Kevin Muggleton Update

From Kevin Muggleton from the hospital:

"Strange switching from 90 mph reading your roadbook to absolutely nothing. 16 Dakar competitors have come through the hospital, but a wise sage thought it best we didn't mix . So no bed races, have a feeling the garbage truck drivers might have won!.

Had a body brace fitted yesterday, if it works I might be able to fly in the next few days. Keen to get the op done in Denver so I can start the recovery. Heck at this stage I'll just be happy to sit up by myself.

Funny how your detail focus changes. I arrived in a pair of sweat ridden cycle shorts, which they cut off. Spent the day wondering what I'm going to wear going home ."

Caselli ?

Has anybody heard why Caselli has been dropped from the results ? He was shown as 20th in stage 5 and 19th overall. Now he's gone from the results.

Looks like Brodovitch wins this debate - Duncan Vos and Rob Howie forced to retire due to damaged roll cage. =(

From the little I sneaked in on my phone in endless meetings:

- Sneaky Cyril just shadowing, hoping to win this won through attrition? Or missing his play pen pal this year for motivation?

As you were, this thread is growing to epic proportions. Bring on Fr4!

PS - thanks for leaving the cliff notes out of date for 8 hours... bastards
It's hard to hire good help these days... obviously... Hey what?!

He does not say, but Cyril Despres almost regret Marc Coma is not on this Dakar. With his alter ego Spanish KTM, it was an intense fight but with a certain respect.

His face is stained fatigue and anger. Sitting on the edge of his camper in the camp of Arequipa, Cyril Despres did not start to feel old but a gap between the biker of 38 years and his young rival. Designated as favorite single Package Dakar 2013 after his teammate and rival Marc Coma, the French assume only the weight of the race and regrets that other drivers regularly leave him in charge of opening the road to better counter in the last kilometers. "I may be old school but before, when a pilot was opening the track, he was given the victory, he says. Here, when the green arrow is illuminated on the GPS and someone sees the arrival of doubling it cuts both ways limit. '

Elimination race
Despres is annoyed but there is obviously no solution to encourage the best of the pack to guide the flock. "Apart Chaleco who tried, nobody starts. Some do not feel confident enough in navigation. Every time it's the same scenario. They go to five or six and then they have waited for me to do the trace." Faced with the impossibility of creating gaps in the off road tracks, Despres hopes to make a difference in the more technical parts of the rally in Argentina. "I'm not worried, he assures. I feel good physically and now I'm managing. I do not run 100% of my ability." An excellent tactical for an elimination race. But they are still likely to be in the game ...
So far Despres seem to be the one everyone else waits for when the going gets a bit "where do we go..."

So far CDP's tactic in reply to this is to (consistently) finish in the top five... but not win a stage (because then he becomes the"bunny"... like PackMule was referring to earlier in the thread... and loses out on the two minute gap/staged starts.

This way he never "wins" a stage... but he never loses (big slabs) of time to pursuers on the following day either.

It must be a bit frustrating to be the only wayfinder in the field (though to their credit Pain did the role today... and to some extent Casteau can/has shown he can lead out in the past). But one can't help but think if CDP retired tomorrow, the rest of the pack would go; "F5¤%... who do we follow now...?"

Perhaps a little harder on the track roads of Chile, but it is what it is.
Two words...

marathon Stage...

Set em' up on the first part...

and dissappear like houdini...

Interesting, I had not seen that until this blurb... I am wondering how many riders are trying to save their engines, seems like a lot of engine changes after only 4 real stages...

LOVE your compilations. Fully stolen them both to put on my page via Storify. Any other credit I should include?

Funny coincidence... when i was talking to Jordi last summer, and he said, "I like Leia's gold tips..."

I thought she'd had her hair done...?

Apparently that Spanish lispth of Jordi's threw me once again...

Hi guys.

You were busy today...

Cought up with the reading. Today there´s no Eurosport coverage over here, so trying to watch some on VLC.

Today´s stage is clearly a proof of how the Dakar has changed.

I still think that in a race like this, and with the size of the open field at the disposal, the SS should never be shorter than the liaison.

See you tomorrow.

All the "fast in a flash" guys are behind him now, all with him riding well within his comfort level. I think his nearest concern behind him is Chaleco, 7'30 in arrears already.

Pain and Casteu both seem pretty smooth at this point, but my guess is that Cyril feels he can haul them in at will if he elects to push. Let's hope David's luck holds, as it certainly has not over the years.
