I agree - but for the ASO, the Dakar image 'thrives' on the drama - and anything they can do to spice up what is usually a formality stage...

What I can't work out, is whether this is an advantage to Despres, a disadvantage, or actually makes little difference to the overall... other than have the #1 arrive on the podium at the end like you say...

Jx

btw. Can anyone confirm - is it only the bikes in reverse order, or the cars too? - if so, that would be *carnage!!!

(*ooooh, see what I did there?!)

I hate surprises

Anyway, this possibility was foreseen in the regulations:

Quote:
The starting order and starting gap for the Start Podium (4th January 2014) and Finish Podium (18th January 2014) will be subject to an Information Note.
And will make for the climax arrival, winner is last man coming in, they need for TV and crowd satisfaction. Just hope the 10 minute dust gap will be enough to keep the top wolfs apart from the slower heroes.

Again in this pic, Barreda's exhaust looks ok... So indeed he either stopped and fixed it or we are looking at different dates?

It was only natural to see him on the start line of the Dakar last year. For his first experience on the rally, the 37-year-old, part of the BAS Dakar team, managed to finish the race in 110th position and that in itself was quite an exploit, although he did finish over 25 hours behind race winner Cyril Despres. For his second Dakar, he will again be on his KTM 450 RR but this time completely on his own. Courageous Jan Bastiaan will indeed be part of the malle-moto class.

not too beat a dead horse.....

Shouldn't have one of the hrc guys waited for bam bam after the ass yesterday to tow him in? I'm wondering what Bam Bam thought after he pushed his bike across the line, looked around and thought WTF.

KTM must be loving those photos

Wicked They COULD... but WOULD they...?

Was thinking last night about Sven, Nani and Peters little dilemma... and what decision they will come to?

If Peterhansel takes the win... he is in the record books... but cardinal sin against the team order. And the team boss is in a position where he was dictated to (not something they like).

If Nani win's or places 2nd there is still an asterix by his name in any case.


So what to do...?

Orchestrated DEAD HEAT... TWO winners... a tie!!?? Unprecendented.

Peterhansel is off first... with three minutes ahead of Nasser then 3 minutes gap back to Nani...

They roll along at moderate coast speed and by mid stage they ar in formation 1, 2, 3 nose to tail... Now Nasse has made 3 minutes on Peterhansel and Nani 6 minutes. They proceed to the end.

at the ASS timing marker Peter rolls over first, with Nasser right behind.

Nani parks on the line for 5 minutes an 34 seconds... then crosses the timing marker...


Would they do it...?

It would be the ultimate show of team strength and almost humiliate the opposition... !? orchestrate a DAKAR dead heat?

I LIKE it!!!?
