So, 3rd time luck in Dakar 2015 then!
I will be aiming to use a purpose built Rally bike this time round (sorry donkey) and also looking for the correct individuals to build a support team. God knows how I'm going to do it at this moment, but I've got this far so anythings possable! Thanks again for all the support, it means so much to me. I know I can do it, so watch this space! :-))

And disorganised: “It's 9.30 PM and I haven't even finished taking notes for the road book. What's more, I still have work to do on my bike. Also, even on the route, I was having difficulty concentrating”. The secure enclosure is adjacent to the barracks where the base camp of the Dakar has set up in Uyuni. There are hundreds of spectators behind the fences watching the riders change wheels, drain oil or change filters. Some of them, impatient to see their hero, shout “Chavo! Chavo!” from time to time. He doesn't yet realise that he will also have to deal with this new peak in popularity. In the middle of the night, which is enough to disrupt any rider on the Dakar.

And you're right, it's more than possible that a female competitor has done even better than Veronique.

For amusement purpose, here is a video of presentation of all the women of the first Paris Dakar (hope you can see it outside of France)

Hi All,

Sorry for the delay in information, I have been choking on my result and not wanting to relive it.

so here it is My Dakar Day 3 - Short and Bitter,

So this years race has been brutal, my race came to an end on Day 3, not from crashing, exhaustion or mechanical problems but I was a victim of the organisers desire to make the toughest race in the world, the toughest race in the world.

Day 3 started fine, although as soon as the course opened up from the tight technical canyons we started in I came across broken bikes and riders.

At the fuel stop the photographer said he had picked up 4 riders with broken bones in the helicopter.

I seemed to have found a rhythm that worked and was navigating well and picking up some places without pushing (pushing is bad, you will crash).

Around 60kms from the end of the stage we started to climb in the mountains 2000m up to 4000m. On one of the climbs I got caught half way up when blocked by another rider and realised i had a major free flowing fuel leak. I did not want the bike to catch on fire so i kept it upright on the climb while the fuel drained away.

10mins later I ran out of fuel, I asked rider after rider if i could have some fuel and no one would spare any as the stage still had 60kms to go. Eventually an italian rider gave me a litre to continue up to CP2. I had wasted about 90mins trying to get fuel ( this is what put me in a bad position and late for the CP).

On getting to the bottom of a very technical and difficult climb at CP2 around 4000m, the organisation had placed their vehicle across the track and said the stage is closed as there is to many injured and missing riders , we are to wait here for news from race control.

There we broken bikes and people all about the place.

I called race control on my iritrack twice to confirm what was happening and they said it was with the jury, and we are to stay put.

Some riders turned back but 7 of us who were ready to go waited, we were held there until we were losing the light, the organisation said we must decend as the temperature will drop quickly.

We were constantly asking about our race position and what this delay means for our start the next day, we were told by race control arrangements were being made for a delayed start for us.

we were given the option to sleep in the mountains or ride to San juan bivouac for further instructions which we elected to do only to be told we must not ride the mountains at night as it is too dangerous. These instruction were given to us from the head of the race David Casters.

We froze at 2700m with only our plastic foil blanket and CP banners for warmth.

In the morning before dawn we were not allowed to leave as riders were still missing in the area and we could not leave until they were found.

Eventually we were able to leave and ride to San Jaun bivouac and then told to go the next bivouac 550kms away.

There we pleaded our case to the head of motorcycles who said it would go to the jury as we had missed the stage.

We were informed we had been excluded from the race 1 hr later.

We then took our protest to the race control who understood there had been a mistake but could do nothing about it.

We then took our protest to the head of the Dakar David Caster who agreed he had made a mistake but because they had lost control of the security of the race we would not be allowed to start the next day.

this argument went on for 3hrs.

the final word was "it is not possible" for us to start the next day.

they agreed we had followed the rules from the organisation exactly as required and that he had held us and made us miss the start and that was a mistake.

Still the verdict stood.

the 7 of us were excluded from Dakar 2014.

A very disappointing result we got F&@Łed by the ASO

Sorry I did not get there.

watch this space.

What they did accomplish is nothing to be taken lightly. They took on one of the biggest challenges of their lives and for that, they did succeed and each one of them, "winners"! My pride cup overflows for you all!

Men! Be proud! Be strong! Bring home your inner trophies and experiences! For the team AND the World; this isn't time to be sad, it's time to rally together and rejoice! Celebrate 2014 and make plans for 2015!!!

Dakar - The Ultimate Rally Race...our team may be temporarily battered, but you did not beat us. We will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David was ranked 19th on Monday the 8th stage Uyuni (Bolivia) - Calama (Chile) at 27'14 '' winner Cyril Despres ( Yamaha) . Overall, it is 11 to 2 h 49'19 '' leader Marc Coma ( KTM). Since his motorhome Calama , he says :
"This is the storm on the bivouac. It was a very long special . Was driving along the salt lake and the last 50 kilometers , we took the mud, rain . We were all miserable . The mechanics a little job. My clavicle hurts me but I hold out past each kilometer is one kilometer won.
When I take big shocks, I clench my teeth . I try to roll and have fun anyway. Bolivia is beautiful. As long as I can hold the handlebars , I will ride . I do not ride in the pace of the first , but my pace . The rally is not over , there will be big steps in the sand , it'll be tough . There may be some nice surprises . I will focus on my navigation and continue on my merry way. The bike runs well , here I am, still here.
For the rest of my career, it is important to see the rally otherwise, while staying focused on the race. "

Tuesday , the 9th stage will be played in Chile between Iquique and Calama (link : 29 km , Special : 422 km ) where competitors find the dunes of Atacama, then dive to the Pacific Ocean in the famous descent of Iquique .



Man this guy is so tough, and I love his attitude.

Go David!!!

I talked with him tonight more then hour over the phone, he will come on visit tomorrow or day after. He mentioned to post greetings to people, who followed his race this year as well as in past years from AdvRider and say thank you to all F5 crew here.

Anyway, he mentioned, that his bike has been retriever by special forces of the army from the "canyon". But even so, they don´t know how to chase the race, so they will transport those retriever bikes directly to finish and to the boat. Hopefully they will return all the valuable devices as all what he could save was ballise. GPS and everything else was on the bike as he expected that they will continue in the race, did not expected end of the race when he left the bike over there.

So, regarding the situation, he said that the 3D model of the canyon is not exactly correct, in fact he said, it was exactly like mirrored. But for imagination it´s OK. Simply he started descent in something, what was a track for sure. Nothing unexpected on this stage on the beginning. Later steep, very dangerous, but possible to descent. Problem was, that at certain place was possible to ride left on some rim, where was path blocked by a cliff or directly in the stream heading in the valley. He was sure, that they are on wrong route, but he expected, that is possible to ride it down and then find the correct direction in the bivouac. All the time was his GPS showing direction and distance between 8-10km. So he expected he will descent from the mountain and continue somewhere, where is the stream heading in the river or so. Valley or canyon was not crazy tight. First few km it was quite OK. Just lower and lower were rocky "steps" around big stones in the stream bed higher and higher. From initial 30-50cm high steps to later 1.5m high steps. This was not possible to ride, so he simply pulled bike down to "jump" alone on lower step and so on. Together with him were those two italian brothers doing the same. But in certain place was the canyon blocked by crashed huge piece of rock, several meters high and there was just tiny narrow hole between the wall and this rock. He was on the other side, was possible to get there, but not bike. He was even thinking later to dissasemble the bikes and in three people would be maybe possible to push/pull the bike body maybe with dismounted handlebar through this hole. They called the iritrack several times. When the operator asked, if there is anybody hurt and he said "no", they dissconected. He tried several times with same result. So he decided to blow balisse. But in about 20 minutes arrived the helikopter and they were instructed to leave the bikes where they are and first chopper left with one of the italian brothers and returned in another 15 minutes for the second italian and Jan. He said, that the chopper had big problems to start. Spinning rotor for at least 5-7 minutes and it was like they will not get off the ground. Finally they started, but was obvious, that this chopper will never lift the bikes from there. It had not enough power. Anyway, in the bivouac he has been told, that once the bikes will be retrieved, he can continue, but it did not happened. He got several apologizes from ASO people and he (as others) will sure ask for at least start money back as the whole situation was pure organisation error. He said, that that day was organisation in total stress. Such complicated track and they did all with simmilar number of people as if there would be just one track for bikes and cars. So he think, there were not enough ORG people and those who were there did not know, what to do exactly and created more problems then in there would be nobody. He strictly repeated that without direct information from the person on top of the hill to follow given direction, he would not descent so deep. He expected that there is some big problem on the path to bivouac and they give them detour or shortcut to ride over it or so. Anyway, in the area was many riders spread on quite large distance. They were not on one place. There were kilometers between them. And he said, that even walking uphill was from their place almost impossible as he had to jump down from the rock steps in the stream, but climbing up was task for climber, not tired biker in MX boots. But he was surprised to see one biker (bright white KTM) and Camelia later next morning starting in the next stage. Italians were pointing to that biker and told him, that he was with them the night before locked in the rocks. He got somehow down. He was about 2km higher in the mountain, so probably discovered exit path down from there. How the quad with Camelia got down, he don´t know, but also she was much higher then they. He said, that nobody was lower in the canyon then him and the italien brothers.
So he is quite low now, all the energy and money spent for preparations are gone and biggest issue for him is, that he did not finish due to bike failure or personal injury or so. Member of organisation team working as "route commisar" must be respected and all racers has in the rules, that must follow instructions of route management team. This is for safety etc. So even when roadbook say go straight, where there is organisation person with the car, who point you to go left, you have to go left. You dont know, what happened there - there may be danger, falling rocks, landed chopper giving help to somebody etc. You dont know. When the ORG person show you to follow this direction, you dont argue and go. In this case it was wrong. And this is, what he has bad feeling from, what is source of his dissapointment. Otherwise he said that at least first stages were not rallye racing, but regular hard enduro racing stretched over long distance. But he enjoys this maybe even more then high speed flying on straight pistas.

This is a good point, to which Bluebull also alludes to a few posts before (#8015) - certainly ASO needs to ensure that the stages are achievable based on the start times of all the competitors...

HOWEVER, in this particular circumstance Clayton admits to having a problem with a fuel leak, and ended up wasting an hour and half trying to source some petrol - similarly the story about the riders who were sent back down after one had broken an engine - these riders had all suffered a misfortune on the stage - fuel leak/broken engine - it was not that they were not capable of riding the stage within the time frame allowed.

As a further illustration of this, #99 Paul Jay stated the day 13 positions behind #129 Clayton Jacobsen - yet he made it to the CP2 and the bivouac within the prescribed time allowed. Similarly he also followed the correct road book route, and did not go down one of the wrong canyons - of course we need to hear from him if he also witnessed the 'Pointy Man(ny)' up on the hill - I imagine he did as Paul would have been at that point on the stage later in the day, unless Man(ny) had disappeared again by that point.

To me, both of these incidents illustrate perfectly 'Dakar Luck' - if you can ride a steady race without incident, you ought to pass each check in reasonable time. But have something go wrong, and it's ongoing effect very soon catches up with you...

Don't get me wrong, I have every sympathy for Clayton and the other six riders regarding their treatment by ASO on the morning of stage 4 - and THAT is my point (which I repeat from a similar post pages and pages back now, just after it happened) - the only thing ASO did wrong was that 'magnificent seven' were given false hope by the ASO in suggesting they would be able to ride to the Marathon bivvy the following morning and start stage 4, when clearly (according to the rules) if you fail to finish a stage, you cannot start the next day, and are excluded.

Yes it sucks for those 7 competitors - but for the 124 that did make it to the checks and bivouac in time, it would suck even more?

Overall standing at DSS of Stage 9 courtesy of www.trackindakar.com (donated yet?)


The first three can change/not change an engine with the 15 min penalty having no effect on the overall. Our only hope for significant changes in the Top 5 is some big drama. Maybe something in the big dunes ahead, but with the front three today, opening the track in today's particular order, hummm, nor probable.

I'm not sure, let me explain what I saw on the ground and we can try to correlate to what we see in timing.

1) There are quite some number of WPM and WPS (hidden waypoints), speed control areas within the stage (which have waypoints), etc. each day- on the order of maybe 20? Each of these is "checked off" on the GPS as you pass within a close enough radius of it. I have always assumed (but don't know for sure) that these populate into the timing we see on Dakar.com/ Mischa's (awesome) site. Now that I question that assumption, I'm not sure it is so.

2) There are physically people on the ground writing on your card at ASS, DSS, any gas stop, and typically at the beginning and end of any neutralization. I am nearly certain these "touch" points are populated to live timing.

3) Each bike has two ways of reaching the mothership: both the GPS and the Iritrack have Sat phone and GPS antennas. I'm not clear on which one does what as it relates to the background scoring function.

It was a very complicated stage. I started very quickly, but Marc (Coma) accelerated and caught up with me in the dunes at the end of the stage. I'm happy, because I did the best I can, I really did. There are two very hard days left. I'm going to carry on at the same pace. Tomorrow I'll be opening the way, but I'm happy with the work that I'm doing


Cyril
As the organisers say, a day with a lot of everything, a lot of navigation and a lot of rios. There was a quite nice track that was twisty until the 200 km point. It was nice, with nice skids and nice corners. Then we arrived in the part that is a little bit more complicated for the hands, wrists and arms. It was really bumpy with a lot of rocks. It was demanding, but everything like this, to arrive here via this descent, well, it's a nice place to be.

Coma
It was a complicated stage in the Atacama Desert. Very nice and very fast at the beginning, but on the last part we found some dunes. I tried to catch Joan, because he started two minutes in front of me. When I caught up with him I tried to follow to ride together to the end. It was a good day for me.

I think he is asking for a slow clap...
