Agreed, in the end we only _know_ a couple of things:
1) There's a picture showing CDP tearing into his bike and we can assume that he's about to switch engines with Dabrowski since...
2) there's an official statement from the KTM team manager saying that an engine swap is taking place.

If I were CDP I'd take that engine from Dabrowski and then put the hammer down. Depending on what the times look like at the rest day I'd possibly switch to another really fresh engine. But that's for later. =)
I think Cyril & the team will want to avoid a second engine due to the heavy 45 minutes penalty, it's just too much to lose for the pace of the race this year ...

As it's standing right now I agree. Will be really interesting to see the times after this days stage and what happens in the KTM team. =)

Can't wait for the Special to start
I believe the Orlen team have put out an official notice that Dabrowski swopped his engine with Cyrils.

What is it with all these conspiracy theories? So you have a photo of a dry cloudless, truck bivouac. Its 81.5 km as the crow fliews form the bike bivouac - I measured it. In the Andes at this time of you you get a lot of scattered thundershowers in the afternoons. They are more often than not very violent. Thats also why there was shitty helicopter footage yesterday - everyone was too scared to fly down the valley that Pavey talked about because of the high winds.
Bingo! I've been there. You can drive through the worst torrential rainstorm of your life, and 10 minutes later be in a different valley and boom! Sunny as you like.
All this bollocks about "fake rain" is bollocks.

As much as i agree if Cyril did change to this polski engine it will be a used engine with a bad need for a facelift.
He is risking DNF on the other hand.

Agreed. Doesnt seem like they'd cancel a stage for the trucks completely based on solely high humidity, or a certain french rider's engine troubles.

Exactly - he hasn't got any other option, really.
