I don't know anything about the guy really other than it is his first Dakar. I think it is wisdom that he break in slow make sure he's on and then come on strong through the day and not get caught up in a organ measuring contest with the very experienced early on.

Cyril's on fire!


dakar.com


  • 12:59 Bikes: CP1: Despres seizes the lead

    Cyril Despres has posted a best time of 34'44' in the motorcycle category,, with Hélder Rodrigues' Honda a mere 27' back. Perhaps he's decided to step it up a notch in today's special following his careful start to the rally, but what's for sure is that the Frenchman has clawed back 1'13' from fellow countryman and overall leader David Casteu.

There was a glitch again. Normally when they start a special, the starting times are published on the checkpoint pages too. This time they weren't, so the start times of the connection were still shown what caused weird starting positions. I think I fixed that (for today).

Barreda 50 seconds slower than Cyril into WP2

But Casteu losing even more time to Cyril, at 2 minutes plus change behind

Since we are in a funny mood: caption this photo of KTM mechanics yesterday working on Cyril Despres' engine. Yes, the engine he swapped with Marek Dabrowski!

So if I'm thinking right this am CD has passed 5 riders physically by WP2. Thats really good but somehow I thought it would be more.

Anyway it looks like he is going for the demoralizing factor today - or is he hoping someone will push too hard on an ailing engine and get it to bonk?
