An engine change for Chelco has been mentioned a couple times, is it confirmed or speculation?

She's looking forward to a good night's sleep, you have been Dakar focused for two weeks and then tomorrow night you will notice for the first time since Jan 5th she exists

Let us all know the reaction apart from saying she is second choice to the Dakar, that is after your fingers are working again

A new thread?

THANK YOU to the folks who PM'd me info during the stage today. You were lifesavers! Emails would pop in whenever I hit service. And thanks (AGAIN) to Mischa who sorted me out on the proper link for the full field on mobile web.

You guys rock.


As a reward, I have today's call from Lyndon. Thank whomever's wifi I'm jacking at the moment.

Lyndon's Stage 13 Call

An upbeat Lyndon calls in on the Penultimate day of the rally. After his miraculous (and rally-saving) mechanical repair yesterday, he started well down the field today and had to contend with a lot of dust, passing 40 bikes and quads through the course of the stage. One day to go, and Lyndon knows it's not over until the finishers medal (which is satisfyingly heavy, as Ned Suesse informed us last year) is in his hand. Keep it steady, Lyndon, and thanks for the ride!

Can't tell from the penalties whether he has changed his engine - if not then why not?
It wasn't going to affect his overall but could have got him more stages?

Pyn sounds in good spirits, but it is just me or did he sound like he'd had enough riding?

looks like a swap

Looking at the tracker, I notice a couple of things.

There are at least two riders not in yet, Croquelois & Botturi. Iirc, Botturi had an issue and is out of the edition.

There are a few others with missed waypoints, but are in the ASS, Bianchi & Bianchi Prata, Smith, De Groot, Martinez. I have not been following these riders, just noticing the gaps.

Tracker issues or fast-tracking to the bivouac?

If this crummy internet connection in Copiapo allows, I'll post a photo of Pyndon. I'll be riding northbound now and will be back to the US in a couple months.
Nice!!

Please upload your other pics!
