Now's the time to enforce the "eat faster" parental law. Don't speed (too much) getting back.

Thanks
Some of the TV France footage showed the sweeper trucks (and some civillian vehicles) engaged in recovery missions at several different crossings... at that point I think the "outside assistance rules" go out the "force majeur" window and it's recue by any and all means possible that becomes the rule of thumb.

memorable images of a unique day on the Dakar

I was taking care of my engine and conserving some energy on the stage because I knew towards the end there would be lots of navigation in the dunes. So the chance came for me to help out Ruben and pay something back for all he has done for me as a team-mate. For Ruben to be more sure of his second place in the overall timings I knew it would be helpful it I took things nice and easy at the front of the race.

Ruben was chasing Chaleco (Lopez) who was riding on my rear wheel so I thought I would take down my speed and let him pass. So Chaleco, Goncalves and Barreda all came past me and then it was up to them to navigate. I had a front row seat to watch them struggling to find the route in the dunes and all the while I knew Ruben must be making up time.

The Dakar is a race that you must respect until the very finish but it was satisfying to be able to exert some control on today’s stage. Today we were the bosses because we decided something and it worked.

All the bandana jokes aside, this is coolness.
Without the pressure to fight Coma every minute, every mile, Despres can really show what he knows about this sport.

He deserves that win like no one else.

Aye?

Lost in translation. It should be "I saw that I was gaining time"

It was not a difficult step and have always maintained a good level of concentration when it was necessary to navigate because WP did not want to miss any. I'm happy for the KTM / Red Bull held the same positions and the overall odds for a good outcome are higher but we can never forget that this is the Dakar and everything can change ... we must continue to believe. I want to thank my sponsors and my fans for supporting daily. A big hug! "

I think so. He's been tested this year and kept his cool and made the right decisions (not that we're quite finished yet).

Would seem so.

Imagine what a cluster the front runners would have if they didn't have Cyril to open the track this year. Each and every time he wasn't leading the pack, the pack got lost (well almost every time )
