Well there may or there may not be rules against changing gearing - it just depends on whether you are French or not (and if you are not French it depends on whether you are in front of the French riders)

Follow Ned here:
www.trackingdakar.nl

You can select all US riders or rider per race number and track them all day without having to depend on the dakar.com site.
Thanks for that! I tuned your link to pick exactly that, the US Bikes and to track Ned, ordered by stage positions: CLICKY

Here is what it says after stage 1, late on 1/1/12:

Pos _?_ Name________________ Make WP1_____ _?_ WPA_____

75 (77) 081 - SUESSE NEW (USA) KTM +00:04:07 (64) +00:10:07

Question: How to read some of the columns:

If his final stage position is 75, then what is 2nd number 77 in () - position after what was completed ?
WP1 vs. WPA: Is this Waypoint 1 (the first one), vs. Waypoint Arrivee (finish) perhaps ?
What is the (64) between WP1 and WPA? Is it his position after WP1 ?

Go NEDURO !

Terrific first day Ned-I can't see straight because I didn't get to sleep until 5:45 this morning for a couple hours but I'm so happy and excited and glad the tension from the first day has finally broken!

Keep up the great work-and remember, smooth is fast-Lima or bust!!

Question: How to read some of the columns:

If his current position is 75, then what is 2nd number 77 in () - position after WP1 or ?
WP1 vs. WPA is this Waypoint 1 (the first one), vs. Waypoint Arrivee (finish) perhaps ?
What is the (64) between WP1 and WPA? Is it his position after WP1 ?

Go NEDURO !
Ned's final postition for SS1 is 75th. He started as 77th rider on the track. His race number is 081.
SS1 had only one Waypoint/Checkpoint. Tomorrow's SS2 will have 4. He was 4 mins. 7 secs. behind the leader at WP1, then in 64th position. He arrived at the finish waypoint (way point arriveé, WPA) 10 mins. 7secs. behind the winner.

Hope this helps. Don't be afraid to ask. I know it's confusing.

Ned,

Congrats on a fine first day . . . Has to be hard to change gears from all the organization, the hype, to getting in the groove. Have been following all day, and am glad to know you are in the bivouac area.

love you - Mom

Ok so (77) means 77th rider to start, will this vary each stage and track your overall class position ?

Also, what does it mean for Jonah when WP1 is not shown (all ---'s) yet he finished 10th? Is that just a missed timing event? I mean you DO have to be clocked at every Waypoint, right? or only at the final one?

AFAIK, gearing is free to change(wheels are free to exchange, etc). IMO, not sure why he says this as I ride the same bike withwhat I know was the gearing he started with and with the D908 tires on, cut or not, it was very manageable. Then again, I don't have that much fuel on board or that much spares/equipment etc either. I can see being down on power, and it will only worsen exponentially with elevation. If the guy on the 150XC can make it through though, Ned should be fine.

With regards to his finish today, and knowing Neds relative speed, my guess is that he's not even riding to 75% of the safe zone on his scale. Wich is smart, keep that wrist healthy and save the bursts for when others make mistakes in Navigation!

I've rarely lived this vicariously through someone else but the connectivity is so good now, that I really do almist feel like I'm there...

knowing only how fast Bill can be, I can only say, how does he know if he's geared to high when he obviously never even hit the ground?

true enough but they were talking about Ned, not Bill-you should pay attention to what thread you're on
