Stage 3- track

Done some Google Earth stuff and created a track for stage 3 from the map. Some japanese/austrians must be doing the same thing right now :) This is nothing fancy like Hogwild or Bluebull's, but I believe it may be accurate enogh to have a good idea of the terrain. Have fun looking it in Google Earth and don't forget to see the Panoramio pics along the way.

The terrain is amazing - Lake Iriki (to the West of tomorrow's stage is where we must look for new speed records and Erg Chegaga will provide de dunes (once did a crossing there with an 1150 and it certainly left memories ).

When CP's kms will be known it'll be easy to place them. Download here

Helder had much better results when he built his own bikes and ran in a semi privateer team. I feel bad for him as his "factory dream ride" keeps leaving him on the side of the track.

No surprise to see the alien doing well

Awesome result for your young Sam

Same as me for the next 3 days other than after the fact in the evening, in addition to the comments on the HRC site Sam says that so far it's been mental, difficult navigation, total& continuous concentration and f****ng dangerous!

He feels that Southern European riders know the area well and may have an advantage - but that may not be the case over the next 2 days.

He is going to try and continue to ride safe and as conservative as possible - f**k knows what it would be like if he went for it

I also feel bad for helder...
Now I see the photo that I put earlier, earlier with helder on the side of the bike. I noticed a spare lever on the bottom of the tank near the exhaust brace. Then underneath that, there is something like a red tape? Sticker?

Any clues?

Just an easy place to put a spare. Tape stuff where you can, zip tie etc, extra chain link inside airbox etc etc.

Ps love the KTM nav tower.

Pps any idea of the Honda cost?

In sub 300 km's too...

The formula 450's are using every single one of the ponies they are producing... it would be interesting to see some throttle position data from the new crop of - say the top 5 competitors - modern 450's... as opposed to the the corresponding readings from the top five 690 pilots from say 2010 or so...

My gut feeling is that they are "on it" far more regularly with the 450's today, than they were on the last generation of big singles.

Había un montón de difícil navegación y tenía que marcar la ruta por adelantado. Al final he conseguido una buena posición de salida para mañana y ello es muy importante al tener que salir detrás de ellos. Mi moto ha funcionado increíble y los ajustes que los ingenieros van realizando en mi Honda CRF se notan día a día . ¡Felicitaciones a Paulo! "
