Nasser & Sainz have had issues, so look for Gordon to jump up the leader board at the KM100 update


Or look for him to be real stuck just past km 75

A Question for you experts: TEAM RULES: Can they make Predrero Garcia water carrier for Despres instead of Faria?
Interesting.

They can do whatever they want in the team, I think the question is one for marketing. They've invested a lot in Despres brand.

Amazing thing for me is that this woman is better known for her ability on the trials bike (multiple world champion).

She should do King of The Motos

He must. He's a professional rider, and that's his job... sad though. Kinda wished he went rogue on this one and gave CD "zee fingerr" with compliments from Gonçalves

Saying tha the stage had much sand but very fast.
Was lost at km 40 but then catches Despres and rode to the finish together.
Bike low on fuel after the finish.

Chaleco Lopez said in the interview that the bike was fine, but that starting first isn't worth it (no vale la pena).

Apparently, this was a difficult navigation stage.

Lets hope there's more to the story...

The sand stages are, because there aren't defined roads to follow and turn onto. Also, there's a lot of room for interpretation, over or around?

Great result for Pyn, steady and safe and fast enough.

Quote of Joan Barreda: "I got lost at the beginning of the stage. But I wasn't the only one who needed some time to find his bearings. I quickly got back on track and everything went smoothly from then on. It was a great day at the office."

Quote of Matt Fish: "This result isn't really a surprise because our team does its best so we can pull out all the stops, as I did today. We went flat out from the start and it's already paid dividends! I hope we can keep it up."

Confirmed with Mrs. Muggleton that he is out, sore, but OK and that all that mattered is that he came home safe.

So glad he's safe, but he must be crushed that he's leaving now.
