What is also clearly obvious when you actually put yourself in to the arena instead of commenting from behind a keyboard is how terrifying riding at speed is in the desert! I have the utmost respect for these guys and how they feed their families and if you were to witness them at full chat, 170kms over rocky ground then you may not be so quick to judge them when they are in their 'zone'.
A lot rests in their hands at the DSS, not least their life and livelyhood.

Well said.

Never knew anyone who had a pony but a couple of friends had horses. I never envied 'em having to shovel out the barn.

Is KTM maybe trying to sell the point that because it was their motor they built, that was in the race properly scutineered from the outset, that there should be no penalty for Despres? They got lawyers, I can see them trying this tactic, dependent upon how the rules are written, in the french version.

How's that for a conspiracy theory?
The time was actually added in at bout wp4 but didn't show up in penalty column, but his overall was affected by 15 min.

Nope. But seeing the final, produced from a few different countries gives you the same flavor: they're editing to make a product more interesting to their market.

Follow the money. Always.
