Now that is unfair. Bloody cow doesn't watch TV and can't figure out it's hitting one of the nicest.

In cars Al-Attiyah is bleeding time... Is it the terrain or mechanical?

Do you think that ktm watching the other brands and their efi issues will affect their new bike? If it's not broke, why change it sort of thing...

Bugger ...
That's a mechanical withdrawal for the cow I guess.


All my horses lead for a day and then falter.

Wow, poor Casteu. He deserves a break on one of these Dakars.

Ted would make a great anchor...if he did't float so damn much!

He sure rides like an anchor though...

So, 122kms of neutralization

hour and a half? Two hours with Refuelling stops?

I'm dying to see how this is going to play out today.

A real shame for David Casteu. So glad he is ok, but that shoulder surely won't be helping his times

Trucks are ASSing little by little.... By the pic Brodo posted later, and if the terrain stays as in that pic, I would say the bikes won't have any problems on the track caused by the big trucks, it looks like hard packed terrain...

Lopez + 10'40'' at neutralization

Quote:
Très discret pendant le déroulement de cette première partie de spéciale, Francisco Lopez a perdu 10'40". Olivier Pain ayant également été retardé, ce sont Ivan Jakes et Jeremias Israel Esquerre qui pourraient tirer profit de la situation.
