24 bikes out there, 23 riders

Good news is it isn't a crazy liaison after they get in. Shitty for the mechanics though...full overhaul is what you'd want before the marathon stages.

Wrk2surf might be earning his keep tonight

Through WP4 (about halfway through the SS) in 161st position. The intermediate waypoints (other than WP4) have had no data displayed for any of the riders today. WP99 is the end of the SS, so it looks like he's still out on the second half of the SS somewhere.

Radio Maray

Here's how I listen to Radio Maray: there's a free webservice called TuneIn Radio that carries local radio broadcasts from all over the world. They have apps for every kind of device, and I can vouch for the Android version working well. Just install (or visit the website if on a pc) then search for Radio Maray. Easy peasy.

Team Manager Alex Doringer said he was happy to have his riders in safely and said Stage Two had been a good result for Ruben and Villadoms.

"Grabham had a fantastic ride and Riaan is improving every day," he said. Speaking of the marathon stage, Doringer added: "It will be tricky. It will be very rough on riders and bikes and we'll know more after the first stage of the marathon. The guys will have to use their brains, not go flat out and think about how they can take care of their bikes and manage the second stage of the marathon."

Sam Sunderland - 1st - 3:42'10 - TEAM HRC
Iím really happy. The bike was fantastic, itís been a great day with a mixture of different terrains, speed and technical zones. We got to the dunes which I get on really well with. It wasnít a really long stretch, but it went well. I crossed the river which was deeper than I had expected, which got a few laughs out of the folk. But Iím really pleased for my first Dakar victory and to continue Hondaís winning streak.

Joan Barreda - 3rd - +02'00 - TEAM HRC
I knew that it was going to be a day to be on the look-out for animals. When I was about 70 km away from the finish-line, with the big hazards out of the way and the navigation through the dunes completed, I crossed a river with low-visibility and came across a cow on the curve. I tried to avoid it, but it came running out and I ran into it. It wasnít a great impact, but it broke the higher part of the navigation, and I had to work the roadbook manually. The first part was really speedy and I was opening a gap over the rivals. From kilometre 250 to 300 I had to stay really focused, which Iím very happy with.

Paulo Goncalves - 8th - +07'45 - TEAM HRC
It was a really hard dayís rally. I had a couple of issues with the gas in the dunes and I lost a bit of time. It could have been a better day, but what the heck... I managed to finish and thatís the most important thing. Tomorrow we start out from good positions so the fight will go on.

Javier Pizzolito - 21th - +21'22 - TEAM HRC
It was a beautiful stage, with a lot of kilometres and much dust. I went off with Hťlder, and tried to push hard. I made a slight navigational error and I fell, which was worse for the bike than for me, as Iím fine. It could have gone better for me today, but considering I made it, Iím happy.
