I miss following your involvement with David and Co. but totally understand why you withdrew. Its a dangerous sport, and we have seen it again these last two days .

It's mind bogging.

It is such a cool f#cking race. Sorry to swear, but that's just the only way to describe it.
Thank you for this. Deep.

This thing is really hard to do and I have the utmost respect for anyone who is brave enough to attempt it. For me -for-now it is still a dream but I want to live it.

I must say I am delighted for Rafael Sonik's progress. He has been trying for years now. Crazy Polish guy but very nice chap too.

Jan Vesely (no68) is out

I just got information what happened to our friend Jan Vesely (private rider from Liberec, Czech Rep.).
He had almost no problems today. Tried to speed up after delays from yesterday, where he spent more time helping people then allows regulations. He was doing better on CP1 and arrived on the top of the highest hill in the special. There was "an organiser" as he call authorities from ASO and was showing racers direction. On the top of the hill appeared in GPS arrow to the finish - 8km. Direction of the arrow was matching what the person was showing. Angle from roadbook was matching and there were many tracks leading down that way. So he descent and with him about 5 other riders. In the walley was Ruben Faria´s motorcycle wreck also. The walley changed to a narrow canyon between 15m high rocks with just 1m distance between. Impossible to continue - dead end. In time when they rescued them by helikopter, there was at least 20 bikes. BTW, they spotted Patronelli´s crash there also. All this shit happened on one place.
He is now in marathon bivouac. Bikes will rescue tomorrow by helikopter. It´s end for all of them. In the bivouac is nobody from ORG, no jury no chance to do anything. Simply end of the race for them. Jan´s bike is untouched, perfect shape, he is in good shape as well - just cannot race anymore.

Regards to F5 team from him specifically (he wrote - regards to people from Adventure Rider who follow me and followed me in past years). Maybe you remember this shot, what he shooted for you:

This one is from 2012:

Joan Barreda has done the work and now the rally is his to lose. All he has to do is follow. And unless Despres and Coma team up to play a game with him, it would be difficult for either of those guys to ride 10-minutes faster then Barreda if he is keying off their navigation. He just has to follow and check and keep his bike running for the rest of the rally. So Simple! Right!!!

So many young guys get into this position ( I threw away a Nevada Rally lead of 8 minutes, idiot move!) because they forget to slow down. I hope he has good people around him to coach him. I know the Speedbrain team has some experienced guys there. He has taken the risk, now it is the others turn.

When Roma was on the bikes he was famous for getting the lead then trying to manage it, but having a difficult time most of the time.

Peterhansel owned this technique and it showed in the results.

The best part of all of this is if he does follow guys like Cyril, especially Cyril, watch them complain. But if you are a good navigator, you can play games and turn the tables. This rally, at this stage, is now down to navigation for everyone but Joan Barreda.

Good times, love to see it!
Very good point Jimmy!

I seem to remember though one time when Peterhansel got tired of being followed and doing the navigation for the other guy (Orioli) if my memory serves me right and he made purposely a navigation mistake. Stopped to fix supposedly a mechanical issue let the guy go and then turn around and headed the right way...

Good times, but I think you are right, it is his to lose now...

Strange remote-spectating another event in the Southern hemisphere, where it is also summer but about 16 hours behind us time-wise. Anyways, here's a link to some updated news, especially for the Aussies:
