Will try to apologies to the F5 community with a couple of funny stories from the only Italian bikers left in the race:

Paolo Ceci managing his thirst:
"It was at the end of the fifth stage's special. I was really thirsty and the water in my camel bag was already finished. <...> At a certain point I caught the reflection of a bottle of Coca Cola from a hundred meters away. It was in the hands of a guy in the middle of other spectators. It was icy cold, I could see the little drops on the bottle's surface. So I thought "That must be mine!". I went in that direction with the bike and all. I stopped in front of this guy with the bottle in his hands, and without saying a word I snatched it and drank. I emptied the bottle, all at once without even breathing. It felt like the best Coca Cola in my life!"
He is currently riding with an injured hand from the fourth stage and basically he's doing water carrier for Chavo!
Translated from: http://www.omnicorse.it/magazine/337...non-si-arrende

Luca Viglio gotta love Bolivia:
"I was at refurbishing in the city and all the people gathered around me, asking where I am from, my name and a lot of information about me. I kept answering all these people and then "the ritual" of making pictures with them, their relatives, friends, ecc. Once all the tanks were filled I went to the guy of the gas station to pay but he answered "You owe me nothing, they payed for you" It was an emotional moment with all these people that wanted to thank me for the time I spent with them. So I started the bike and greeted everyone and when I screamed "Viva Bolivia!" the crowd literally exploded!"
<...>
Before getting at the end of the stage Luca stopped a few times to regain strenght since the last days have been very stressing for him [he basically rode the last two marathon stages with only his third, fourth and fifth gear]. During one of these break he was feeling really "down" and really tired. He was hanging to the handlebar of his Beta when a Bolivian lady gently touched his shoulder. He turned and she stood there with a big smile, then without saying a word she gave him a very small bolivian flag as a gift."This gesture so simple and in the meantime so full of meanings had me regaining strength instantly. I wish I would hugged and kissed that lady, but I started and got back to the stage instead, with my "batteries" completely recharged"
Translated from: http://www.omnicorse.it/magazine/338...fosi-boliviani

By the way... He is in!

After attacking the day's stage the knife between his teeth while he was in the lead bike of the stage and general engine problem which unfortunately forced Alain abandoned. He got pulled over several miles by a teammate, but familiar with the now legendary arrival at Iquique with its steep descent and large dunes above to have it made ​​in 2011, do not tow in this sector .. . A rolling one that already is a big piece. Big disappointment, but the Dakar as they say. Congratulations to Alain Duclos [Official] for its superb performance since the start of the Dakar particularly difficult and the team CrocoAventures Sherco Rally Raid that made us vibrate and dream every day. Good luck to Team riders still in the race and I'm sure the beautiful prototype developed by the team will continue to evolve for the next edition

Below is a plot of variations from the leader's time by stage. I left out Coma and Bort as they both still have an hour lead over positions three and beyond. What is remarkable is that Cyril (orange line) has lost very little time from the leader after stage 5 while everybody else continues to climb in variation. Given a few more stages with the same result he will likely pass Prygonski, Rodrigues, and Pain. Esquerre is in the crosshairs too. That would put him in fourth place at the end. Anything happens to Coma, Bort, or Viladoms in the last three stages and Cyril is on the podium. Sly bastard.

So, we have no idea when the change took place and how long it takes before the penalty is shown in the standings.

Besides Viladoms, of the front 10, only Pain has an engine change penalty (since Stage 6 IIRC). Barreda got a 15 min penalty yesterday but it is a speeding one.

I'm on the bivouac-or should I say sand storm, I rode the 230 liaison with Shane Diener, it was long and boring. I had a mixed day-I was going well but at CP 1 after refuelling I notice fuel coming from my rear tank, I had to go, so I used up the rear first but the leak was at the hose fitting so on the fast sections when the throttle was wide open I was also sucking air so I would have to switch to the front tanks, I did this back and forward for the 230 k's to CP 2, after that the front tanks would have enough once filled again to take me to the Chilean border-the finish, I lost some time but I think the altitude did not affect me as much and I managed to make good time. It was a long SS-it was extended to 500k's so now I'm pretty warn out. It was fast but requiring loads of concentration and following the road book perfectly, avoiding the hundreds and hundreds of cautions which would end it in a second. We have some very long SS coming up. I have yet to check tomorrow's road book which will be marked soon, one day at a time.

This next one after the last stage.


"Allan Roberts"- Stage 9

My rally nearly ended today, I lost my rear wheel nut at about km 180. I truly thought it was over, then along came fellow Aussie Troy O'Conner, i asked him if he had a wheel nut and the answer was YES. I lost some time but thats fine I'm still in. It was another gruelling intense day with the last 40 kms of massive dunes.
Im tired, my body is very tired-just need to get through the next 3 days, they are very long and a lot of it in the dunes, and the Atacama desert.
And then the last day is hopefully a walk in the park.
I must finish this

Seems like his Karma earned by giving Przygonski his rear wheel has come back to help him.

We're all willing him on here , If you could too that would be great !
Tough Tough

Correction from ASO re:Jere Israel

it turns out jeremías israel esquerra did not crash with a car after all. Instead, he hit a rocky outcrop as he was riding with joan barreda on a narrow section of the course.

Seventh-placed Jakub Przygoński, 2 h 23'33' down at the end of yesterday's stage, moved up one spot due to the withdrawal of Jeremías Israel Esquerre. Despres needs to gain 4'40' on the Pole to overtake him, and he has taken back 3'20' so far. Will he pull it off?

Hello everyone,

I'm sitting back in the motorhome , train ride south on the Panamericana ( the road that runs along the west coast of South America) . It was the Pacific Ocean to our right and the Andes to the left. I try to appreciate the beauty of these landscapes and " far, but it's probably still a little early ...

Yesterday, CP 1, I had taken 5 min Viladoms and was therefore returned 3rd overall.
I leave the rally in this place without ever leaving the Top 5 during the 9 days of racing ( 13 !) . Despite the most noted of these last 5 years shelf !

I will remember many things of this adventure.
Firstly, the great enthusiasm and momentum of sympathy that prompted the performance of our "small" team! I received articles from around the world , and I realize gradually the feat we have achieved .

Then, having reached a significant milestone . I feel it. Not only in terms of pure speed, but also in terms confidence, stature. Be 3rd Dakar has never stressed me at any time . I even thought it was normal (! ). Amusing , and also galvanizing .
Idem, win the special seemed normal , I l " had announced the previous team manager . (But I still furious at myself missed the 4th step , j" of 'll win that one too !) .
This course crossed , I capitalize . This will be important for the future ...

Finally, I will remember "WE" . That is the link that unites us and who has thrilled us all for 10 days. I know some have rolled through me. N Know that I "ve never ridden one ! I read all the messages that were sent to me ! This is very important! Can not feel tired or give up as you get messages that you m have it sent ! It's impossible !
I can not thank you enough for these stories , you can not imagine their strengths ... THANK YOU!

Disappointment will fade slowly giving way to pride in having delivered a great race !

I now look forward to arrived at the bivouac of Antofogasta . That starts around a table with Laurent , Alex and Fred ( technical team ) because I have some ideas to submit to continue their development of the bike ...

Alain

PS I will reply to each of you in the days and weeks ahead, but do not blame me , I qq 600 mails late ... !

This year you have more factory involvement challenging KTM with HRC, Yamaha and SpeedBrain.

And you have incredible underdog stories through out.

And to me...

this stage of the race, at the final third, IS where it all shakes out. All bets before this moment are pure conjuncture. And it's at the beginning of this stage where the stark realities of the previous week begin to add additional pressures on the field.

To me THIS IS THE DEFINING MOMENT OF THE RACE. Those who played their cards properly to this point? Those who skirted major malfunctions. Those who were able to stick with a solid gameplan, not to over push, not to get caught up in another rider's race. And those who positioned themselves on the better side of luck.

And of all the qualities required to get to this point, I think the riders most valuable skill was their ability to maintain their FOCUS.

And this is the point of the race where all the pressures collide on the riders to deteriorate that focus.

This is where mistakes are the most costly... missed waypoints, unneccessary risks, overpushing the equipment.

This is where the race switches from a physical race to a psychological battle, a test of mental strength. For riders to succeed it's the ability to shut out all the distractions, the physical pain and exhaustion, indecision, poor decisions, confusion... They must maintain a singular focus... one of completing the race at the most effecient and effective pace, no faster, no slower... an having immediate reactions against any opposition to that goal.

To me, I always find this section of the Dakar the most fascinating. This is where the true strengths of the competitors comes out. RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

This is what the Dakar boils down to... to this point, and at this point.

And from this point...

As we wind down to the FINAL ACT.
