This was my 1st day on the new bike. I did not know it too well so I took it slow and easy in the first kilometers of the stage.

He is also in the bivvy.

Man, I love how Fox Sports is using the old (Africa-)Dakar soundtracks to add them to the live coverage.

Does anyone have links to the old songs?

No, we don't, you seem to know more than me so maybe I missed something. Hope he is okay.

From David's Reeve's team (thanks Steve ):
"Well it looks as if David has made it up to where he left off last year. After Day 1 in 2013 he was 172nd and it took a lot of hard work to make his way through to the low 30's.
He has now got up to where he belongs and we should expect to see him run between 35 and 25 for at least the first week.
He was strong last year and relative to the others around him and was getting them for endurance. He is stronger this year, so his run into the teens should start around Day 10.
It's far too early to really make any serious predictions, but Day1 went according to plan or even a bit better. There are riders like Pal Anders and Laia Sainz behind David and no muppets ahead of him, so he just needs to hold position now. No more heroics needed right now."

and

"Cool bananas. The RV is about 20min away from the bivvy at the moment and DGR should be in about an hour later. He should have a sub 40 place start tomorrow, so if all goes well he should be getting in earlier than he did last year, combined with the comfort of the RV, our man should be in good shape"

4:18 pm local time and there are still 6 bikes out in the special.

Go Frederic!!!!

178 - LIBRALESSO PAOLO (ITA) WRF450 FPR
081 - BELTRAMI FRANCESCO (ITA)
137 - PERALTA CRISTIAN (CHL)
188 - MILLET FREDERIC (FRA)
096 - ESCALE ORIOL (ESP)
097 - ESCALE GILBERT (ESP)


Think about it, these guys started at 4h30 am and they still have 200km to ride to get to bivouac from the finish. No doubt these guys will be back after dark and miss the briefing. And it's only the first day!! Poor Frederic has to still do his road book and maintain his bike, when he is not eating and resting. Tomorrow is another 304km Initial liaison (so about 3.5-4 hours) before a tougher 359km special with thick sand and a warm down of 63km, a total of 725km. Its not going to be getting any easier.

The snowball commences early this year.

Time to start a slow clap already?

Quotes

Cyril Depres-

"I got a bit emotional..."

"A winding special with lots of breaking and accelerating. 180 km of this was a great way to get the ball rolling! I took some time to find my bearings and ease into my pace. The first special is always tough when you come from cold Europe and you get thrown into the thick of things, so I'm happy to get good feelings. I got a bit emotional at the start, what with starting a new adventure... It was a difficult year, with the decision to move to Yamaha, and then having to prepare the motorcycle, working with the entire team... So when D-Day comes, it feels good to be racing again."

Duclos-

Important to hitch myself to the right wagon..."

"I'm over the moon because I had lots of fun, my Sherco didn't miss a beat and it was a real pleasure to ride on this type of course, where it almost rides itself. In short: fun, speed and a nice bonus at the finish with this result! It was important for me to do well from the beginning in order to hitch myself to the right wagon for upcoming stages.

Barreda-

"I'll try to keep it up"

"I'm really happy with the first stage. At the beginning I had some trouble easing into the race due to a slight problem with the suspension, but afterwards everything went smoothly. We'll work on it to ride even faster tomorrow. I'll try to keep up this pace in the next few stages."



Coma-

"I took things easy"

"First days at the Dakar are never easy. It's difficult to find and maintain your pace straight away. So I took things fairly easy and, as the day wore on, I got the right feelings and found the right pace. All things considered, I'm happy because it's important to clear the first stage without running into trouble, and that's just what I did."


Goncalves-

"Everything's going to plan for me and Honda"

"It was quite difficult for a first special, with a very slippery and tricky 180 km course, especially on the mountain sides: if you fall there, you're going all the way down! So I decided to take it easy at the beginning, but little by little I eased into the pace and gained some confidence. At the end I accelerated and posted the fifth best time on the finish line. I'm happy because my teammate Joan Barreda won the stage, which means I'll start just behind him tomorrow and we'll be able to work as a team. So everything's going to plan for me and Honda."
