The doctors strapped my shoulder so I could start the second special, but my motorcycle stopped 30 km from the finish. I think it was a sign: I had to stop. It wasn't worth it. I wanted to fight at the front. I already had my fair share of bad luck in 2011 and 2012. I'm going back home tomorrow. It's a hard blow. One day you're crying of joy and the next you're crying of pain and sadness.
I can't think of anyone I have wanted to see providence smile upon more than Casteu these past few years in the Dakar. I hope it goes good for him at least more so than living in the South of France. Bonne Chance David

What a tough break for Casteau. I've enjoyed following him.

Dakar 2013, 9th Stage, San Miguel de Tucuman – Cordoba
853 km stage (533 miles) including 593 km special test.

Joan Barreda second and Alessandro Botturi third in Dakar ninth stage.

"Bang Bang" Barreda picked up a precious second place in today’s ninth stage, the longest in the Dakar ’13 covering some 853 km (533 miles) from San Miguel de Tucuman to Cordoba. Barreda set off first this morning and opened the path for the other riders dominating throughout a special test divided into two parts. Despres, starting from further back, was the only competitor to outrun the Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain rider, winning the special 4’03” ahead of Joan.



Alessandro Botturi too, ran a spectacular race on his TE449RR by Speebrain coming in third right behind team-mate Joan. In doing so Alessandro managed to close the gap, moving up to fifth overall place on the leader-board.

A great day in the office for the Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain was rounded off with a seventh place for Paulo Goncalves, who also did a fine job in pulling back positions.

Joan Barreda: ”A really tough and dangerous stage. The ground was so slippery that it would have been really easy to fall. I open up the road coming across every type of animal imaginable; cows, horse, birds, and every time I had to slow down to avoid hitting anything. I’m pleased with the second place. With my hand the way it is I couldn’t do any more.”

Alessandro Botturi: "Starting from that far back I was confronted with an incredible amount of dust. I pushed hard from the start and I’m happy with the way that it went. This was my stage. If I had started amongst the leaders, I’d have won the race."

Paulo Goncalves: ”I rode well in the first part and I was, in fact, in fifth place at the end of the first leg. Then it was simply too dangerous to push hard, so I sat back and tried not to make any mistakes.”

Wolfgang Fischer: “Congratulations to our riders for a job well done in this, the longest stage of the rally. We’re really pleased that Alessandro is making ground on the leaders in the overall standings.”


Result Stage 9:
1. Despres (FRA, KTM) 5h41m36s
2. Joan Barreda (ESP, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:04:03
3. Alessandro Botturi (ITA, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:05:14
4. Faria (PRT, KTM) +00:07:47
5. Rodrigues (PRT, Honda) + 00:08:47
7. Paulo Goncalves (PRT, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:11:14
85. Matt Fish (AUS, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +01:27:06

Overall Standings after nine stages:
1. Faria (PRT, KTM) 25h57m12s
2. Despres (FRA, KTM) +00:05:23
3. Lopez (CHL, KTM) +00:09:03
4. Jakes (SVK, KTM) +00:16:56
5. Alessandro Botturi (ITA, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +00:22:58
19. Paulo Goncalves (PRT, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +01:33:51
35. Joan Barreda (ESP, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +03:11:40
96+. Matt Fish (AUS, Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain) +24:02:25

To much over-revving and the waterpump belt fell off!

I really have no idea, but that would be poetic.

Stage 9
Longest day of Rally over 850Km (592km special in two parts)
Early wake up call at 330am first bike on the road at 450am.
The track was all hard pack, fast and twisty. Like Baja. I felt great starting 2nd off. Had no dust the whole first stage, finished 3rd Overall.
Second part of special started well but came into a corner to hot and had to low side the bike to slow down.
The rear tire was bald from the first stage so rear brakes would just skid. I broke the front brake lever and had to replace it. Pushed hard after down time, finished 10th for the stage.
Another long day tomorrow. Over 300km special and over 300km liaison.
Body is bruised from crash, going to be stiff tomorrow.
Hoping to keep it up right. Only 4000km and 5 stages left to go. Believe me I am counting down. I love riding dirt bikes but Dakar pushes it a bit to far! Haha!
Adios til tomorrow.

I agree totally - KTM have a potentially huge income stream in Asia with the 200 Duke. New KTM dealerships all over Indonesia in the last 6 months. Might buy myself a few more shares.....
