Argentinian newspaper Clarin confirms the blocking of the assistance route by striking tobacco workers on the Marapa bridge in the town of Juan Bautista Alberdi.

They also have an article about Gilbert Escalé's heavy crash with a brutal photograph of him being pulled out of a ditch on a stretcher by Etienne Lavigne himself.

The Dakar always has a story to tell. For example, the of a Portuguese rider who nearly left out of competition for wanting to enjoy an Argentine steak.

The Portuguese Pedro Bianchi Prata smiles when he tells the story. "Prior to the fifth stage, I devoured at full speed one of those Argentine steaks as rich and, at the beginning I didn't realise, but suddenly I noticed that had been left me stuck a piece in the esophagus. I tried to drink water, but started to vomit and I felt horrifically wrong", he told the official website of the competition.

Given the urgency of the case, it was attended by the medical service of the bivouac in La Rioja. "They identified the problem immediately and I was transferred to the hospital, but upon arrival I wanted to operate with anesthesia, and that would have meant the abandonment, so I decided not to the operation." Medical cost you believe it, but he agreed to try it by other means,"he said.

The pilot said that the piece of meat was about forty inches from the entrance of the mouth and had to use 3 different types of surgical instruments and probes to be able to solve the problem.

"It took them 45 minutes.Now I laugh, but not memory have never felt a similar pain in the Dakar and I would not repeat for anything in the world." As all good pilot, Peter knows to learn from his mistakes. "Last night we went back to eating meat... and never in my life I've chewed so much food before swallowing!", stressed the Portuguese follows in career and that March currently ranked 17

The growing concern in recent times: it was no new Eric Palante since Thursday morning. At this time, he communicated on its website to be wounded in the hand and that "this very long day" promised "difficult with his first doubts about his ability to hold the handlebars." The message stated that the chain had jumped his motorcycle Wednesday and folded pinion, which forced him to be towed by a quad. But it "started a little fast projecting Eric floor. A nasty injury to the hand!"

Treated by the doctors, he teed off on Thursday but has not reached the finish of the fifth stage between Chilecito and San Miguel de Tucuman, Argentina.

Finally the sad confirmation fell in mid-afternoon. Eric Palante was 51 years old

I first met him on the 2003 Dakar when I was running the RallyRaid UK Team. He came to me with his blown Honda XR650. He told me it was his only Dakar and his wife had paid for it for his 40th birthday "it was his once in a lifetime chance to do the event, his only chance so please could I lend him the spare engine."

I lent him the spare and we even fit it for him and pleased to say he went on to finish.

I had to laugh, when the follow year I spotted him at scrutineering, he was there again !

and I just laughed and every year since.

Sad loss.[/QUOTE]

It seems like there are a few variables at play, maybe all have some level of connection to the number of abandonments?

1) Incredibly high level of competition- multiple factories with competitive bikes, and competitive riders, means more people pushing for the front. Not that it has ever been slow, but I imagine that in years where a single factory dominated, there might have been a bit more "gentleman's agreement" behavior- "let's ride this thing fast but safe, let the chips fall as they may, and sort it out at the end".

This year has none of that. A scorching pace at the front from the first meter of the first stage, means the people who want to have a chance are pushing harder and more consistently than they might have in years past.

Certainly, we have seen quite a few top riders out earlier than we might anticipate...

2) Manny mentioned "less qualified" amateurs. I have no idea how to categorize this, maybe there is credence, maybe not. Certainly every year has high attrition early on among a certain type of competitor- is that field of determined amateurs "deeper" this year as well, as Manny suggests?

3) And of course, more difficult course. This would account for more abandonments among pro and amateur alike. Certainly, there have been some very long days, certainly, there have been some features described as quite unique by many veterans. Further, perhaps weather has been hotter than usual, or the seasons leading up to the race led to more erosion/ roughness than usual... who knows?

Anyway, my own guess is that there is some of all three at play. But who knows, and I agree with Deadly- it must either evolve and move forward, or become irrelevant.

He expanded on his theory, saying that many of the weaker riders who were rejected in recent years have been accepted for 2014. Another issue was the extreme heat, especially yesterday, which he likened to the Hell of Fiambala of 2012.

Today's stage has already been modified and Manuel expects more modification to curb the extreme attrition rate he have now.
