I hesitate to speculate on results, but I can say 100% for sure that it was a fine day of riding.

Some very fun sections including a stony pass that closely resembled green river. Felt so familiar and comfy that i kept laughing in my helmet that "we used to bullseye swamp rats back home..." nice to be 8000 miles away but feel at home.

I realized with 160kms left to go I might be able to make lunch at the hotel, so I was highly motivated to get in before 2. I made it with time to spare.

So racing for first place in the rally is secondary on the agenda. First being racing to get in before lunch is stopped being served

Whatever it takes, keep it up Ned

Never a good idea to get between a Suesse and our lunch...

Hope it was yummy.

They would like to see the compass arrow is pointing right to the finish but it,s not good idea to follow the arrow instead of the roadbook because the arrow only points the birdway if you have set it like that. But GPS is a good mark that you are heading right. The other thing is if you have to be rescued you can give them the position also so mark the place if you have to let the bike stay for the sweeptruck. Probably more things but can,t remember it now! :)

my bike

Hey the bike in the top picture is my 2011 Tuareg bike!!!
Brings back some good memorys

I had my gps in that position so the gps was in direct eye view as they use gps way points in the dunes so you follow the arrow to the next WP, next to the GPS unit is my compass repeater.

It would be neat to have some footage using one of these from the big dune finish at Iquique.
These little aircraft are ok in low wind situations. In an area like Iquique with cool ocean on one side, hot desert on the other, AND steeply rising terrain, that's a recipe for unstable air.
