Bill was outpacing Ned early, but slowed massively between WP2 and WP3. Jonah was well ahead of him physically at that point (by an hour and a half). Tough to predict when he'll come through.

It took Ned about 46min to cover WP3 to WP4. If Bill were on identical pace, he could be expected in about 20min based on his WP3 clock.

I've got a tow strap, are there any restrictions on what kind of a competitor brings him in?

Something amiss....

Either:
- fuel problem (heard they were working on his bike late into the night)
or
- he helped one of the other guys having a problem

Dunno... just guessing based on what I've read on adv.

Let's hope for a repeat this year!! Scares me if Ned's past him, the two of them together could fix just about anything.

The ASO can check on a rider if they observe them stopped.

That would be difficult, they would basically be walking both bikes over the dunes. Tough on a 450 already taxed by the sand. Stranger things have happened though.

That's what I was thinking. Either Ned didn't see Jonah or the trouble is so bad that Jonah sent Ned on his way.

Isn't Jonah on FI? Could be much harder to fix... :total speculation

A lot pf premature reporting by the ASO in the past so I'm one for keeping the slow clap going for Jonah. Unless a rod flew out the side of the engine cases Jonah has shown that he'll tear down a bike and fix it in the dunes
