No actually. We just get the standard "26 Minutes of Dakar" show, narrated by Ben C. Nothing Oz specific at all. Really disappointing given how many Aussies took part this year.

Heres my quick theory on Hondas gas problem... Honda did not test enough in the dunes nor at such a frantic race pace as the dakar before the accidents out in ridgecrest. I dont think they tested at all out at Dumont or Glamis.... Anyway they found the equation a friend and I came up with. we simply call it the Hawthorne effect. Just before we raced the North Nevada rally with our LC4s with 18 ltr tanks we were getting an easy 200-220 miles of range at a good race pace. But once we reached Hawthorne and the super sandy roads we didnt expect the crazy amount of rear wheel spin even. Our mileage dropped to about 150 and we ran out of gas on the stage before the mid day service .. both of us were lucky enough to be just up hill from a check point that had a guy with some gas... Anyway they got caught out ... never pass gas and a motorcycle never has enough of it unless its on fire..

BTW... tally keepers some of us finished the F5 rally with under 100 posts but they were strong ones !

If it is indeed the case, that Ruben's deficit to Cyril is less than the time he spent waiting for Cyril, he therefore would have won, and in my opinion deserves to win. If I was in Cyril's shoes I would not feel my 'win' was deserved. Something sits a little uneasy with me - if Cyril had won through Ruben's help, but Ruben had finished down the order, I'd be OK with that; but having Ruben effectively give up his win for Cyril I don't think is very sporting at all. Team orders or not, I think in that situation I may have pulled over just before the ASS and given Ruben back his minutes.
