On track at CP 1, but where are they heading, has Przgonski taken them all the long way round?

All taking that track, it must be the quickest route?

Go Sam

Hi, all!
Just stumbled by and think I'll watch little blue dots jump about for a bit.
GO SAM!

It's close, but with a minute interval between the top 3 ( they are the only ones in it if the bike and navigation hold up) starting tomorrow, he has the initiative

He started 2 minutes after Coma, caught him and Goncalves up and then looking at the PC times they rode together. He should be 2.10ish in front but will start in front tomorrow. Will be a chess game for the next few days if the bikes hold together.

Barreda took a short route to the Tarmac and went back that way, can't imagine it was a tactic

Tomorrow Sam should be 3rd - anything higher would be unbelievable, Wed is a stage win target and then the run in on thurs from the front, with Coma and Concalves catching him - Sam to win by a minute - well, that's the theory, in practice, 3 very tough days left

HRC are quiet, are they all sleeping in Japan?

FWIW, SS2 Results (bikes&quads) (and I have no clue what one has to do to get a 102hr penalty):
