Looks like Chaleco was the one leading the way into CP one and then the top five promptly latched onto each other and rode together all the way to the finish and finished within seconds of each other. Yawn!

I certainly hope it's a bike problem rather than injury.
QC continues to move steadily to the finish but he is only moving about 25-50 mph. Will be interesting to hear the story.

So, with 12 mins separating the top 5 and 2 min starting intervals, its pretty much wide open - Coma starts tomorrow and will be caught, but I suspect that over the 4 days he will just about have his calculations right, but if he now wins the stage on day 3 also he will be leading out on the last day!

Sam managed it the other week - so the pressure is on him (sort of)

I never could tell who was opening trail. The lead group (Coma, PAU, Speedy, & Chaleco) trackers were usually in a clump with Kuba not far behind and he caught up near end of stage.

Just found this and although the times do not seem correct to me, for what it's worth:

Yep - turns into a training ride in the sand and ultimately down to a few seconds here and there much like the other week the key factor will be if the first off can acutally hold or even extend the lead

AHA! That's what I was looking for and never could find!

Edit: OK, got it - FINALLY! The big-ass chart was start times for the laiason to DSS. Tuning in 2 1/2 hrs after the actual start left me in the dust.

Quinn Cody
42 minutes ago via mobile
Survived day 1 here in Qatar, stage 1 was a long extremely rocky 405km special with lots of difficult navigation. My game plain for today was just to get comfortable on the new bike and work on my navigation, I told myself this morning that I would stick to my road book no matter how bad I wanted to follow..... The nav was supper hard with multiple tracks going everywhere, I got hopelessly lost a few times and rode around for what seamed like forever trying to find the right track but managed to hit all my waypoints. It feels good to be back on the bike and I'm beginning to feel at home on my Speedbrain 450, looking forward to another 400km special tomorrow.

Good on Quinn for riding his plan.
He was right with Coma @PC1 so the temptation to follow must have been great.

Way to go, but it's not going to win him any short term honours, but it will improve his navigation - maybe he should get some roadbooks off Hogwild and get some practice in at home - I would have thought it best not to practice in real events though.

I see that that start order was determined by the authorities - so if you were cynical then they have handed Coma the advantage

According to Chavo, it was a very difficult stage for navigation. He took a wrong turn 1km before the right spot in the roadbook as it seems like most did. He saw Quinn at first but figured he got lost because he never saw him again until the end.

He has my phone number, and he knows I have a catalog of training roadbooks. Same for Kurt Caselli. But my phone isn't ringing.
