The distances for tomorrow, if they keep the stage as is and don't shorten it.
Previous years, WP tracking only started working on stage 3 or 4 and breaks again on the last stage so nothing to worry about.



WP1 @ 52km
WP2 @ 106km
WP3 @ 147km
CP1/WP4/refuel @ 188km
WP5 @ 217km
WP6 @ 272km
WP7 @ 287km (or @ CP2)
CP2 @ 300km
WP8 @ 303km (or @ CP2)
WP9 @ 348km
ASS @ 373km

And hopefully, fimp gets through the stage and Pal gets his bike back

It's getting late, lots of bikes still out there....

It sure went from "all the flock is accounted for and in the pen" (stage 1)

to "the vultures are in a holding pattern" (stage 2)

for many riders in a short space of time... didn't it?

I'm not too surprised at Reeves and Grabbhams' performance. I would think that the curent terrain would be more suited to what they have done in Africa and Australia. It's been said before - the higher up rankings are always helped out by having good support in place.

Oh, and While it's on my mind Grabbo? How about Grabb'em? He's about caught up to them by now hasn't he..?

Sure did. Some sizeable time gaps were made today, in all classes.

Tomorrow sure looks like a tough one, even without 100 km of it. Not to mention the fact of no service tomorrow night.

I foresee some rim riding on stage 4.

"- There was a whole bunch that would take everything I own and have. It was a place you don't want to hang around.

Dramatic for Ullevålseter in the Dakar Rally .


( Dagbladet ) : In the evening it was announced that Pål Anders Ullevålseter had to break this year's edition of the Dakar Rally . And under mildly mysterious circumstances .

The engine at Ullevålseter's KTM seized after about 290 km of the day's special stage totaling 433 km between San Luis and San Rafael . Why the engine quit is completely uncertain for the team and have no oil shortage to do, which is often the cause.

After the engine stopped , five men met Ullevålseter and said they would help him get the bike back to the pits.

- I know where the bike was, but I do not know if I'll get it back . It stood in the middle of some sand dunes where there are very many road sections. We have the Iritrack satellite system, so the organizer can see where it stands . It is normally picked up 12-15 hours after I 've been there, says Ullevålseter Dagbladet.

Drama
And here started the drama . This is a bike that is packed with valuable equipment and, therefore, the 45 -year-old was wary of letting the five men take care of it alone . He should then have been invited to ride in a car where one of the five men's brother was the driver . This he accepted .

- It was no problem to leave the bike , because this was no place to be at. It was over 40 degrees , and a whole bunch that will have everything you own and have. There are so many strange things happening , says Ullevålseter .

- There was so much unsafe surroundings. I figured that if I leave this place , they'll steal my instruments or entire bike . So I took with me three instruments worth NOK 20 000 a piece.

Fraud ?
After about 20 minutes drive got the man who drove Ullevålseter a call from one of the men who were left with the bike with the message that his brother has taken his own life. Ullevålseter was then released , and got a ride with someone else while the previous driver went to find the police.

- There were five of us there. So I got a ride with two that would drive me out of the desert . There was talk of NOK 1000 for a 100km ride . When we had run 20km , one guy got a call . One of the other three shot himself .

Think you 've been scammed?

- No, this happened. He is told to contact the police . Because the brother of one in the car is dead . There were lots of police along the route . I have not paid anything for the trip. He got the phone out and talks to the police. Then I jump out of the car and find someone else to hitchhike with . He would not have the money anyway, he says.

- I'm pretty sure it has nothing with it ( fraud ) to do. Ever since I landed in Buenos Aires, so there have been so many strange things . There 's nothing surprises me anymore.

50/50
Nevertheless , Ullevålseter are disappointed after the race is already on the second leg . This was not what he had set for himself before the start.

- It's amazingly disappointing. This is Day 2. I try to console myself that this was not Day 12. I have mechanics that I've had for 12 years , and we have run eleven times in Dakar without problems. Everything is new and everything should be fine. It is not something mechanical that is the mechanic 's fault here , because then he would have shot himself , he said.

When asked if he thinks he's ever going to see his bike again , he's not so sure .

- It's probably 50/50. It would be nice to get it back whole , he said.

- About three days coming down the sponsors . I can well serve as a guide.

Modest start
The Norwegian had a rather modest start to the race and was number 43 on the race's first leg , before hisadventure today ended abruptly.

Ullevålseter will otherwise remain in South America the next day to meet the sponsors who have made ​​the trip over , and to support Francisco Arredondo and the rest of Team Ullevålseter ."

Awww... C'mon now Rob... I've seen you and a lotta blokes you know, chew panadien forte like they were tic tacs, and skulk off outta site of the medic tent, so as to avoid the doc's "thumbs down".

With all on the line (cost of a DAKAR campaign) it is amazing what some people will supress or disguise not to get the DNF on medical grounds...
