Great photos, and great effort in the coverage. The image if 5 or six of you in a commentary box calling the play is conjured up in my head, just like a football match.

That spot seems to have caught out more than one pilot...

Marc Coma






Al ser la primera prueba con la moto nueva, nos ha servido para poder conocer un poco más sus reacciones en competición. Debemos de tener en cuenta que las condiciones en las que realizamos los entrenamientos y las condiciones en carrera no se parecen absolutamente en nada, así que, veremos cómo reacciona la moto a lo largo de los próximos días. En principio, parece que todo va según lo previsto. ...Ahora debemos centrarnos en buscar el límite de la moto y trabajar en el desarrollo de la misma. A lo largo de la etapa de hoy, bastante complicada y en la que la navegación ha sido muy importante, hemos realizado un buen trabajo y eso nos ha permitido disfrutar y tener buenas sensaciones encima de la KTM. Mañana, tenemos una etapa totalmente diferente en la que nos vamos a encontrar mucha piedra, un recorrido muy técnico y mucha exigencia física así que debemos estar muy concentrados.



Google Translate:
As the first test with the new bike has helped us to learn a little more their reactions in competition. We must bear in mind that the conditions in which we do workouts and race conditions do not look absolutely nothing, so we will see how the bike reacts over the next few days. In principle, it seems that everything goes as planned. Now we must focus on finding the limit of the bike and work on developing it. Throughout today's stage, quite complicated and in which navigation was very important, we have made a good job and this allowed us to enjoy and have a good feeling on the KTM. Tomorrow, we have a completely different stage in which we will find a lot of stone, a very technical and physically demanding so we must be very focused.

It's a pity we don't get Dakar tracking like this. Are you watching and listening

Stage 2 : From jbel to jbel

STAGE 2 : FROM JBEL TO JBEL
LIAISON : 49 KMS – SELECTIVE SECTOR : 240 KMS – LIAISON : 9 KMS
Change of setting for the second stage
. Participants will have technical tracks where the driver will have to be
the cleverest
. After a few kilometers, participants cross the first Jbel to access the Zguilma fort at the top of
the pass. On the way down
, you will find many parallel tracks. Copilots should beware! After CP1, it will be
well stall the Road book to find the passage to the second Jbel
. From the top of the Jebel, the view is
fabulous
! Participants will not have the time to enjoy it, but photographers can make sumptuous shooting.
Then a narrow and sinuous pass to go down
to the oued. Finally, the last section will consist of more rapid,

sinuous
and technical tracks, which allow pilots to express themselves.
----------------------------------

Looks like Barreda heads out at 7:45 AM followed by Coma 2 minutes later.

With the special being 240 km and more technical, an average of 78 kmh would put the total time at 3:04.

After yesterday's great effort you only have a 2 minute window to preserve your position - not sure if we have ever focused on average times, but certainly a good one - they do it in cycling all the time!

Oh shit.

I was doing the math on the average speed/time to see if I could guess when they would arrive at the finish. (There was no way I was staying up until 5 am and still make it to work ) You could also use it to determine the anticipated check point times if you knew those distances too.

Plus, I think it is neat to look at where they even out at. Sometimes the tracker lists 25 kmh and the fastest I saw yesterday (today) was Barreda at 145 kmh.

Thanks guys.

BTW Marc Coma's comments from day 1 (my translation from espanol, hopefully better than google translate they are...)

Although we have tested the new motorbikes, we need to see a little bit more how they react in competition. We need to bear in mind that there is absolutely no comparison between test conditions and race conditions, we will see how the bike performs over the long (endurance) term in the coming days. In principle, everything is going as planned....Now we will push the bike to its limit and work and develop it to stay there. Through today's stage it was very complicated and navigation was really important which we made good work of it which permitted us to enjoy it and get a sensation of the KTM's performance. tomorrow we have a stage that is totally different, we we are expecting a lot of rocks, a very physically demanding and technical stage that will require a lot of concentration.

If it is truly technical they won't hit an average of 78 kmh. If there are lots of hard tracks then maybe. Keep in mind Dune stages avg 60-64 kmh and that's for the fast guys.

+1

So we talking about 3.45 min to 4.00. That is a 15 minute window so we take the average and we are in the 3 hrs 52 min 5 sec

Tricky navigation will also play a big part at this stage...
I hope it's safe for everybody out there....
