On a side note: Apple SUCKS! The cheap bastards keep falling in quality to match the masses. So sad... and the only man that cared is dead so the slide will probably only accelerate. 2 year old Apple has been crashing every other frickin' day!

Back Dakar:

Fiambala! Whomever makes it through should make it to the end. Thing is... there are probably a lot of people just hanging on by the skin of their teeth.

I bet we can make a list of guys on the edge either by bike or by physical wear and tear. Dakar is special because it demands a lot from man and machine.

The bike category has to have Luis in though he is an old school mechanic with magical skills. Old school meaning what you need can be found on the side of the road. Don't know who else's steed is worse for wear. Brands can be one factor: Husqvarna, Husaberg, Gas Gas, or... Honda. KTM's can obviously grenade but parts are everywhere and the problems tend to be well known.

I don't know whose body is worse for wear besides Casteau after losing the battle with the bovine. Someone had their aching back and neck massaged to melt the discomfort and I'm sure their is another fifty I haven't heard about.

I can see R. Gordon gloating form here


CORDOBA, Argentina: Nasser Al-Attiyah has pulled out of this year’s Dakar Rally due to mechanical failure, dashing his dreams of another title in the celebrated race, his team announced yesterday.
Al Attiyah, 42, and his co-driver Lucas Cruz had been pushing for the overall lead of the race until repeated break-downs on the 851km stage nine between Tucuman and Cordoba in Argentina forced them to abandon. A broken water pump was to blame.
At the start of the ninth stage, Al Attiyah was second in the overall classification for cars, just over three minutes behind Frenchman Stephane Peterhansel, who is pushing for his 11th Dakar Rally win.
The Qatari driver, who won the race in 2011 and was second in 2010, was taking part in a buggy developed over the last five months by Red Bull Motorsport.
The Red Bull Rally Team’s other buggy, driven by Spain’s Carlos Sainz, was withdrawn on the sixth stage, also because of mechanical problems.AFP
