within 1 hour from each other, when was the last time we saw that?

Keep the *gates coming, a great race is ahead of us...

Would write more but on phone atm...

"A terribly difficult day. Well, difficult, it's rather that we made a mistake. I was thinking that I had to stay focused and, right on cue, I made a mistake. I don't understand, everything seemed fine. Chaleco went into a valley a bit too early. He came back just in front of me. We were doing well. And then, I don't know. We should have turned a bit more to the right but it was difficult with the rain. That's the way it is. I was the big loser. Of course, I knew it wasn't all wrapped up yet; but there will be further surprises during the second week. The aim is not to get hurt and to make it to Santiago. But there's still much to go..."


Cyril

At any rate, I've put my bad day behind me! It was yesterday, when my fifth gear broke down in what was a fast special. I lost time, but I was nevertheless lucky because my friend Marek Dabrowski gave me his engine and took mine yesterday evening at the marathon bivouac... So today I was able to ride normally, and I could have pulled off a big coup today, because I almost took the right trail at the entrance of the río, but all the tracks went left, so in the end I followed them and came upon everyone riding around at sixes and sevens and looking at each other. When this happens, I only look at my road book and the landscape... I didn't see some riders break away and I had to make a U-turn 500 m from the right trail, but that's the way it is... There are good days, less good days and great days, and I'm waiting for a great day!


Casteau

A huge navigational success! I'm over the moon because it's difficult to ride at the front while attacking and keeping your bearings, navigating... I was able to keep my cool while everyone else was spinning around, but I stayed focused and was the first across the line... And leading the Dakar during the rest day, that's terrific!


Barreda

It was a good day, because after all the problems over the last few days, my hand feels better and better and I'm starting to ride at ease. I quickly caught up with the leaders, who were backtracking after a navigational mistake, and went flat out from then on, but in the last kilometres it was my turn to make a navigational mistake and David Casteu overtook me. Anyway, I'm happy nevertheless because I navigated quite well and I'm happy to add another stage win to my tally.

Monsieur Dakar

My first big mistake since the start of the rally, I insisted on following the motorcycle tracks but it was the wrong direction. Jean-Paul pressured me to look for a way out of the riverbed, but I continued for 2.5 km before retracing my steps, which means I'd gone 5 km too far and lost almost 9 minutes, as Terranova was going by when I came out... Well, that's the way it is... Nasser will probably take advantage of this, but that's racing... Having said that, one of the riverbeds was quite full when we went by and apparently they wanted to neutralise the stage at CP2. This wouldn't be bad news for me, as it would neutralise our navigational mistake and we'd only concede the time lost head-to-head on the course... We'll see...

Did you ever trust him? he is the most untrusted person in the dakar, no moral what so ever.
