My experience is that rally bikes eat the first bump really well, the second ok, and after that all bets are off. Rally bikes suck in the whoops!

I believe so Ned. Tomorrow's route looks very similar although ASO said something about more km's in the grey dunes near the end of the stage.

Hmm, only 172 riders shown in the Posis, out of 174. Does this mean our last two guys were disqualified? I think not. Here is why:

Firstly, ASO have not yet published any withdrawals list. No great comfort as this is normally published a day or sometimes even two days in arrears.

However they have published PDF results up in the french section, and these are the results which will go on the notice board in the bivouac.

Here you go:

Stage results with penalties
http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2014/docs...nts/CEM_01.pdf

Overall results with penalties
http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2014/docs...nts/CGM_01.pdf


And our boys Gilbert and Frederic are marked as in albeit with late penalties



The shocker of the results is that Michael Metge got slammed with a 41 minute penalty. This would almost certainly have been for speeding somewhere in the liaison or special in a speed-controlled zone. These are clearly marked in the road book.

So he has been knocked all the way down to 114th!!!

Horrific for him no doubt, but it shows us that the field is actually rather fast. I have not checked if he will be reseeded for "safety reasons" but he can certainly ask, and he can also pay a big cash deposit and lodge a protest with the organisation.

So... what it means is that the overall results now look like this:


Well done Grabbo in at 10th, you aussie bastard!!!

Now I need some clever guys to answer this question: What are the classes in the columns 3-8?

Group is yellow (1 for professional) or white (2 for amateur), the classes are numbered and then split out in the subsequent columns.

Stand to correction here but I think "M" is for Malle Moto, "F" is for Female rider, and "1" is for production class?

What are the other class numbers?

Now what really excites me is that Brett Cummings came 64th but was SECOND in the Malle moto class!!! Absolutely fantastic!!


Below are the results other riders I have been following :

Pos. No Group Class Name.............................................. ..............Time.............Time Behind leader

Quinn Cody, BJ's navigator says yes, it's the same place. And he's looking forward to it, "just need the F?#*!#$ to put enough fuel in the car".

The hop before the pirouette. Probably right when Barreda was saying "mierda!..."

Ned can you remember how many KM you did in these dunes? It had to be about 30km if I recall?

This time it looks like they'll loop north similar to what you guys did and then back south before some dirt tracks to the east take them to the ASS.

Yeah, the sphincter pressure at that point must have been enough to make a diamond out of a piece of coal...
