I agree... Unless they are on the podium at the end, all the stage wins won't mean squat... (not at head office at any rate!)*


*And by that I mean that while an individual [stage] win is great for the rider's moral, the team as a whole will have failed to reach their goal from a manufacturer's point of view.

Looks like the heavy investment is paying off.
Or you can look at it from the aliens perspective

I am in San Juan. everything went well, finally almost. I was a little scared at first because there was a crossing of Rio with a lot of water so I decided to run cool, my hand to avoid damaging the bike. Finally, seeing that the others were either navigational errors or fell, I decided to take a faster pace. Chaleco joined me in the last 40-50 kilometers and we drove together. So start of this rally is going great, the peaks suit me well and above all I do not take my head, I ride to feel, I feel safe on the bike, I do not have strength and I the margin. I intend to continue in this state of mind, I forbid me anything, I'm just confident. Physically I'm OCD and I look forward to more.
Thank you for your messages I receive, it warms the heart.

Dakar Site:

Walter van Sinten is gisteravond niet aan de finish gekomen van etappe 2. Marcel Vermeij sprak hem vandaag in het bivak: "Het rijden ging goed maar in de duinen heb ik een navigatiefout gemaakt waardoor ik compleet verdwaald was. Op den duur kwam ik ook nog zonder water te zitten waardoor verder doorgaan onmogelijk was. Toen heb ik de helikopter opgeroepen die mij en de motor uit de woestijn gehaald hebben." Op een later moment zal er een voicemail volgen.

Walter van Sinten is last night not to come the finish of stage 2. Marcel Vermeij spoke to him today in the bivouac: "driving went well but I have a navigational error made in the dunes which I completly had lost his way. In the end I came to sit still without water whereby also continue was impossible. Then I called the helicopter that me and the engine from the desert. " At a later time there will be a voicemail.

I fully expected not to understand the Spanish bits and the French bits....but not to understand the Englishtec is harsh
