I was amazingly lucky.
That was at the Dos Sertoes wasn't it? I remember that. Quite the effort Neil!

You got 2015 Malle Moto in the bag.

I shall also say goodnight - big day tomorrow! - and leave you with this...

In case you've not seen them yet - a great selection of photos (as ever) from the Boston Globe site:

http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/201...ally_2014.html

Looks like they even caught our Pointy Man(ny) in the act... and it turns out there were two of them!* - no wonder there was so much confusion!



*disclaimer. according to the caption this photo is actually from stage 11, and that is Etienne Lavigne and Dr. David Delgado... but when has that stopped stoking a good conspiracy theory eh?!

Night all.

Poor Barreda. I can't even imagine how gutted and one would feel after o many days. So much speculation about him riding aggressively, but look what they are riding through! I know I'd crash plenty. I'm gracious enough to give him a break, and I think Honda should be proud and thankful for his efforts. It's not all lost, the motorsport loving world has been watching him, and saw what Honda and the team were capable of accomplishing. HRC is a big machine, but you'd never know it from the giddy enthusiasm everyone in the team seems to ooze. I've enjoyed watching their 'behind the scenes' videos, and everyone is eager and excited. For them it's business, for us it's entertainment (sadly). Nice work Joan

Another great and constant ride for Jordi and Pain. Quietly going about their work, and with great results. I hope Yamaha allows him (Olivier) the finish he deserves.

They could advertise their stage wins, the 2nd place, ok, fair enough, they learned a lot, difficult to dethrone KTM etc... Marketing people will manage to erase the bad lines in this Dakar... But now? ... Boy this is difficult....
Well it would be hard to sell the places but...easy sell for their bikes. Tested tough by bambam. Ran hard and rough, crashed and bashed, beaten and smashed....and it's still going. Ride honda tough in any terain and it won't let you down.

Sorry for the late reply still catching up lol.

It's not anymore. He is getting towed from another racer. Guess which bike is he attached to? I give you a hint: it has three letters on its fairings but those are not HRC...

From Dakar FB Page

I am somewhat surprised by this.

Yesterday, Dakar posted those NSF photos of Ana Polina standing in the Bivy and on the side of the road.

Today they they post this.

(Now, I am certainly not complaining. I rather like it. Just surprised.
