Nice for the competition. Despres and Coma will be almost equal.

Damn, Portugal.
You sure like cheering other people's misfortunes.

This nationalism in Dakar followers saddens me.

If those guys are loosing that much time in the muddy section - it's going to be carnage in the rest of the pack.
I feel for the guys at the back!

It would be funny if indeed he would have lost exactly the leading advantage he had. Dakar.com sometimes has this "hot off the press" sensationalist approach, We'll have to wait for WP1. 65 kms away from DSS, we're now 42 minutes into it... the stage profil shows soil-stones all day today (if that isn't a vague description, what is? )

Any bets on when we'll get WP1 times?
