Overwhelming feeling I have while watching images on EuroSport is of how little of this event we experience by following the WPs, CPs, and looking at computer screens ...
They traverse such massive amount of landscape and have so many incredible situations from dusk 'till down. Every day.
It's mind bogging.

Any news on Grabbo? looked like he was creeping up on the leaders ascending to the waypoint on top but dropped many places on the way down to the finish.

Edit: The Aussie forum update suggests Ben and Sam (and possibly a gaggle of other riders) made a nav error on the way down and were sidetracked into a canyon of no escape. Cost them over a couple of hours. :-(

Maybe Eurosport is F5'in it too and messing with the broadcasts for chuckles. Don't tease them too much or it will be snooker 24/7

''Crew and David Reeve are in San Juan resting in RV together. David tore his knee after crashing and hitting a rock....in a brace, comfortable and relaxing....but I'm sure heart broken.

Still waiting for confirmation regarding Team Redverz - Kevin Muggleton to Dakar . Crew was not allowed to assist due to it being the marathon stage. Crew, nor Kevin has responded if he was able to get rolling and start race or not.
Waiting..........''

Good to see you back in the asylum Ludo

I guess it's safe to assume Kevin Muggelton is out. I feel horrible for him.

Freedom Team loses 3 racers in the last 2 days, bummer.

It will be interesting to see how many bikes start tomorrow. Bound to be a large group out there in the dark tonight struggling to finish.

Update on Italian riders withdrawal:
Toia fell hard during yesterday's stage and fractured a scapula. Managed anyway to finish the course witht the bike, and got to the medical tent on his legs.
De Filippo finished yesterday's stage as well but suffered from severe dehydration and was not able to start today.
Talini (58 years old Dakar "rookie") retired for exhaustion before finishing the stage and got earlier at the bivouac with his bike.

Also, even if he is listed in the standings as arrived at ASS, Alex Zanotti (TM factory rider) have been disqualified because did not reach the start of the special stage in time. He was the rider with Kevin and had a problem with his tyre as well.
