That's a late start for the bikes, eh? At least they can get a little bit of rest.

Is there a 2 hour penalty for hitting the twelve hour mark?

Nothing wrong with a civilized party

and there is no argument based on this video:

even if you don't speaky, start at 8:45 and watch the footie. Good stuff.
They've gone all out - better than some of the hyped up stuff I've seen broadcast for events here. Granted it's probably a hollow stage set mockup, but they've got a Mini on set. They're SERIOUS.
Wow. I really need to get up on my spanish.

I like the segment about halfway through where they ask about childhood aspirations. Nasser mentions watching the Dakar at 16 - saying his dad hopes he'll race it one day... no pressure.

Time to go silent. Early roll call.

Hopefully that would be the worst of it


I'm only asking because I was poking around micha's tracker, looking for long lost italians, and I noticed everyone on my list who cracked the twelve hour mark had at least 2 hours in penalties.. unless I've got the cart before the horse, and the penalties put them at twelve hours...

Have basically only had time to catch up to here beyond doing the dad things, so I fear I am getting snowballed, and its only day 2!

This didn't translate perfectly, but sums it up pretty well for Cyril...

"I arrived a little too quickly on a note in the road book at around kilometre 250 and went over the handlebars. Fortunately it was a soft landing so the bike wasn’t damaged but it took me a while to dust myself down and get going again and inevitably I lost time. Overall a day to forget."

Following the description and the elevation profile, they certainly come down on the west side of the hill..... guessing based on routes I can see, but possible Bivi Areas somewhere near the towns?? 31°29'43.37"S 69°25'32.71"W

seems like it (with everybody with 5+ hours), but what's the point... they are already late anyway.

So tomorrow: Stage 3 Bikes route is different. Marathon Stage. (Thanks again, Uller for the images)







Let me tell you riding at 4,000m + is no joke! Most people will start to feel dizzy if they stop. A thing as simple as picking up your bike become a major major task. I'm sure they will shutoff CP2 early to be sure.

I get the feeling there will be some single track and some steep hill climbs after CP2. It will also be the 1st ever that the Dakar does off piste navigation at over 4,000m. You could get into a world of trouble if you go the wrong way up there.

For a few minutes toxic britney was at the top of my subscription list. That was a fantastic 3 minutes.

Wow 17 bikes out from Stage 2 (so far). A high attrition day.
