Conspiracy Theory
Could it be that Orlen team were the backup plan for KTM all along for cases of Cyril catastrophe during stages?

All this bollocks about "fake rain" is bollocks.

yeah that's the only thing I've got. Nothing from Factory KTM though. Plus, no press & media in the gymnasium (I mean you are a journalist, this happens, and you don't scramble a team to the gymnasium? I don't get it)

I'm just not convinced all the events have come to surface yet

Sorry guys, no map today...the routes change too much between bikes and cars, I'd need another 12 hours at least to sort it out.

But there is a statement from KTM:
"Speaking to MCN, KTM team manager Alex Doringer said: “Cyril has started work on the engine change already. It wasn’t a pre-agreed with the team, but Marek has not been able to ride like we know he can so it was just a case of making a phone call.”"

These KTM engines when rebuilding them I know it would be nice to re-bearing the bottom end but is that really necessary?
The top end if free no penalty as long as you don't split the cases, so maybe if he did switch, refresh top end on off day see if it's strong enough then think about new engine if not up to song...my thinking anyway

"not been able to ride like we know he can"?

wonder why? but that would mean his engine probably has some life left in it

There's been talk about Dabrowski having problems with one of his shoulders.

He's carrying a shoulder injury I think.

EDIT: Yes, confirmed here: http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2013/fr/pilote/047.html

Quiet in here today, the F5irehose operators are a little weary me thinks.

Troy has yet to come from yesterdays stage - maybe he has dropped out?
