France 4 in 20 or minutes...

Hey folks, don't forget to check out France 4 in 10 minutes or so for their one hour long Dakar program.

...and Well done Sam!
Your motorcycle must be restarted for these changes to take effect.

I meant to post this earlier in the interview with Chaleco saying he stopped for an electrical problem but sorted it out and had a smooth ride after that.

My suspicion is that some are switching between the clear and solid shields depending on the conditions. the clear shields are better for technical visibility but more brittle and not as flexible, where as the nylon/plastic/solid shield is more forgiving in an off but lacks the slow speed visibility. This stage and yesterdays stage are reasonably fast, maybe they prefer the solid over the clear shields?? I think that's why we see CD's solid shield today and yesterday but other pics of the his Yam have a clear shield. Hmm

Don’t ride so late into the night that you sleep through the sunrise.
Pie and coffee are as important as petrol.
Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of fuel before you can think straight.

Pizzolito crash also. Report said that several people crashed in nearly the same place. I couldn't understand Javi's answer.

from Dakar .com - they never asked!!

A discrete but emerging rider in the discipline up to today, Sam Sunderland made a grand entrance into the club of elite riders by brilliantly winning his first special stage on the Dakar. The provisional podium, still dominated by Barreda, boasts two Hondas.

Sometimes promises come into being before they are actually made. Until today, Sam Sunderland had occasionally made an impact on various legs of the rally-raid world cup, by picking up respectable finishes and even some stage victories. However, to date, he has had a frustrating time on the Dakar, dropping out after three days of racing in 2012 and withdrawing a month before last year, due to fracturing both his wrists! Despite this double dose of bad luck, the Honda team did not hesitate to reserve him a bike for its ambitious Dakar programme. This inspired choice has been handsomely rewarded on only the rally's second day, with his dazzling victory between San Luis and San Rafael. Having started well behind his team-mate, Joan Barreda, the 23-year old Englishman superbly overtook Michael Metge and Juan Pedrero on the first part of the route. However, it was in the portion of dunes towards the end of the special that the resident of Dubai showed his youthful but confident and masterful experience of sand. On the finishing line he marvellously grabbed his first special stage victory, after only 4 days spent on the Dakar in total and can now claim to be a serious outsider for the podium… as long as he can maintain this excellent form and pace, as well as avoiding mistakes.
Go Sam go
