They cleared WP8 12 seconds from each other on track, so it seems like they are helping out each other again.
Hope it's not too much of trouble so they can arrive and continue tomorrow

edit: Miguel just showed up on the tracker @ WP9

Lyndon 45; JC 52 - he will be pleased with that if it stays like it
once he settled his position in the mid 40's during the stages, he won't have trouble with slower riders and maybe climb up a little more ... but he shouldn't race, he should aim for the finish ( and I'm sure he does)

Rider quotes on dakar.com



JOAN BARREDA
Consistency is the key


The day started with Cyril (Despres) opening the road. I thought I could catch him easily but he was quick. In the end, I caught up with him and we finished together. It was a lively stage and even fun before the refuelling point; it was a rocky, narrow track, like in endurance racing and very varied in the end. We enjoyed ourselves. I'm showing that I'm there every day and it's always good for experience. It's a shame I had problems with the bike at the start of the rally, otherwise I would have been at the front. Most importantly, I've never made any navigation mistakes. I've always been out in front at a good pace. I've been doing well on several stages, so I'll have to carry on like that. I believe that Marc (Coma), Cyril and myself are really quick riders. Of course there are other riders who are in with a shout, but they are often ahead due to racing circumstances: when there's a breakdown or a mistake. However, when you have to go flat out, you can see the difference. All in all, on this rally consistency is the key. I had a problem one day and that was it for me; but since then, everything is fine.


CYRIL DESPRES
Gaining in confidence and letting the racing do the talking


It's a fairly quick for a cruising pace, more like a speed boat. With a motivated Joan Barreda on my tail, you can't slow down. I managed to keep the pace. The bike again worked well and suffered less than yesterday. It's always nice to speed along over 360 kilometres without scaring myself. I'm in good form. The selective side is what makes the Dakar different and stand out in comparison to all the other rallies. There are physically tough special stages and a type of natural selection in relation to the level to which the machines and riders are prepared. Picking up seconds in the general standings is not the most important thing. What matters is making statements, making a difference, gaining in confidence and letting the racing do the talking. As a result, the general standings reflect that on paper in the evening.


PAULO GONCALVES
I'm going to try to win a stage


After the first week when I had mechanical problems and lost time on navigation, I set off in a good position today. Starting in the first ten, there is a lot less dust and it's more comfortable. I rode very fast and soon caught up with Ruben. It wasn't easy to overtake him because there was still a lot of dust. But I finished the day on the podium for the stage, so it's a very good day, all the more so since Joan won the stage, meaning there are two Husqvarna riders in the top three – it's very good. My personal objective was to finish on the podium, but with the electrical problems that I had, it won't be possible anymore. So, I'm going to try to win a stage. It won't be easy, but I'm going to try.

Sweet! Snooker Master match just started on Eurosport 1. This game should be over in a quick 6 hours...provided the lap-top does not need a re-boot.

That "livin-on-the-edge" car is a Latvian OSCar 03. Pretty tough car, capable of solid result.
Last year this manufacturer finished Dakar with full electro-powered OSCar eO and this year they achieved the same on Africa Eco Race.
And they also built two of these FJ Cruisers for Saudis.

Thinking of tomorrows stage already.. I want a good ride fron Jakes as i think he is in the right spot for it and have a podium infront of him.. How sould the starting order for tomorrow be?

Chaleco is gonna eat alot of dust for tomorrows stage

Jakes gonna have it easier to keep a steady fast pace when Chaleco is not.

I thinik of the starting order af todays stage ranking or is it the overall standings that make the starting order or is Chaleco re-seedeble?

May i got things wrong but just wonder..

So... what are the odds that Despres doesn't relinquish the lead?

Ok actuaries... do the numbers.

I would think the smart money is on the "alien" who has been sitting back biding his time... until he found out the game plan was not for everyone to switch engines. Then he went into the next gear... with I believe at least one more gear remaining.

Sorry to those who were vying to unseat the king. They thought they had a chance to take the crown since there was only one, which they did. They still do but they may need a Cheshire Cow or Llama to help, like the one that Casteau encountered.

Hope the heart of Dakar are able to keep they babies purring to make it through the last few days. So close... yet so far.

Damn! You have to love this!
