HRC water carriers....a bit far back to be effective...just saying...
This has got to hurt for Team Orange! To see Red on the podium on the first event (and as a run-up to the Dakar) will really make the Big One interesting to say the least!

I'll do my best when in Peru to get you guys as much info as possible! Neil is there now and I'll be in-country Dec 26th!

Coma update:

"Failed to meet one third of the 291 competitive kilometers of the third stage of Rally Morocco, I had to take from Erfoud to Zagora. Marc Coma (KTM) suffered a fall that left him out of the race. It was a camel grass area, complicated driving, where he finished on the floor, landing on his right shoulder. Behind him came Hélder Rodrigues (Honda) and Joan Barreda (Husqvarna), who have stood to activate the beacon, requiring medical intervention for the injured. Once evacuated care center, doctors have diagnosed a dislocated right shoulder. The pilot will be repatriated soon to Barcelona, where he will undergo different tests to accurately assess the extent of the injury and start, as far as possible recovery. Eat The intention is to be able to be ready to compete in the Dakar Rally 2013, which will leave Lima (Peru) on January 6. At the time of the fall, Coma occupied the second position of the rally, after the race leader, Frenchman Cyril Despres (KTM), which circulated ahead of the Spaniard."

From here (in spanish)

It looks like the Aliens are really pushing.
From what I remember from previous Dakars, Speedy isn't all that good at keeping the lead while having to navigate, so I guess having him in front won't help Helder all that much, probably KTM will knock some sense on Cryl so he won't risk an injury so close to the Dakar (really hope Marc is ok), though he'l probably be flying tomorrow and cutting a few minutes on HR lead.

I'm a little disappointed with JC so far behind pace, hope e picks up the rhythm until January.

Really proud of being Portuguese right now

Hmmm... Doesn't sound right.
Let's wait for the first hand information about the injury.

Agreed, JC is not being paid to risk as much as the frontrunners.

In any case, a water-carrier's role has shifted from helping his #1 rider possibly win the stage by handing stuff over, to just ensuring he finishes it to continue the next day, especially now that specials are being decided in matters of minutes between the 3 aliens

This sets up and interesting alien contrast between Cyril and Marc. Coma seems a little more prone to accidents (I wouldn't call them mistakes) whereas Cyril is as reliable as they come. Rodrigues has that consistency as well.

A little diddy I wrote about the contrast back during Dakar.

I know JC and Pizzolito are on the older bikes, but I wonder how many (if any) development parts they are running for testing purposes.

He got the four minute penalty for missing his allotted start time due to mechanical problems yesterday but seems to be all good and flying again today
