I have 6 Hondas so I'm not unbiased. But they need to change tack. They have fucked up. Consider their resources. Ginormous.

They still fuck up with alloy tanks that are too small.

The issues they have had are all not unsual. For them to happen to HRC though is abysmal planning.

30 staff and a small tank.

Morons who deserve tough love, not hand clapping for a pissant result.

Helder has wasted a year with HRC. It's a real shame.
No definitive feedback on what got damaged but it wasn't fuel.
I understand the comment, but it is still early days and a lot of aspects are still prototype whilst under development - expect to see them become more "stock" as the year goes on.

There are always 2 sides and don't forget this is a programme that all the riders bought into
As had been said, would it have been reasonable to move from clay model to Dakar winning manufacturer in 6 months - a tough ask

Why is the tank too small though, only Helder ran out of fuel once, or was it twice, nobody else did and even Pizzolito gave him fuel? Maybe Helder left himself short, after all it's not the first time.

France4 is on in just over 10 min. Looks like the feed from the original VLC list is working again.

Edit: although I have no audio.

So am I to assume that Verhoeven's tracker was off the whole day and his stage win stands?

Or should I just look at JC's ass and try to come up with a funny caption?

Frans Verhoeven has won the special, beating Ruben Faria by 1'38" and Joan Barreda by 3'01". Alain Duclos picks up a noteworthy fourth place, 3'17" behind the Dutchman. Four different constructors occupy the first four places: Yamaha, KTM, Huskvarna and Sherco. Fifth place has been taken by "Chaleco", 4'47" off the lead. Cyril Despres loses 9'15" to the day's winner and5 minutes to Faria and Chaleco in the general standings.
