Latest Dakar stage two newsreel (read in the best of British stiff-upper-lip anchorman style):

Bam Bam shows bull a bigger set of balls, while Hardy says "Hello, helo" after heated debate with dunes. But in the end, it's Sam Sunderland fastest overland to snatch first.

Sunderland, [with] a bright future

[A] Young promise confirmed today, Sam Sunderland has signed with letters of gold, entry into the prestigious club of drivers who have a [stage win] under his belt. The provisional podium, which is still dominated by Barreda, welcomes two Honda bikes. ......

There are times when the promises come true even before they are real. So far, Sam Sunderland had been allowed to [tug] at the sleeve of the world cup of rally raid, and even fought for honorable positions [results], and sometimes even for stage wins. However, his experience in the Dakar was frustrating, abandoning the 2012 Dakar on the third day and a forced retirement last year, a month before the competition because of nothing [other than]... a double wrist fracture! Despite these ongoing [setbacks], the Honda team did not hesitate a second to reserve [a spot on their team] for its ambitious program for the Dakar. Good intuition has been rewarded the very second day, with a stunning upset in the special between San Luis and San Rafael. After [leaving] behind his teammate Joan Barreda, the young British driver of 23 years, had [passed] Juan Pedrero and Michael Metge in the first part of the [stage]. However, it has been on the section of dunes at the end of the special where this adopted [resident of] Dubai has[job] security and showed an amazing demonstration in the sand despite his youth. Crossing the finish line, he was awarded his first special when just [2] days of Dakar have passed, and from now on, is positioned as a strong candidate for the [overall] podium... [he] always keep a pace without getting too exposed to make mistakes.

Who has not made ​​the slightest mistake today was Joan Barreda. Opening the track, the Spaniar has kept his distance with his pursuers and reaching the end alone. His performance has earned him the double [win] the he counted on, but the result is still interesting if we think that Marc Coma has lost several minutes and second place in the overall standings, while Cyril Despres drops to 8th position provisional table to 8'2”’ [behind]. In fact, the only threat looming over the overall leader, is Francisco "Chaleco " Lopez, second fastest time in today and closest pursuer only 2'03'' behind.

I’m really happy. The bike was fantastic, it’s 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 wasn’t 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 I’m really pleased for my first Dakar victory and to continue Honda’s 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 wasn’t 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 I’m very happy with.

Paulo Goncalves - 8th - +07'45 - TEAM HRC
It was a really hard day’s 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 that’s 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 Hélder, and tried to push hard. I made a slight navigational error and I fell, which was worse for the bike than for me, as I’m fine. It could have gone better for me today, but considering I made it, I’m happy.

Helder is conspicuously quiet on statements at the moment

Coma engine problems?

Hoy ha sido un día complicado. Ha entrado una piedra en la palanca del cambio de marchas y me he quedado sin poder cambiar de marcha. He tenido que parar, sacar la palanca y quitar la piedra. Eso me ha requerido algunos minutos. Pero tenemos que intentar ser positivos, pensar que hemos superado el problema y no hemos perdido muchos minutos. La carrera está abierta. ¡Todavía nos quedan días para luchar!

Today was a difficult day. A stone [got jammed] in the gearshift lever and I had been unable to shift gears. I had to stop, pull the lever and remove the stone. That [lost] me a few minutes. But we have to try to be positive, to think that we have overcome the problem and we have not lost many minutes. The race is open.We still have days to fight!

No penalty for him.
Well spotted

They have issued the results for the day with only 140 bikes on that list.

Last man in was Gilbert Escale, and both brothers made it home.


Full results here:http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2014/docs...nts/CEM_02.pdf


Here are the updated overall results

Full results here: http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2014/docs...nts/CGM_02.pdf

The General results are pretty interesting:

What stands out to me is

1) The top 10 riders are all within 10 minutes of each other.
2) The top 23 riders are all within 30 minutes of each other.
3) the aliens are separates by a mere 1:23
4) Gonclaves and Faria are between Coma and Despres. This is interesting to me because they are also consistently good, albeit not as much as the aliens.
5) There are 4 makes of bike in the top five. Honda 2, Ktm 2 and Sherco 1
6) There are five makes in the top 10, dominated by KTM and Honda. All five makes appear again in the top 20.
7) Only 8 riders seem to be left in the malle moto class, from 15 yesterday.

Ben Grabham is the top newcomer in 9nth overall. This is outstanding given the closeness of the field this year.

Laia Sanz is 27th overall, also outstanding and the highest she has been if I am not mistaken

David Reeve is 32nd, but 2nd in the Production Class!

Robert van Pelt 42nd held his first position in malle moto class
Brett Cummings now 53rd held his position as 2nd in the Malle moto after a tough day. Just 16 minutes separate these two.

Go Brett GO

Everyone involved: Thanks for your sensitivity.

Sorry the mods were a little slow on it, you can blame it on me.
