I was about to comment on that.

Interesting that the two most experienced Dakar winners, have found themselves less than a minute apart, behind someone who's explosive riding style can only be termed risky.

Hard to argue that they aren't exactly where they want to be right now.

It seems difficult to climb back up out of the dip by the same route, so the riders will have to follow the dry river bed in the bottom of the valle


Wasn't Juan Pedrero off course somewhere else?
Yes, and he found Sam, Gong, and Graham that got lost before that, maybe following Faria's tracks who also got lost.

Altitude....

If Barreda continues with this style, I doubt that either he, or the bike will make it to the end.... It is a situation that statistically will happen.

found this about Pablo Quintanilla

bad google translate - sorry

Pablo Quintanilla was doing a great race in the 2014 Dakar . The Chilean rider was on the twenty-location and aprontes standings, including victory in the Challenge included Inca, did think it was going to have a great career.

However, Tuesday was forced to withdraw from the competition by a blow on the route of the third stage, comprising between San Rafael and San Juan . The pilot tried to overtake another bike and there you hit a stone in his right hand. The fifth region had to be moved to bivouac trip and was attended by doctors, who confirmed that there was still competing.

"I was going to another bike and jumped me live rock in his hand. Could not continue and I am now waiting for the diagnosis. It's part of the paste and what we do. Was bad luck and not my mistake as last year "Quintanilla said after receiving medical care.

After failing to follow the difficult nut contesting the national pilot test immediately return to Santiago.

Although the diagnosis is pending, the pilot said he suffered a "fracture" in one of his fingers. With this, it adds to withdrawals of Christian Peralta and Francisco Massu. Another who left was Luis Eguiguren in cars.

We all knew he's an amazing quick rider, he's proven that many times before.

To me, the only point he has to prove is that he can be an amazing, quick, and consistent rider, and that point is still almost 2 weeks away.

I'm more impressed by CdP and MC's ability to filter to the front without any particular drama... I imagine they are more interested in each other's relative position, than they are in Barreda's. Their money, and mine, is that he has drama sometime in the time remaining. Hard to argue that 13 minutes is a durable lead at this point in the rally, with those two breathing down your neck.

But, definitely an impressive performance. And 13 minutes, is 13 minutes- a lot, in this company!

Also interesting when you consider that we all "knew" CdP was headed for Honda last year... interesting that he has taken a clearly smaller program (with Yamaha) and still found a way to put together his trademark consistency and success. I'll be curious if he can keep it up.
