just watched the robbie vid.
amongst all the other intersting stuff in it.
the big down hill was there.

that must of been the one Pual Smith GHR honda quad said he couldnt slow down enough on and plowed into the rocks.

the rocks on all other coverage looked like gibbers/normal boondies but in the RG vid, you can see thay they are large misshapen things spread aboud in the sand. odds are your going to hit a few on good day.
now put youself on a desert sled heavy with fuel tools and spares with poxy desert tyres, on the throttle a bit all the way to keep the front from knifing (and endoing like the other rider) all the time gaining speed for the G out/transition into the rocks at the bottom.
no need to also mention the fans with cameras and the chopper also running interference.

This stage looks like a winner.

WP4-5 should be interesting but 8 -ASS will be nasty.

Can't wait.

troy, you left out "Barrelling" Barreda Bort.... starting 20 minutes down from the leader... and i'm sure he'll be wanting to make up time. you would think without nav to worry too much about he could put in some decent times.

Don't know if it means anything, but Don Hatton is listed with a starting time for Stage 4 and is not listed in the withdrawals as yet.

Here's hoping!

It takes some time until riders are listed among the withdrawals.

Stage Three – Pisco to Nazca – 328 KM

Team Delta Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK suffers some bad luck in a difficult and dangerous stage three as the race makes it’s way toward the famous city of Nazca.


Stage three proved to be another difficult stage, with big dunes, soft sand and fesh fesh causing many of competitor’s problems over the stage. The seemingly short day of 280km proved to be deceivingly difficult.

Despite the nature of the stage, Simon had another steady day as he rode within himself to take 69th place on the stage. Uncomfortable with a lot of the terrain during the stage Simon elected to take the cautious approach as the stage was littered with hidden holes and steep dunes.

However, Canadian Don Hatton was involved in a freak incident. Working through the difficult sands of the stage Don was involved in an incident with a truck that saw some damage to his bike. The incident appeared to have damaged his gear selector, leaving him with difficulty changing gear. Don struggled on through the difficult riding attempting to nurse his bike to end of the special stage but the selector finally stopped choosing gear just 4km from the end of the special. Despite hours of trying to get out of the sand, his bike stuck in neutral, and attempting to convince the organisers to tow him the last part of the stage Don was forced to retire at 1:00 am local time.

Simon Pavey – “Today was tough again, some of the riding was technical, more so then we have had so far. I wasn’t comfortable to ride fast today at all, I really took my time. I stopped twice for a few minutes to fix a problem with my hydration pack as well and on Dakar stopping for just a few minutes costs you 20 places.

The terrain on the stage was treacherous again today, there were lots of hidden dangers out there and it was the type stage that could easily bite you. I was lucky to be relatively near the front of the race today too, there was a chunk of fesh fesh toward the end of the stage, but when I got there I was still able to pick a clean line and ride on the crust.

Once again my bike felt really good, I’m finding it strange to have a bike that’s so good for racing, it’s much more than I’ve had in rally’s before and because it wants to be raced it can be a little tiring. It’s a new style of Dakar that has developed over the last couple of years; it takes some adjusting to get used too. The rally still hasn’t really begun yet though, we’ve got eleven days left so we’ll just take each day as it comes.”

Stage four of the Dakar is the first long stage of the race, made up of a tough 288km special stage followed by a gruelling 429km liaison to reach the town of Arequipa.



Stage Three Results.

70. Simon Pavey – 03:26:11

Don Hatton – Retired

Overall Standings.

56. Simon Pavey – 07:29:56

Don Hatton – Retired

Are we talking fuel pump or fuel injector pump?

I know the original efi 450rs were terrible on injectors. Maybe the pgmfi is really playing up

Is true... but then again I left out all of the riders from re-start pos 11. to 30 on today's 4th stage... any one and ALL of who'm are capable of a flyer and top five stage results... this IS the MOST competitive and depth of talent DAKAR (possibly) there has ever been 8certainly in terms of sheer pace... if not experience).

Barreda starts today in pos. 23 (18th in general classification 20 minutes back - as you said). he goes off the line a half an hour after Chaleco takes the starters instruction... but with only fast traffic in front of him, he will have the bit between the teth for 288 km's.

but you can say the same of;

curtisSmithyTfagotterduclosJakespryzgonskiIsraelsv itko&Pizzolito as well.

Haven't had a chance to get my hands on the f5 firehose so I'm way behind.

In summary - is HRC fucked?

very true, but it would seem to me that barreda is the most likely to make a big move up the field today... he's shown he can fly when not getting lost or losing spokes...
