News on the live feed are always marked with "cars", "bikes" "quads" or "trucks", unless the news apply to all classes.

The "red flag" news is unmarked.


Fuckers.

If they keep the results at CP2, Pain still leads the overall, and a lot of riders get diddly squat for their efforts.

Joke.

That blows. Keep the stage! Chaos is chaos, and should be reveled in.

They don't say if that's for the cars only or for the bikes too.
That's bullshit if it's for the bikes, 124 out of 121 of whom are in already.


In the car race, that's going to erase Nasser's issues and give him another stage win (along with the implications for the overall).

Here's how the bikes looked at CP2:

Below is the route. Be warned it looks like a very rough track. You can convert this file to a GPS file and follow it easily enough.



Hope its helpful


Just as a note, that plain may not be passable with the rain. Even worse if it's a Salta.

There are still bikes out on the stage, so I imagine it will be for both...

It is f**king bullsh!t to be honest... this is the day before rest-day, it is only mid afternoon there - there is plenty of time for everyone to get in... the only possible reason for stopping the stage is if there is a chance of flash flooding or landslides on the route...

Jeeeeeez, I thought this was an off-road race? - that means a race against the elements too you know!

Gaaaaaah!

And the most surprising thing about this decision is it effectively erases any advantages Le Patron gained today. Must be a world record first for the ASO

I hope they do not erase the stage for the bikes.

That would suck considering 99% have finished today.
