Cyril remains the man to beat, even on a Yammie. Feeling sorry for all the CD haters out there

The man is good and love or hate, he does the job.

I am glad to see the mix of hardware now. Becomes a manufacturer race also.

also remember from the 2011 Australian Safari, Cyril is not a fan of flat on the tank balls out high speed stages

I thought that particular instance had a little to do with not liking to ride the fence line at those speeds, you would know better than I. 100km seems a long distance to keep the throttle rolled back wide open comfortably. Maybe he is not willing to further reduce his risk margin (chance of injury) in the Sertoes.

Rally dos Sertoes – Stage 7

A difficult day for the two Team Yamaha Racing /Yamalube riders, with both losing time and places on the 7th stage that looped around Palmas. Fastest over the stage was Marc Coma with Paulo Goncalves second and Dario third. Yesterday’s leader Cyril Despres finally made it to the end of the stage in 6th place with team mate Mickael Metge finishing 14th. Overall Goncalves takes the lead with Cyril now second at 17’08, Coma third at 32’33 and Mickael back in 8th at 1h42’40.

Cyril Despres

“If yesterday consisted of everything I love about rally-raid; opening the piste, navigating, tyre and bike management…well let’s just say that today the less positive aspects of the sport came to the fore. Just after the 300 kilometre mark I was opening the piste and crossed a wooden bridge that was marked on the road book. What wasn’t marked on the road book was the wire gate fence blocking the exit. I hit it at about 40 kph and down I went hard. In a way I suppose I was lucky. The highest wire caught my visor – it could have been a lot worse – but I lost a lot of time untangling the bike from all the wire and straightening out the bike as best as I could. And of course after such a ‘misadventure’ it was very difficult to find my rhythm again. At the time I had pulled out a lead of maybe 3 minutes on Paulo and in the end I finished over 22 minutes behind him. Obviously that’s had a huge impact on the overall result and this evening I’m feeling pretty bruised and battered.”

Mickael Metge

“Everything was going really well until I stopped at the first refuelling point, after which I just couldn’t get the bike started again. I kicked it over the so many times I actually split the sole of my boot! In the end I got a local with a moped to push me and got it started that way. Needless to say the whole episode cost me a load of time and places…”

CD just posted on FB, opened the stage and cleared the others by at least 3minutes. Came across a bridge that had a none marled wire fence on the far side. Caused him to crash after which he lost 22min during the day as he was a little spooked and couldn't get a rythem back.

Nothing wrong with the top speed, just the rider...

Metge lost time as he couldn't get the bike started..

Today we'll see if the organizers credit him an amount of time the closed gate. Thankful that the wire wasn't lower or it could have been real bad. Good to see that he's okay and the Yamaha seems to be performing well.

I think that the net result would possibly be referred to as wire-gate... ?

Seems Cyril Defect was in a real bind there for a bit? I wonder if the good folk on the jury will give our bound 'n gagged champion of the people a refund on his aggregate time... I mean clearly the offending fence was not marked in the roadbook... much the same as a muddy landslide would be...nes pas? And clearly this afforded Marc and Gonk an unfair advantage, when they arrived on the scene to find the mesh enshrouded Cyril trussed up like a thanksgiving turkey on the far side of the bridge...

It can even happen in the t d'f... just get the wire cutters out before the peleton passes you by...
