So, first of all, rider who I work for is out (Jan Vesely), his Yamaha WR450F finished with broken coil some days ago, 30km before end of the very long stage at dunes. They tried to tow his bike behind truck, what finished with bike quite totally destroyed as they did not recognised, he is already on ground and bike was doing flops for about 500m. Jan though he will repair the bike and missed chance to be towed to the end of special behind some quad for example. Race truck was last ore sweeper, so he had no other options.. Now is out.\
Great to hear from you Thomas. Sorry about your friend we talked about it when he went out.

HRC & Husqvarna need to look to new upcoming riders (Barreda is a bloody good start) and sort out their own team before poaching other, tested individuals. One of the reasons I am livid about hearing of Helder's expulsion to make way for Le Patron, is not only for Helder, but because I don't think you can just buy a winning team. You have to create it from the ground up.
Brodo, don't forget that there is yet to be any substance in this rumour, it is not even a rumour within HRC as far as I know.

I don't believe they have bought a winning team either - look at their team - they have Helder as their number 1 - you have to one and his acquisition was little more than any new contract offer, after all they were forming a new team and bike - what were they supposed to do, they had to get someone with the right credentials - if not you cam imagine the slating they would get on here

After that they have an up and coming 23 year old, who has yet, but will, be right up there - a more than astute decision that goes back 18 months or more and that was initiated originally by Roger Harvey personally.

A Honda icon in JC - who is fully associated and aligned with Honda in his own Honda racing team etc. and I would guess has been paid little directly, plus they have 2 South American reps who have equally probably not be bought for big bucks.

Just for now Honda should be nothing short of praised for what they have done and achieved in the last 6 months, from squat to today - long may it continue

From my friend Carlo's FB:
Day 9 connection 175km > Special Stage 593km
Position 1 C. Depres 5h,41min,36sec
Position 73 M. Lucchese 6h,54min,55sec
Variation 1h,13min,19sec
Final Standing 83rd

The boy made it to the end of this long stage! I receive a personal note from M. Lucchese, and he's worry for the bike and the Fiambala stage. The bike has some problem accelerating engine RPM, and it could be a problem on the sand stage of Fiambala.
Tomorrow is a relatively short day and it's all going to be on a rocky soil, where Manuel should not have any problem. I want to remind everyone that he's a 1 man team and last year at this point he DNF, so we're already doing a progress!!!
Let's hope for the help of some mechanic!!
GO Man!!

There should be some more interesting twists coming over the next few days. The champs find away to avoid those situations... luck or skill.
There was one last year as well, - so it's Roos in Ox, Camels in Africa and Cows in Argentina - was it dairy or beef, may not have been a cow

Long day at work. Just over 50 pages to catch up on this evening. CDP was on the move for sure, any update on motor? If this was true someone would have caught this by now I would assume.

Looks like another very smart ride today for Pyndon.

I have a much better understanding of snooker.

It's a pretty multinational total offering, but Honda Japan are most things to do with the bike, the mechanicals and it's development.

Not the Wevers fireball, but a Wevers crash from earlier today.

Me too.

The engine of CdP.... now thats the rub.

Me thinks the rumor came from PAL and that might have just been old news again from the marathon stage. He mentioned nothing about an engine after the SS, and Im sure he would have said something - at least that his ride today was not flawless -if there had been an engine problem.

Of course they may have picked up a problem at the bivouac, but I personally doubt he will need a new engine so soon.

We will find out tomorrow I guess.
