Grabbo's second Dakar, he finished 15th last year.
I reckon 6th off the start tomorrow is about as high as you would want to be going into a marathon stage. A very sharp operator is Ben, and possibly the toughest man in the rally.

It's almost 22h local time and we got in:

148 of 173 bikes
88 of 147 cars
39 of 70 trucks

So including quads there are about 120 on the course in the dark?

Ok.....thanks for your cooperation. Us "wives" didn't want it public knowledge until Elizabeth was notified and I wasn't able to reach her right away. Kevin was the slip up (then started to go viral). Hand slapped ;p

There is nothing worse than us wives being at home and hearing bad news about spouses online, and not always accurate. Wanted her personally contacted first.

It's all good now. She's been notified. And she seems fine. But I'm sure she's not.

Details are still very sketchy. Men don't give good details in texts and don't answer the important questions I ask ;p

Peter's bike did catch on fire. He did have a helicopter ride. To biv is my guess, not hospital. But they won't answer that. Said he is 100% fine. So assuming just a ride in. Said he's smiling.....like always, right. And again stressed he is FINE!
