Yah, that's why they slept in it overnight. Drove to the camp this morning. Smart decision I reckon.

The day of the motor swap rumors were rampant, one being that the motor Cyril received from Dabrowski/Orlen was a fresh motor, having been changed the day before.

Was that rumor ever confirmed?

"Rallye On!" Manuel, on a shoestring and a prayer.

If we all take a few minutes and try and think of any complaints that have truly been aired by the riders with respect to other riders and the ASO - there isn't much, even RG didn't day too much last year that was truly bitter, even after the $$$$$$ he spent.

Most of the complaining seems to be on here at time, not over there
Offcourse it is alot of complaining here as we are not atending the race and we are better that the guys in it...

Cyril

After the awarding of the 15 minute penalty for changing an engine, at the rest day Cyril Despres sees himself classified in 5th place 24’25 minutes behind the leader David Casteu with Cyril’s team mate Ruben Faria 2nd at 11’16. Chaleco Lopez is third at 12’00 while Olivier Pain is fourth at 16’10.

Cyril Despres

“They call in rest day but it should be called stress day! Since I got up this morning I’ve done non-stop interviews. I even did an interview as I was brushing my teeth! Now it is 14h00 and we have just received our road book for tomorrow, so time to shut ourselves away and prepare for the second week. So far we’ve done 2000 kilometres of special and we have 2300 kilometres left, so clearly there is still everything to play for. And as always on a Dakar it isn’t going to be straightforward.

I don’t have spies in all the other teams but radio bivouac informs me that the other riders have opted not to use the break to change their engines. It is a calculated risk that will for sure have an impact on all our strategies for the next week. Only time will tell if they have made the right choice or not but two things are for certain: one - it’s going to be a very interesting few days and two - I’m going to be fighting for victory all the way to Santiago."


interesting
