Brett Cummings is in

So for the people wot know, does he get back the time that he spent helping David Reeve after he was injured? If so, would that happen automatically, or is there a procedure to request it?

Is anyone else feeling just a bit guilty about sittin in front of the screen with Salsa and Chips while these guys are out there giving it everything?

Makes me want to at least go out and ride hard and somehow transfer the energy ......but then I'd miss unfolding events.

figured out what happened to Ingo Zahn yesterday:

Deutsches Dakar Aufgebot hat sich halbiert: Ingo Zahn ist nach einem Unfall nicht mehr dabei. Auf der zweiten Dakar Etappe erlitt Ingo Zahn nach einem Sturz einen Bruch der Schulter sowie von drei Rippen.

Ein unter dem Sand verborgener Fels schleuderte Ingo über den Lenker seiner 450 KTM Rallye. Das Motorrad traf danach den Piloten so unglücklich, dass es zu den Verletzungen kam. Den Rallyeorganisatoren gelang es, den Verletzten recht schnell zu bergen und in ein lokales Krankenhaus zu überführen. Dort wurden dann die Verletzungen festgestellt.



quick translation:
he went over the handlebars and got hit by the bike, which resulted in a broken shoulder and 3 broken ribs. After a visit in the hospital, he's on the way home, and plans to be back next year.

Can somebody confirm situation with Patronelli?
Looks like Stefan Svitko finished 10th. If so, that's great result

Nope. No guilt at all.

That's the heart of rally, right there!

Sending best wishes to Ruben.

Feel terrible for our mates who are out. Pedro, Kevin, DR- these are people who put a lot on the line to follow a dream, and IMO, we have to think of them as conquering heroes, even if we all wish it had held together for a few more days. The Dakar is a year long odyssey, they made it so close (and yet still, so far) to their goal.

Mike J appears to be steady along in the mid 80's, fingers crossed for him to be thru CP2 soon...
