After all of that, I'll never forget Packmule calling me up on the first day of the 2008 rally as I was walking to my car for work and breaking the news that the whole thing was cancelled. Gutted.
I called you as soon as Robb called me. Here are those calls:






That was going to be THE YEAR; for Jonah, for RallyRAIDio, for this ADV coverage thing really taking off. :sigh


You are doing a marvelous job with RallyRaidReview, Doyle. Keep it going.

Miss too many WP's maybe?

Friends :) I'm still in the race!! I am awake for 36 hours :) but happy because manage to solve everything!!
Today I went fast and pass a lot of folks! tomorrow we are in argentina :) there's still a lot of Dakar!! Thanks for your support!

Huh?? Yeah Dakar site and Mischa site both show him finishing stage but I can't find him either on overall rankings, Not on withdrawl list either...dunno
So long as he is off the withdrawals list then he is still okay, he has a chance, albeit a small one.

I see the Mongolian Boldbaatar Damdinkhorloo looks like he might be out this stage as well

Long day today at work. I was not worried about keeping up with the firehose as I knew Preseason Thunder was taking place in Daytona. Anyone have the torrent files, IPad links for me? I want to see all the new driver uniforms.

The hose was flowing today.. I managed to get caught up finally. Looks like the leaders hung pretty close for the most part today. Pyndon sounded tired on his call. I was pleased to hear he got back in tune with his bike during the second special.

I love the pic if Manuel with his ADV care package.

The sad news this morning from the accident was on my mind today at work. I really feel for the families and friends of those lost in the accident.

Please, yes I would like F5 coffee mug when available.


Ooooo....... the FESH FESH eruption picture kicks major ass!

If so I guess we will see more side of the road servicing tomorrow...
I was forced to watch a movie with the missus - that put a quick end to things for a couple of hours. Fortunately I read fast. Then there is the plotting of tomrrows route. They have be crafty but I have found the route. All will be revealed soon.

Hrm. I do like that classic design.

We could always go with some art from RhodeHazard.

Bad like strikes again for Team Delta Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK, but Simon puts in a strong ride to salvage the stage.

Stage four was the first of the 2013 Dakar’s long stages with competitors racking up 700km of riding on the last stage in Peru. The technical and dusty stage claimed even more victims but once again Simon rode strongly.

Sadly Simon’s efforts were merely a salvage mission as the Australian had to ride hard to make up for losing almost two hours due to an unfortunate mechanical error that saw the bike cease to run after just 16km of the special stage.

Taking time to diagnose the potential problems and trying to contact the team for advice on the situation, Simon dropped an hour behind the last motorcycle on stage and was behind the lead cars when he diagnosed the issue of a fuel tap not being turned on.

Despite this setback Simon pushed on hard, passing more than 50 bikes to pull himself up to an impressive 126th place on the stage. On the most physical and technical special stage of the rally yet, Simon and his Husqvarna TE 449 SPR excelled and showed some of the potential of the bike.

Don Hatton has also continued on to help Simon as part of assistance crew. Don’s collision with a truck on stage three saw his bike damaged extremely badly and the incident started a downward spiral that saw Don forced to retire in the early hours of the morning.

Simon Pavey – “It was a shame that we had the mistake today, it’s an unfortunate thing and sometimes these things happen. Despite the setback though, I had a great day. I loved the riding today, it was technical, physical and I rode really well.

I felt so at home on the bike, everything was working perfectly. Once I caught up to the last bike, riders started coming thick and fast. The more difficult nature of the day suited me and I was riding fast without trying. It was definitely the most fun stage of the race so far. I managed to pass six riders on one of the difficult climbs and there was a really steep, fast downhill that was superb.

Then we had a big liaison section, it was 430 km of slow going. We’re limited to 100km/h and the road was coastal and slow. It grated a lot and we didn’t get into until late today. Tomorrow should be a fun special stage though, it’s bikes only and in previous years they have been the most fun stages.”

On stage five the rally will cross over to Chile, but not without the competitors racing their final stage in Peru, a shorter 136km stage, before heading toward the town of Arica.

The technical stage five provides a good result as the Delta Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK rider fights to put the previous stage behind him.


On paper the short stage five should have been one of the easier stages, but the technical riding, fesh fesh and rocks reveal it to be the toughest stage yet. Once again the stage claimed its victims as the bikes had their first ‘bike only’ stage of the rally.

Starting the stage behind 125 bikes and 30 quads, Simon pushed hard all day in the physical and dangerous riding to regain his position in the starting order. With technical nature of the riding requiring good line choice and careful navigation in the dust of the Fesh Fesh, Simon quickly found himself at home as he began to pass rider after rider.

Despite the stage being only 136km Simon’s clever and aggressive riding saw him pass around 50 vehicles and take an impressive 64th overall. Following the stage the riders headed south across the Chilean border on the spectacular Pan Americana.

Simon Pavey
“Wow today was hard! The stage was physical and technical. It was brutal really. Starting at the back of the field makes life so hard; the course is so bad by the time you get there the track is destroyed. The stage was dangerous today too. The fesh fesh was deep, littered with rocks and generally difficult to ride. We crossed a rock field that was 14km long and another gulley that had foot deep fesh fesh ruts.

I tried to ride smart today, even though I pushed on, I stayed out of the fesh fesh completely. Sometimes it cost me time but I’m not going to take the risk of pushing hard when I can’t see. There were so many boulders in the fesh fesh and it’s scary. Overall it was great fun though, the best riding is always technical and I had a really good day. It’s good to get back up the pack again as quickly as I have. The track really is much harder to ride at the back of the race.

It looks like the stage tomorrow will be difficult again. We have a really early start and a long stage ahead. Coupled with that loss of two hours sleep tonight, tomorrow is going to be really tiring.”

The caravan heads south from Arica to Calama tomorrow, with a painfully long stage of 769km for the competitors to enjoy. The stage is meant to be another difficult event, with even more of the dreaded fesh fesh.
