Sabine Moreau, a Belgian woman, 67, had to drive 150 miles just to get from her home in the town of Hainault Erquelinnes, to North Station in Brussels, where she reached a friend who had to collect. However, a failure in the GPS and the surprising lack of attention of the driver ended up making the trp on a trip through continental Europe ended in Zagreb (Croatia) nearly two days and 1,450 miles later.

"I was distracted, so I kept pressing the accelerator," she said after Moreau, who only realized she was going in the wrong direction when she arrived in the Croatian capital. "I've seen all kinds of signals, first in French, then in German and finally in Croatian, but I continued driving because I was distracted," she said.

During this unusual journey the woman stopped to refuel twice on the road and even suffered a minor accident and stopped for a few hours to sleep in the car. However, in the story told to the police, who had begun his search following a complaint from his son's disappearance, says she never became aware that she was on the wrong track. "Until suddenly appeared in Zagreb and then I fell into it and was not in Belgium," she said. "I admit it's a little weird, but I was distracted," she added.
Mme Moreau's twin sons, Kurt and Joan, couldn't help her as they are currently taking part in a motorcycle race in South America, the police stated.

Gaps pretty consistent at WP6, Cyril's in now.

Nah, you've got better things to do with your time. Besides, any questions can get answered here quickly enough.

Hmm, maybe put a firehose link on the page?

If I could ask for something, it's a design that makes it more obvious if I'm looking at stage, stage hours or overall times. Sometimes I click on overall, forget about it and then I'm confused out of my mind when I look again.

Maybe a headline saying "overall" right above the rider list would be enough.

I ducked out on Saturday, because I went for a ride.

That was acceptable.

Contract BS?

I don't think so, Tim.

It looks like the clerc that dropped the penalty sheet behind the water cooler has found it and entered it into the system.

the french stopped ...

casteau without fuel ? he stopped 16km from refuel


Quote:
Olivier Pain est également arrêté, mais au Km 182, pour une raison inconnue. Le Français ancien leader du général est dans une zone boisée où le parcours de la spéciale suit un chemin forestier.


Le leader du général David Casteu est arrêté au Km 210 de la spéciale. Le niçois avait déjà observé un arrêt pour une vérification sur sa monture. A priori, un ennui d'alimentation en carburant (fuite ?). Le pilote Yamaha étant arrêté à 16 Kms du refueling, on peu penser qu'il est à sec d'essence ?

mornin' guys (and gals).

there is no way I can keep up, so seems like Manuel is running good - did he fix the engine or did "turning the carb" around solve his troubles?

Olivier Pain has also stopped, 182 km into the special, for some as yet unknown reason. The Frenchman and former overall leader has come to a halt in a forested area where the course of today's special follows a forest road.


Overall leader David Casteu has come to a standstill 210 km into today's special. The rider from Nice had already stopped before to check something on his motorcycle. It looks like he's got a fuel supply problem (a leak, maybe?). But the Yamaha rider stopped 16 km from the refuelling point, could it be that he's run out of petrol?
