I want to hear about the shortcut Tom took on 14 and 15. To shave 6 minutes off the competition. And how bout those mechanical fixes after day one?

Just look at his stage times compared to the rest of the field. Look at the results with stage scores page. It looks like, by my abacus, it doesn't matter, Tom would have won anyway. He might not have beaten every car but one though

Those times aren't corrected online yet. Those two stage times were obviously a clerical error for Tom (who nevertheless ran another great race, and nearly won).

However, he was bested by Devon (blueillusion10), a paramedic from Ontario here, who ripped through the stages on his new 530exc, and took the 1st overall by about a minute over Tom.

Major congrats to Devon - I think he is probably the first Canadian ever to win the overall at a Rallymoto!

I'm sure more details will come out shortly. We're all still trying to dry off from Saturday.

Yeah timing was buggered this event. I think they had a big shortage on volunteers and a lot of them were inexperienced. Either way, great racing, especially day 2. Day one was just a matter of survival. No crashes which was great. Some of your typical euro-bike mechanical failures so the field got a bit smaller unfortunately.

I have a feeling the DRZ might return next year with some better suspension and a little more sack.

If anyone finds any pics throw the links up here. I think they'll be limited due to the weather.

Nice showing Tom! First, Second... whatever... its all faster than me

Not a lot of post race chatter... I hope all ended well and everyone had a great time. I would have loved to have been there... next year

In the mean time, starting to plan out my sandblast 14 prep!

I'm waiting for some of the pictures to start coming out. I emailed this guy to see if he had more of the bikes. The weather was so crappy that I'm not surprised the media is at a minimum. I never even hooked up my go-pro because you wouldn't be able to see anything.

Awesome pic! Looking good country doc!!!

Great event! Saturday night was a mission to stay alive and still try and put down fast stage times. The battle with Tom all day sunday was so close, seconds apart after each stage. He is crazy fast on that 400! He would have had me for sure if we were both riding that bike. Day one Tom waited for me several times to help navigate the transits. Due to the monsoon conditions my road-book was a bit of a mess. Without even asking he waited to help me out, a true sportsman. Great to know people are there to help even if your seconds apart for 1st. Thanks Tom! Great to meet everyone, a great group of people to race with.

Cheers,

Devon

Yeah Devon that was a blast when it was a bit dryer. If I could have seen anything on the Saturday stages we might have finished a bit closer. Ditching the goggles was a good move. Great group of guys this weekend. I'm not too fussed about losing since I think I won the championship for Dakar Class and the overall title? I should get 31 points for BRS which puts me at 62 points total, and nobody in the top 5 overall other than Kevin ran BRS, and because of his DNF I'm pretty sure I got it? Dan should have second with 52 points I think.

Also keep in mind that RWV and BRS are "double points" so they are worth twice the points at Sandblast. Since the only other 2 finishers in Dakar class at BRS were me and John and neither of us ran any other races you certainly have the Dakar class championship, likely the overall as well.

Congrats! you rode the wheels off that DRZ.

Was good racing with all you guys. Felt good to get back into it even though I had some serious confidence issues after my crash last year.
