These riders are what the Dakar is all about, IMHO.

He still has a 200km liason to do before he hits the biv tonight.

And it's 2230 there already.

Ain't gonna be all that much sleep.

drama, shuffles and all...
this dakar has been anything but disappointing or predictable

The fat lady will sing tomorrow and I hope that everyone will be ready to join in the chorus
but Santiago is still a bit of a ways south...and lets make it there first

Would love to know what the issue with Kurt was today

Luis Manny Pyndon Patrick

oh and
team F5 for making this the best dakar thread yet
Thank you all

At same time it's funny, because in the speedbrain report they say:

Joan Barreda similarly put in a fine performance, setting off from third position. The rider took command of the main group, dominating the entire stage in first place as well as doing an excellent error-free navigation job for the whole 400 km of the special. He marked up the fifth best time in todays section against the clock.

Joan Barreda: I had a ball navigating today. I was out there on my own practically the whole way once Id got past Faria and Verhoeven a few kilometres into the race. Im really happy.


But IIRC he was with faria and verhoeven when they all lost a lot of minutes looking for a waypoint...,
I mean do they think we can't see this?

(even with aso crap tracking)

Caselli

Motorcycle USA says this:

"Kurt Caselli was in position to place high in Stage 13 until engine trouble stalled him just before the finish."

Strange though - Faria also stated that he saw JBgow wrong with nav and then JB said -

Joan Barreda: I had a ball navigating today. I was out there on my own practically the whole way once Id got past Faria and Verhoeven a few kilometres into the race. Im really happy.

Sounds very much like a few porky's knocking around - porkygate

That's what I was thinking too. And a long haul down Route 5 in the dark on a 2 smoker is worrying. Probably just as well he's not mechanically minded

Only joking. He'll know how to nurse it.
