edit: no, just wishfull thinking, pedrero started the special 13 minutes after Cyril... but he must be only 2 minutes behind him!

Hummm, overall, at WP1 Rodrigues is 14 minutes ahead of Casteu/Gonçalves, and 16+ min ahead of the Bordone Ferrari's. But we just seen how easy it is to loose 12 minutes and Despres wasn't even opening the track! C'est le Dakar! Drama!!!!

Laia could be in that picture to show even better how shorter PG is.

Now seriously, besides Spain, I think no nation can claim an advantage over others. The Spanish, yes, they're dominating competition motorcycling, and that is probably due to a serious national investment. Hat's off to them.

So, no nationalism here either.

He fixed it within minutes

Can you tell if WP2 = CP2?

WP2 registering, CP2 (which is usually faster) has no one yet....

According to Dakar.com:


Now that the first 20 riders have gone through CP1, we have a clearer picture of the hierarchy in the eighth
stage of the 2012 Dakar. Although Marc Coma is still in the lead, he now has Frenchman Olivier Pain right
behind him, just 38" back, with Italian Alessandro Botturi a further 18" back. Juan Pedrero lies 1'23" back
in fourth, just ahead of Ruben Faria, 1'36" behind Coma. This never-seen-before classification and the
ever-diminishing differences with the leader are probably the result of improving conditions at the muddy area
between km 8 and km 12 of today's special.
