Looking at the CP1 times, I guess just about everyone else has managed to avoid the muddy bit!

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.

Only serious investment Portugal did in sports was building a dozen megalomanous football (soccer) stadiums in 2004 (most of them are now rotting away). So..... Go Helder, Go Paulo, Go Ruben!!!

Helder gave only 20 seconds to Coma on this section. Let's see how the rest of the fast pack goes.

Nah, I reckon Etienne deployed the tractor beams on the ASO mothership and held him there for ten minutes just to liven things up.
