And should the WC complain?

Yep! bound to be in the contract

That's also a long sleepless night in the marathon bivy with limited tools.

so his words go into cyberspace and allow his spirit to live on...

"I have no objective classification"
Only 25, but still 20 years of practice! On the starting line, Thomas Bourgin be the youngest driver French, but its trajectory since its inception in rally already imposes respect. Discovering the discipline of the Morocco Rally in 2009, the pilot Etienne immediately subscribed to the complexity of the exercise. Control both navigation and long-term efforts, while adopting an optimal pace: this is an equation with multiple unknowns like Thomas. In 2011, he joined the resistance as the pain in his range of qualities after two days on the Africa Race, he broke his pelvis but finished the race in fourth position! A few months later, the ambitious flirts with the elite of the Rally of Tunisia, which he finished in seventh position. He is now at his biggest test of maturity.

"The principle of the rally attracts me, and particularly the need to manage countless parameters. On each race, you get to know a little better. For the moment I got to know better, but I also experienced all types of seeds. Since the year 2011, I am better able to control the excitement. The Dakar worries me and I'm still a little anxious about missing something in my preparation, for example. But I'm going to learn, and realize my dream. I want to make whoopee in Santiago, I have no objective classification. "


RIP
Thomas Bourgin

Exactly, the WC sole focus is on helping his rider out. Not winning the race unless his rider goes out then IF the team has no other riders for him to support....of course lots of other situations could change this but that's the basis of the concept. BUT then again this year KTM have kind of been all over the place with their WC's....

If the gearbox is not sorted and given the 338 kms timed Special Stage tomorrow, Cyril will bury his victory chance tomorrow :popcorn and Ruben Faria will be KTM's best shot at it (or Lopez, if he is counted in). ...
I´m not sure, but i think that the 450RR has that k7 gear box type. (or is it the clutch?) If they can´t fix it, they just gonna switch it (poor Ruben...)...

You know, I feel like there used to be something like a 30' service window at the marathon bivouac, but I can't find any mention of it in the moto regs this year.


According to this, they are not subject to parc ferme tonight:

36P2 SPECIFICS
Machines will be subject to Parc Ferme rules:
a) On the Port of Le Havre, before loading the Vehicles and during the crossing;
b) After unloading the Vehicles in Lima, on the Port of Callao, up to 31st December 2012 and 1st January 2013;
c) On the administrative checks and scrutineering site in Lima, on coming out of
scrutineering on 2nd, 3rd and 4th January 2013;
d) On 19th January 2013 after La Serena-Santiago Stage in the Parque O’Higgins in Santiago;
e) After the podium, on 20th January 2013 in Santiago. The Parc Ferme will become a guarded park, up to Monday 21st
January 2013 at 08.00am, when it will have to be empty

I believe they only get 15 minutes on their bikes in the park ferme, until the start of tomorrow.


In other news, great to see Criag Bounds going through Wp5

If there is no park ferme at the end of this stage, then this is not a proper marathon stage. Sorry.

I feel a headache coming on.....
