The rookie in second, but barely.

Will he have the staying power?

I doubt it.

The whole F5 bivouac has to be wondering: Is Blueballs gonna step up? Looking at first to be the one to beat, he has failed to meet his potential. I said it before boy, you need to check your dosage, it's affecting your game...
Its the dosage bru..theyre weaning me off it and now Im falling asleep at critical times...time to dig deep and pull though. Doubt I will be able to beat Brodovitch, he is posting at warp speeds. Last year he was just nothing like this!! PM is another alien, who like Depres is just mooching along with the field.

I think the stories of the guys just trying to make are much more inspiring then the million dollar teams just rolling along, got guys down there with no mousses bad engines parts falling off, but they are determined to do whatever they can to finish what they started!! My hats off to them I hope they can all accomplish there dreams, If not this year Dakar will still be there next year....

Exhausted, I keep hearing that over and over. Watching him trying to lift his bike in the sand, man you have to feel for these guys.

Unlike previous years, the Mule has to go to work, that's really showing in his performance. I don't see him stepping up at all.

Brodo is a hobbit. Week 2 will be over his head. No evidence yet that he has the endurance.

Who knows, maybe the rook has it in him.

Well the rookie had a good ride, but I feel like I'm not bringing much to the table...I have no photo posting skills, I don't know a Despres from a Quintanilla. Hell it took me 2 stages to figure out who Helder is, still don't know who Chavo is?? I did read the rule book, So all I can add Is random blather,,,,

For me, Dakar is best understood as a survival event first, and a competition second. The changes that Bluebull very rightly points out, mean that while it is billed this way, it is becoming less the reality. I am glad, however, that they still allow overmatched riders to compete, because people like Toby remind us that incredible odds are no reason to quit, no reason to not go the next foot and the next one after that.

A vicious circle

We already met him at scrutineering and he already stood out thanks to his hardened adventurer's appearance. Unfortunately, things did become harder for him on the special stage between Pisco and Nazca, which Australian Andrew Scott completed in 13:07'38, i.e. an average speed of scarcely 19 kmph. “I rode a good part of the special with Donald Hatton, but when we got to the last chain of dunes, we decided to wait until the trucks had gone through before carrying on. So we stopped and then set off again afterwards. The problem was that during the night, it was hellish trying to get through there… so my riding companion decided to stop to sleep, but I wanted to carry on, because stopping would lead us into a vicious circle. In fact, it's so much easier, but in the heat of the moment, you start doubting your ability to continue the race and then you've lost it! Before coming here, a friend told me, you should never despair, never give up. If you decide to do the Dakar, it's because every day you want to test yourself against your limits rather than against the desert. And I can tell you, I thought about what he said a lot today…” Whilst Donald Hutton won't be finishing the race, this tough mentality saved Andrew… The same will probably again be true between Nazca and Arequipa, a special stage he started in last but one position…
