I can't figure Barreda's tactics - he won the prologue, I assume could chose his start position, started 4th and is now 2 1/2 mins down. Maybe is was a conscious choice with the difficult overtaking there, but it didn't do Coma any harm starting from 11th - let's see how today unfolds?

Maybe BamBam was not too keen on the idea of leading out, given the tighter terrain, greater number of notes/instructions and the general intensity of the navigation/roadbook side of things? By starting on pos 4. at least he had a few others to follow? looks like the others just did a better job on nailing the ICO/route instructions.

Coma on the other hand had more "hares" out the front and his own roadbook skill/navigation is usually pretty much impeccable.

Barreda seems as though he is not too comfortable on this bike or this rally. His word was "dangerous".

Dangerous? Does that mean (in barreda speak) = too much time with the head down/reading, while the throttle stop is on WFO (BamBam style) ?


One of the trademarks of the Sardinia Rally has always been the frequency and intensity of the roadbook navigation, and the more enduro-like/technical nature of the terrain. It's not a "desert rally" in the classic sense of the word... neither the nature of the course, nor the bikes that are suited to it.

In that respect, I always thought it a bit of an oddity when compared to the other event's on the FIM CCR championship calender.

It would be similar to the situation if they had one of the FIA F1 races on an old antiquated pre-WWII circuit from the 30's...


oh, hang on... they have Monaco in the F1 calender still, don't they...?!

I guess the navigation plays an important role as TSC said... Terrain suits enduro bikes more, that's why all the teams arrived with their ''enduro'' versions and not the beasts. Except Catanese of course

Even our boy Chavo is there. On a Beta of all things. He says it makes the CRF450X feel like an old XR650. He had his choice between the Beta and the CRF and after riding the Beta, there wasn't much of a choice to be made.

Goncalves, Botturi, Coma and Barreda in less than 4 minutes after today's first SS

... and 6 (or 7 counting Husky) different bikes among the first 11, not bad!

Yep, Botturi jumps into the lead after SS5. A lot of lead changes.

It looks like there were some fun and games on the SS5 - didn't seem to get Coma too much, but HRC/ Speedbrain seem to have suffered - navigation?

For the world championship it could be a big blow to HRC.

So there we are then - it would be interesting to see the JBB road book to see why it stopped working

Question Sometimes, it's about what the press release doesn't say...

"Structual integrity failure due to blunt force trauma..." ?

either that...? or the HRC standard "electrical problems" ?

Stopped working is not usually a problem as there are manual knobs to use the roadbook. When they say that he waited for another rider to catch up, that means that the roadbook holder was completely useless, even for manual use.
Migtec is very difficult to jam completely and prevent manual use, therefore I guess that we will deal either with a ''structural failure of the roadbook'' or with ''structural failure of the roadbook''

So, Coma coasts and Botturi to win - Coma should be 2nd, collect more points than Speedy or JBB and take over the championship lead
