Ya know looking at just how pinched that is it could be possible that he burnt a valve or something too in addition to his electrical problems.

Here's some interesting thoughts about tomorrow...
.....And above all else, what trickery will ms. Murphy bring to the table in tomorrows last and final finish to another superb Dakar?

What was a year in anticipation... Is now only seemingly moments away from an end.

And a big thanks to this awesome adv family. It's nice to know there are other rally F5eaks out there besides me.
Great post there Desert Surfer! Thanks man!

David Casteu via Email

Friday, January 17, 2014 - Step 12

It is a feat that David succeeded Thursday in the 12th stage El Salvador - La Serena, comprising 349 km Liaison 350 km special . Despite a broken collarbone , the Frenchman was ranked 8th in effect at 11'03 '' winner , Cyril Despres . The rider from Nice retains 10th place overall , 4 h 01'42 '' leader , Marc Coma ( KTM). Stopped for a bite to eat and refuel at a gas station on the route to La Serena, David says :

"This morning I was 20 minutes early on the 11th , the Slovak Jakes (KTM) and I said:" . . I must keep my 10th " I started with the knife between the teeth It there was plenty of navigation , I pushed to make a difference , I had a good pace for the distance and I won my bet , I stuck him 1 minute. Yet I can not move the arm I can not do a very small movement , I try to pay attention but when I exceed this angle , I suffer greatly. I left exhausted because of the special concentration . "

With now 21 minutes ahead of the 11th , David should reach the finish Saturday in the top 10, even if nothing is played: "This is the top and front (another Slovak Svitko ) is ! 9 minutes ... " think he is dreaming before continuing: " But now, back in ten with this injury , it's crazy ! "

This Saturday is the day of great happiness for David who will forget his pain to take full advantage of the last kilometers of the final stage La Serena - Valparaiso ( 378 km link and 157 km of special ) .


It really is crazy what David has done given his injury. I'm so chuffed for him as well because he was unable to finish as well as this since 2009 if im not mistaken.

59 does not have a rear fender.....he must have cartwheeled his bike going to the starting line....... he should have slowed down a bit.

Ah, got that and the other(s) - I thought it was much more dramatic than having a porn star on the team

Phew - the longest catch up of the 2 weeks - thanks Bam Bam and thanks for the ride, it was a hell of a one while it lasted

I can only imagine it is even more so in the Dakar bivouac.

To the riders: May you all make it to the podium tomorrow.
Even in the HRC camp? - I'm still catching up, but haven't see the usually Spanish biased (their pr guy is Spanish) but the HRC press wagon seems to be driven by BB also - it's gone very silent - probably still struggling to see how they are to spin this

Roma v perfect Peter - leaving or not, team order or not, I would have thought the publicity having a 12 times Dakar winner would be greater?

What if peter perfect has a contract that offers him x for winning a y for coming second. Team orders say come second and not first - - mr pp could be looking for x - y non?

But the first issue could be mechanical after all and then he got snowballed.
So, "Mechanical causes crash" possibly a real case of crying wolf then - certainly caught a lot of people out for a lot of time, would be interesting to hear the mechanics (or engineers for HRC) version of that one

BB get it home in the end. And it's a f5&$*duty of a WC to do all he can. So with him staying at BB he could hep navigate and even tow him the liason ... or jumpstart the bike like the car was doing. That is comradship inside a team.

F5&#%, does he even stopped and talked to BB?
Easy - Pizzolito was Helders wc, JBB's went up in smoke last week Now Javier was probably covering both of them and made a judgement call on the option to take - nothing wrong in that?
