Coma
It was a very nice day. I had a problem when I got a stone between my gears and my engine and this lead to me blocking my gearbox, so I had to stop to take it out. After that it was possible to continue without problems. It took a few minutes, but it's just like that sometimes. I'm happy that even after getting some trouble like this I'm still in the race and still in the fight.


Duclos
When you're in the right place, you've got good visibility. Everything went well. The positions changed a little just before we hit the dunes. Afterwards, I pushed a little harder and I caught up with Cyril who had fallen. I saw that he was stood up and was ok, so I continued. He caught up with me and we rode together to the finish. It was a stage without any problems.

David Reeve Update

This was from LAST NIGHT after stage 1:

As you know by now David has had a very good day. He came in very chuffed with his progress today and on the debrief with Scott, handled the issues that he had problems with on the bike very professionally.

Scott, Jaime and Michael have been very good to us. The problems that David had with the bike are not serious and are fixable with most being simple adjustments for comfort and handling.

The most serious problem was the issue of the behavior of the Rekluse Clutch that was fitted to the bike by Scott just before the bike went for Technical Verification on the 3rd January. David has used this type and make of clutch before and he really likes them. As he has broken his wrist in previous events, it assists him to keep pressure off the wrist when he is riding. David and Scott have decided to refit the Standard KTM Clutch pack that made way for the Rekluse Clutch back into the bike, and Scott has done that this afternoon. So all should be good with the clutch tomorrow.

David is very cheerfull. He managed to get a good shower in the RV avoiding the long walk from our pit to the showers, which was a bonus. He then walked down to check out results with me. He is lying 33rd at the moment after today and 2nd in the Rookie class. All in all a really good result for the 1st day.

Tomorrow is a normal day at the office for all of us. David starts at 05:00 hrs sharp (10:00 hrs Zambian time)

The stage is between San Luis and San Rafael.

Liason 1: 304 kms Tar.
Special Stage: 359 kms comprising sections of narrow windy fast road, also sections of sand dunes with huge drop offs are expected in this special. This could be a difficult special.
Liason 2: 62 kms Tar.
Total stage length: 724 kms

Assistance Route for the RV and the Service crew is 305 kms. This is good as we should be in Pits ready for David when he gets in. We feel it is vital that one of the team meet him at the entrance so he doesn’t spend ages trying to find us. It also lifts his spirits to see a friendly face at the end of the days racing.

David is currently in the RV preparing his Road book for the morning with Brett “Smiley” Cummings who had a reasonable day today. Soon Gilly will pack them both off to bed so that they are fresh for the morning.

003 - JOAN BARREDA BORT

I had to ride to the finish with one eye on the road-book


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.


250 - MARCOS PATRONELLI
The Dakar starts today


It's a good day because I've got it over and done with, because it was very tough. I had to adjust the four tyres before entering the Nuhuil dunes. I crossed them with one of the wheels too deflated. It was losing air and 50 km from the finish, it hit a stone which meant I had to change it. In the end, I have to admit that I'm surprised, because with all the problems I had, I thought that the other quads would catch me up. You could say that the Dakar starts today. It was a genuine Dakar stage… The dunes were very hot and as a result it was difficult to get across them. Today there is going to be a lot of changes in the general standings.

Not the first time we've seen someone magically appear from nowhere.
It'll be fixed soon.
Enjoy your new helmet.
