Do you need a flat dirt road for the tow or are you looking for the nearest main highway?

There's a track that seems to lead NE from Ruta 40 at
27 1'52.27"S 6629'41.69"W

Would that make sense?

He certainly does, this is Dashmoto at the 2012 Ryedale Rally in Yorkshire but that's Pyndon's 450RR behind (before it went blue).

Another bad news today... JCO, the legend Jean-Claude Olivier (ex-boss of Yamaha France) passed away this morning in an car accident in France. RIP JCO, you still with us and you can be proud of what you did in your life for all the riders.

I am ready for his call tonight. What a great ride after the challenges of yesterday. I hope they do not move him back, but steady seems to be what keeps these guys moving up no matter where they start.

Red flag...

As a meteorological Armageddon falls upon the last thirty kilometres of today's special, the race direction has decided to stop the competition and neutralise competitors at CP2, 86 km into the stage (formerly 374 km, but the course was changed this morning).

They don't say if that's for the cars only or for the bikes too.
