Somewhat surprising that the ASO would do this after all the talk about this edition of the Dakar being longer and harder.

Plus, it comes just two days after the a stage which ended up being the first ever with no moto withdrawls (per Bluebull) and only three ended up being very late to the Bivy from what I noticed (Millet and the Escale Bros.).
#137 didn't start today

SAM:
There weren't so many dunes, maybe 50 km or so, but it was definitely a lot of fun and a big mixture of terrains and different type of riding – some technical stuff, then some really high speed stuff. All in all for me it was a good stage. I arrived at the finish in the top seven. They said I was first, so we'll wait and see if anyone else comes in faster than that. I'll be really happy if I take the stage. It will be the first one for me on the Dakar. It's great. The bike was awesome. Without all the work that goes on behind the scenes this is nothing, as you know, so I'm really grateful for the opportunity from Honda and all my sponsors. Hopefully I can carry on in this direction and have a good overall finish.

Chaleco
Today the first part was very, very speedy and the second part was very sandy with dunes. That was ok for my machine. The end was very technical, but I think it was a good day. For me it was good and I'm happy for the new team. My motorbike was the second best today so I‘m very happy. The Dakar is very long. For me the finish in Valparaiso is very important, but today was ok.

BamBam
I was in luck in the last part. I did some really good navigation. It was unbelievable to go alone there in the dunes that were so difficult. When I reached the last 80 km it was just one track, so I knew the dangerous navigation was finished and I said to myself, okay, good job. After one corner without visibility, there were a lot of boulders and I hit one. It's possible that I broke something. The bike is not so badly broken at all, but part of the navigation system had a big impact on the boulder so it's completely broken. So I had to ride to the finish with one eye on the road-book. I lost a little bit of time, but it's an incredible job and I'm really happy.

CD
Well it was a really, really fast first part of the stage. The bike is not going too fast because we want to save the engine a bit, that's our choice. But it was ok. Marc and Joan Barreda overtook me and gained quite a lot of minutes at refuelling, but after that I managed to come back in the dunes. I had a little crash on the side of a dune and I saw some stars afterwards! I also smashed my camel back so I haven't had water for 100 km. It was tough.

Sure doesn't seem like it was tested appropriately. I don't know how that program expects to challenge for a win when their competition is testing year round.

So sad for him. PAU's just sort of always "been there;" maybe not the fastest, but there.

Probably not.

That was from the Mischa's Tracker but, the Dakar Gaps Page also lists it. It isn't listed on the Rankings Page though.

Tracker error, or he left the stage and went by road.

Dehydration on top of (slight?) brain concussion doesn't sound very good for Cyril.

Pal is always great to follow. Bummer he is out and so soon too. At least it is his bike that is broken and not himself!
