special n° 1 bike quad car truck
1st start

On the main page there are different times, so maybe this is correct?

Surely Cyril will be reseeded to position 1 or 2 tomorrow.

The frame is completly custom, last year welded by some guy in Latvia few weeks before loading in Le Havre if I remember correct. They struggled to get hold of a company who could do it on such short notice. Speedbrain use supply from all over the world and bike is very little stock parts. Swingarm was made in Italy. This year I lost a bit contact, I went to no race after Dakar, but I think the bike is more or less the same.

They run custome made wheels made by Haan, direct copy of KTM hubs.

Dust factor...

Lots of talk of the dust factor today.
After listening to Darryl Curtis's post on YT he mentioned it was raining lightly a little while ago.
Now that can change the game considerably....

Robby said that the dune that he crashed on was not marked in the road book....

How is it possible for them to mark everything in the road book when he veers off the race line so much? (granted it did look like a 90 degree dropp off dune).

Agreed.
And seeing as he was coming from behind, how come no one else crashed there....

He kinda brushed that one off. Not enough for a protest? Driver error?

Is anybody going to open up a thread for the withdrawals to add a story?

There may not be time now but after the theoretical 'pink lake" is reached it would probably be a great read. After all, part of the Dakar mystic is conquering the unconquerable. The stories from the back markers are more interesting.

Ya think he's changing his tune about those buggies? (seeing as Nassar is close to leader and he is tail end)

He does have the fastest car out there. Only if Nassar was driving?... Nothing...

Maybe just heading the question off at the pass?

What happened to Fretigne? More bad luck or overly aggressive?

Never mind. Facebook seems to be another good source.... "4eme etape: Abandon de David sur probleme mecanique !"
