This must be as he is watching the helicopter haul his bike away?

Because I also love racing motorcycles.

The problem I had.....and it caused friction between me and my Dad (mechanic and also an engineer) was that I wanted everything my way. Once he put me in my place a time or two and a few others pulled me to one side and had a word, I realised what to let go and was not important.

It was so important to have him there and have his skills. Racing would have been so much harder without my Dad, period. I could run things by him and likewise if he was unsure, he'd run them by me, nothing got left to chance. He did not interfere with Mousse changing, road book marking or my food / hydration regime and I did not interfere with bike fixing, servicing or preparation.

Working together on the World Rounds before the race set us up perfect for the Dakar. He knew how I liked the bike and it was always like new every morning when I threw a leg over it, an incredible feeling. I remember one day, he even replaced damaged stickers.

We are closer now than ever, thanks to the Dakar!

I have to say though, it's now after 3pm in Argentina? - that is a daunting prospect for Kevin who is still faced with 100km of Liaison and then 300km of special before the bivouac tonight...

Dig deep Kevin - we all want you to see this through.

Twitters are writing that apparently Patronelli left his quad just before it jumped 400 m down a cliff!
