Laia not showing up in live timing may or may not reflect reality. In years past a rider will not show up in 'live timing' and not show up and not show up, then mysteriously appear in the 'live timing' about where I thought he/she would have been if everything es ok... Hoping this time for Laia to appear there later. As if in a dream....

True for wp but the CP's are manually entered and are "rarely" wrong

No CP2, we'll only see them at the finish.

I believe Stephan Peterhansle was infamous for doing this when he rode bikes.

and i'm sure Coma / Despres know much more about such tactics (used by others as well as counter-tactics to address them) than us keyboard racers !!

doyle doing the Brodomath:

‏@RallyRaidReview 20s
CP1 is just about exactly the half way point of SS2. Barreda took 1h33' to clear it. It's been that long since. Expect finishers soon.

In the just for fun rallies we run out here you can do a version of this when everyone gets confused at a turn. Just roll back slowly and ride away tentatively like you're looking for the correct way. Some may follow, but most, once they've put their feet on the ground trying to suss out the RB, won't.
