Race theory - top 5 starters finish together tomorrow - Sam then has 3.58 on Speedy and 3.17 on Coma.

Last day, top 5 starters finish together, speedy takes 3 mins off Sam and Coma 2 - Sam finishes 58 sec in front of Speedy and 1.17 in front of Coma - or thereabouts.

Well, so much for the theory, now let's see what the next 2 days actually brings

The stress is too much!

Best option, Helder finishes with them also, wins the stage and leads off on the final leg

Half-hour 'til kickoff.
Let's see how it plays today.
GO SAM!

Apart from the things you don't talk about, the worst case will be to win the stage but not take the 2 & 3 mins of Coma and Speedy - but in these dunes that would be a low % chance

Had to think about that for a minute but, yes, starting in front with no "cushion" would make it tough.

I'm guessing that CP1 is either at the crossing under E15 or at the westernmost point of the track.

Edit: It was the crossing.
Helder, Sam, PAU, Coma, Speedy & Kuba

It's looking good Sam has caught them all at PC 1 - bloody unbelievable

Helder is closing and looks like he could take the stage win - the perfect storm ?

Sam will consolidate now and just ride at the front with them, he doesn't need to take it on, but they do.

If Helder can take the stage and lead off tomorrow that's better for Sam as he will be able to chase Helder to keep his time advantage.

We know he can do it, as we always have

Some sort of recording glitch, I think. His tracker is 10mi or so west and moving.

Edit: Well, it was moving - last updated over 10min ago.

?? CP2 on the track leg where it parallels E15 ??
Probably about time for refueling but I don't see anything that looks like vehicles there.
