Ned has lodged a[nother] protest this morning to find out how this anomaly occurred, as it is clear from his stage timing that someone (either at the CP or the post race data input) has made a mistake - the obvious suggestion is that since Ned was right up the front and very early the CP2 and instead of them writing let's say 11.30 for example, the time may have been written down as 1.30 by mistake... or that post race, the data inputter either misread the time sheet, or was simply used to typing results closer to 1pm when the majority of riders came through...
Fingers crossed it is sorted soon - although it is unlikely to be confirmed before the start of SS6 this morning (in about one hour from now), so Ned is going to try and get reseeded with a smile at the start, as currently he will be starting 47th, with a lot of bikes between him and the fast guys...
Although he has a margin of 6 minutes over the race leader (if his time is restored), there is all to play for in this penultimate day in the dunes...
I will keep on top of it for you!
