David was 16th of the 9th stage Calama - Iquique to 33'47 '' winner Marc Coma ( KTM). Despite his broken collarbone , but well strappée shoulder , the Frenchman was able to reach the finish line after the special of 422 km in the dunes of the Atacama ending with a steep descent to Iquique on the Pacific .
"It was a special one brittle, the feared a little, he had fesh -fesh there with hidden stones , says David , visibly tired after a very difficult step. As I struggled to hold the handlebars , I have tried to ride clean. well I anticipated my paths. arriving in Iquique is amazing , I have a great idea for Luc Palante ( the Belgian driver died on the Dakar , ed), this motorcycle enthusiast who lived Dakar thoroughly. We are privileged to ride in these landscapes. This big descent to the ocean has been particularly difficult , it is not necessary that I put the bike on the ground. the sand was very soft , I read the dunes, I now have a pace finisher and adventurer. this is not easy to finish the Dakar . "

David even won a place overall , dating back to 10th place , 3 h 23'06 leader Marc Coma.
"I won a place as Duclos ( Sherco ) abandoned ( engine failure ) . Everybody pulls hard on the engine and no driver in front did changé.Tout can happen but there are a lot of competitors coming back strong . I ride and see . "

Today, the 10th stage with a 631 km long special takes the remaining drivers Iquique to Antofagasta .



Wednesdays January 15, 2014 - Step 10

Despite the pain of his broken collarbone , David was ranked 18th in the 10th stage Iquique - Antofagasta after a step into two parts of 631 km in 29'57 '' winner Barreda (Honda) . It remains to 10th place overall , 3 h 41'54 '' leader Marc Coma ( KTM).
" I resist , I resist ! Loose KTM pilot upon his arrival in Antofagasta . Morflé I in the first stage, I threw everything I knew. I was tense , stressed by the fear of falling and not . unable to meet the bike I had a stomach ache I felt no longer expertise motorcycle And then I said to myself : . . . " Roule , treat yourself " And I went up gradually . It was a special very long, very difficult fesh -fesh with many brittle, it was not easy to hold moto.Je do not know where I'll get this will know. Dakar is a big adventure , a big discount in personal issues , a fight over yourself. Every kilometer is a personal battle I ended with the willingness to go after . "

Also in the top 10 despite his injury, David surprised everyone in the Dakar
" Doctors do not believe ... Like what , with the will, the reactions of the human body can be amazing ."

Today, the 11th stage will Antofagasta to El Salvador for a 144 km link and 605 km long special in the dunes of the Atacama .





This guy is a machine but for how long can he keep it up? You can see the pain has aged him on this rally. Now we know why he looked unhappy today. He had to dig very deep indeed.

Its curious to notice how much older people look towards the end of the rally than what they really are.

Hi! Today it was a difficult day. Everything was fine until 20 km to finish line, when clutch failed. I could repair (thanks Pablo Rodríguez) but I spent 2 hours to restart. What a pity! I had top15 on Dakar - The Ultimate Rally Race on my hands, but I'm happy to continue on the race. Now I'm 19th overall
In #Dakar always there is a bad day. For me was today. My bike is amazing and I'm very grateful to my team. Thank you for your messages!!! You are great!!!

Past & present: Heinz Kinigadner on the Dakar


The name Heinz Kinigadner is inextricably linked to the most famous rally race in the world. The Austrian did not win the Dakar, he didn’t even reach the finish line in the seven versions he attempted, but the former motocross World Champion opened the KTM era in the event’s 36 year history and has been a keen follower, supporter and campaigner for the Dakar since his involvement in the early 1990s. We took the chance to note some of his views as the 53 year old always proves to have an entertaining and illuminating perspective …
On the 2014 Dakar being one of the most exciting in many years with three brands focusing on top riders, excellent team structure and advanced technology…
“Absolutely! We had a meeting with all the guys except from Chaleco only a few days ago in Mattighofen. It was very nice and everybody is aware that 2014 is a big one and a new step for Dakar. In the last twelve years it has been KTM’s and it would be quite clear who would win. It created some difficult situations inside the team because we, as KTM, were not in a position to take a clear direction. If Marc was complaining then it was against Cyril and vice-versa so we had to take a step back and it was not easy for everybody involved in that KTM entry. We were not really out there fighting the others, but against ourselves.”
On his personal memories of the Dakar…
“I remember starting to push KTM towards this race and almost everybody inside the company at the time thought I was crazy because they said the bike was not built for such long distance rallies but from the beginning I really saw the potential of the Dakar. It happens at a time of the year where there is no other motorsport, that motorcycle riders are thinking about what to do and that the coverage showed pictures and images that you couldn’t really see or find anywhere else.


It was more like an adventure than high level sport, even though inside it is very much like that. It was another dimension for KTM customers and moved the company up another level. Even this year for example our Adventure bike – which is one of the most modern – was our best seller and we had a window already made for that product. Anyway, it is true that I started the Dakar with a bike that was not really ready for those long distances! So there were technical problems. Four times I stopped because of those and another three through crashing after other technical problems! I was not that young when it came to racing the Dakar but it was hard for a hot motocrosser to find the balance between safety and speed and I was not really looking for it because for me it was the biggest adventure you could have. The Dakar was reassuring because you have helicopter and emergency radios and so on; safer compared to riding on your own in the desert. The Dakar is still f*^king dangerous because when you are doing 600-700km per day keeping your concentration up for two weeks then … well, this is one point that scares me a lot. Since KTM went into Dakar in 1992 until today then all of our bad accidents with factory riders – with the exception of Pit Beirer – have been at the Dakar or in other Rallies. It is a wonderful sport but it is also very upsetting when you losing your friends.”
“I remember starting to push KTM towards this race and almost everybody inside the company at the time thought I was crazy because they said the bike was not built for such long distance rallies but from the beginning I really saw the potential of the Dakar.”
On a specific Dakar recollection…
“If I think back to my first Dakar there was no GPS. In the second they started with the simple ones and this was when we were able to input as many points as we wanted. There were no maps just points, so you could see shorter routes but you never knew if there was a mountain to cross, a river or sand dunes. Sometimes we took those risks and went to cut those routes that saved 15km or whatever. Sometimes you could make it, sometimes not. But if you did it and crossed a difficult area and took something like 20 minutes on the boys then these were special and nice moments. KTM has been part of the Dakar for twenty years now and the first ones we did were without support trucks or any organisation and without a bike that was really ready for that race. It was like going into war. When we saw the outcome in terms of media and coverage it was crazy. I have to say that my two world titles in motocross were almost nothing compared to those days at the Dakar, media-wise. Everybody in Austria seemed to have been watching it. Dakar is a two-week hit and if you see it for two days then you know it will be on the next day, and the day after that. The Motocross championship would stop and start because of the dates and you’d lose connection. I was surprised. I flew to Vienna afterwards and every taxi driver and even people in the street were saying ‘hey! You’re the guy from the Dakar’. I did so much more work for my world titles but the Dakar was so much better for exposure!”
“I did so much more work for my world titles but the Dakar was so much better for exposure!”
In why people go back to the Dakar…
“People have called me a crazy motorcyclist with his brain clicked off but if you are part of something or a scene then you understand why you do it. When I was a motocross rider I did not even watch those rallies. I thought ‘this is not real sport’ but when you cannot do something at the top level anymore then you look around to see where else you can be good and I made a big discovery. To be able to ride through landscapes where people haven’t been – only helicopters – is wonderful. One time I was going through the desert with a friend of mine, the boss from Red Bull, and he said to me ‘I feel like John Wayne!’. It was amazing where we were. And this is the point. Personally for me it had a big impact because I am from a mountainous region so to see all of that hugeness was a big thing! You could just ride and ride for 2000km. The combination of that and controlling a motorcycle on the limit where there is so little room for error – you come around a corner with centimetres to spare and you know nobody else can do it quicker – it is a special feeling and brings you into a kind of ‘flow’. You feel unbreakable and unbeatable and that you are the best. This is the racing aspect. Match it with the adventure and there you have it. On the bike I have crossed South America from Peru to Rio. I have gone from Paris to Moscow to Beijing. Across Australia and the first Dakar for me was from Paris to Cape Town. For me it was a way to see the world and to see places that I never would have been.”

“To be able to ride through landscapes where people haven’t been – only helicopters – is wonderful. One time I was going through the desert with a friend of mine, the boss from Red Bull, and he said to me ‘I feel like John Wayne!´ [...] And this is the point.”
On the relocation to South America…
“For the Dakar South America was a big ‘win’. It is massive there now and it is starting to grow in North America, which was not always the case in Africa. North America is a big market for the manufacturers. The website mentions three-four million live spectators and that is a huge deal. I do not think it will come back to Africa. Africa is limited because it is not so safe away from the coast. The whole format of the race seems to be changing and there are more motorhomes and families involved now. It is a very, very different event than when it was in Africa. When you were going through Mali you might see a little town and then know there was nothing else for 800km; you had that feeling of being totally alone. In South America it is a bit different and Marc Coma and the guys told me that if you don’t see a building or hut with spectators for more than five or six kilometres then you have taken the wrong way! Anyway, it is great and an important race for all of us. Maybe in the future we can have two versions. One that is more like the old-style Africa and one that follows the newer version. If you see the bikes now then KTM with its 450 RALLY and Honda are producing some great stuff. I think if you gave it to our MX1 World Champion Cairoli he would make some decent lap-times on a motocross circuit; the handling is that good. They are different now from the ‘big ships from Africa’ – as we used to call them – that were made for going flat-out in a straight line.”

SS1
Bikes crushed by trucks, and few broken bones but everyone somehow finished

SS2
Lost riders, heatstroke, bulls, broken road books, heat exhaustion, burning bikes, big dunes, deep sand, crashed machines everywhere, people crashing into crashed bikes, camelbacks, slinging fuel tanks from broken bikes as fuel bowsers, and stolen motorbikes, and shot (not) spectators.

SS3
More of broken pilots, exploding tyres, burnt out cars, steep mountain climbs, late starts, canyongate, Shoestring turns to G-Strings, helicopter rescues, missing mustache men, fractured elbows, egos, dislocated knee-moania, blankets & food in the cold mountains

SS4
Bikers at the start without their bikes, riders getting hopelessly lost, snot & tears from everyone, blown up engines, slippery ridges, Gonk with wrecked nav tower, short circuited iritracks, someone burns his car saving us from more ski dude tv impressions.

SS5
Garbage data from ASO, F5 team seriously agitated, irritracks confused, irriGate, naviGate, burning bikes, other bikes breaking, aliens lost, more heat stroke, dehydration and general chaos, Laia steady in all this, and sadly we lose Eric

SS6
Chaleco Dive! Dive! Dive! statorGate, are broken, everyone gets lost again just for fun, Despres has a fuelGate and misses some waypoints, Bang Bang only crashes once, stage cut short almost everyone survives.

SS7
Arrrrrrrrrrrrribba Bolilililiviaaaa!!! Live coverage for the first time in years,
El Presidente chases the bikes in his helicoptero, Chavo becomes a national Rock Star and nearly burns out from the strain, mud pools and some rain, massive crowds, amazing generosity, lost passports, ponchos and bowler hats, and all is right in the Dakar world.

SS8
llama pajamas, Coma gets a jazz blues voice, Duclos has a mechanical, salt and Salar, some rain and mud, vomiting and soroche, a couple of crashes and a bivouac from hell.

SS9
Everyone's just tired and sore and irritable. Sick riders getting better, lots of dust for lunch, fesh-fesh, Kuba has a Moto GP off, Sherco blows up, the huge dune. No one notices the huge dune downhill.

SS10
Quads crashing into cars and bikes into spectators, long liaisons, F5 attrition snowballs, Rest day? What rest day? Can they make the finish?? We learn a new word: Fanboysim. The Matador goes bang bang in neutralization!

Goodness me, What will tomorrow bring?

Today was good, I had no dramas and tonight I'm feeling good.

The bike is going strong but I rode in a lot of dust behind some quads, it took me some time to pass, but prevailing eventually. So again tonight road book, eat, refill, sleep, and and early start tomorrow for another challenging day-perhaps the toughest!"



and this hopefully no one will mind me sharing was posted on his FB page from his mum

"From MUM.
LIFE -
'Life can only be understood by looking backward, but it must be lived by looking forward". So look forward to those finish lines and when you have crossed them then you can reflect and have the time to absorb all that you have achieved. This is one of your dreams. You have made it a reality so keep focusing, you are nearly there. Love MUM "


Go Mum !

Goooo Robbo

And here is a close up of the right rear tire completely shredded:

It was a slow start for Broadlink KTM’s Riaan van Niekerk as he dived into the first of two specials for the day. The first was 231 Km’s long and started in the dunes, Riaan felt uncomfortable and struggled to find his rhythm, he soon adjusted and felt stronger in the second 215 Km special which consisted mainly of fast tracks with loads of fesh fesh. Riaan again got attached to Yamaha’s Michael Metge and they spent most of the day together. Riaan took a bath in the fesh fesh, crashing in the soft powder, “the stuff goes everywhere, it’s like a magnet”. He rode a cautious day as the Dakar added Jeremiah Israel to the list of non finishers, Jeremiah crashed out when there was a kink in the track and he went straight into the rocks. Riaan placed 12th on the stage just 23 minutes and 29 seconds down. He moves into 12th overall.

Cyril and Mika marking up their road books with green clay under cling film on their wrists. They are not part of some strange sect. It's to relieve the pain after having already ridden over 6000 kilometers. Tomorrow 605 kilometers of special!

Hola amig@s!!
En la etapa de hoy, a la altura del km 20, se me rompió el amortiguador trasero y pasé toda la especial sin amortiguador eso daba bastante inestabilidad a la parte trasera de la moto y debía ir rectificando todo el rato. La etapa era larguisima, ha costado que pasara x las condiciones del amortiguador.

Hemos llegado en 7ª posición, era el día de apretar aunque no he podido hacerlo todo lo que quería. Estamos contentos xk la rotura del amortiguador podría habernos dejado fuera de la carrera o provocado una caída y en cambio estamos ya en el campamento con una etapa menos que afrontar y una etapa menos para llegar a Valparaiso.

Un día menos! una etapa más!!!

I lost my rear shock on today's stage at km 20. I spent the whole stage without the shock and that rendered the bike unstable forcing me to correct it all the time. The stage was very long, it was hard to see it pass in those conditions.

We arrived in 7th, it was the day to push it although I coudln't do it as much as I wanted. We're happy because the broken shock could have left us out of the race or caused a fall and instead we're at the bivouac with one less stage to face and one less stage to reach Valparaiso

Coma must have come off at some point? We did not see it in his times.

Barreda 1hour15minutes ahead of Viladoms, heck, they can change his engine twice tonight and he would still have a 15 minute lead over Jordi V.

Wonder if everyone else is going for an engine change tonight. Pain's is on his second engine. For Helder/Despres it will be worth to make it all in one engine. Quite remarkable if they do.

The 1st three look like they're safe. Even Viladoms who shown good form today and is 13m44s ahead of Pain.

And I wonder if Coma's train on the bicycle included a lot of these

Pretty happy. Was a really long day for us. We are on the last part of the rally so we have to be focus. More that ever because we've been throught lots of kilometers and our shape conditions aren't the same ones as we started. We gotta keep our pace and being consistent at the same time which is not an easy way to keep up with. We have a lot to do, in fact tomorrow will be a very though and important day so..... let's slow down for a bit.
Let's slow down a bit,

"By: Joan Barreda | January 16, 2014
This morning I did not left to the stage with a good feeling. I was not comfortable in thea dunes. But I remained calm . I knew I was loosing time, but also that I had 500km of special ahead. I had left with a full tank, to the brim , because in the sand the bike consumes so much more and as the fuel has gone down I've started to feel better, I gained confidence and I started to navigate better . So I've also started to catch riders who were ahead . It has hard for all the dust left by the bikes in front : Viladoms , Helder , that of Svitko ... I had to overtake them with all the dust , hardly seeing anything. But at the end I have four stage winnings!

With today's special I've cut eleven minutes to Marc , but I realize that even without the 15´penalty things woudn't be much different. Plus, tomorrow he will leave behind and it will be the usual: he will win time. Unless something unexpected happens . That will not happen ...

Thursday 's stage , a 600km special and with three days to finish the race is not the time to push hard like I did the last few days. I could push in the first 350 kms but then comes 250 kms of dunes where you can easily get stuck . Third place is more than an hour and 20 minutes behind me so I could take some risks in navigation, but I fear that is not the right day to try it, I would not profit enough . It's Not worth it. Also , one has to start thinking about the bike. We have accumulated many kms and must take care to avoid any mafunction that would ruin all the work done so far.

On the other hand, we must recognize that Marc is doing a fine race: the guy has raced and has defended his position very well . Beyond the fact that he has not had any mechanical problem, Marc has taken a courageous attitude and has not been conservative at any time. Besides, unlucky us, he is doing ​​a Dakar without any problems. It has been very rare in recent years that it happens like that and we have to compete also with that."

Also reporting that Barreda had exhaust prob (crushed?) after the getover, so he was left with less power besides no navigation.

Michael Metge finished 11th on special to move up to 12th overall.

Cyril Despres

“Six hours 38 minutes – that’s a long day’s racing and in 605 kilometres of special we had pretty much everything – climbs, descents, sand, pistes, rios – the lot. I was hoping to get pulled along by Barreda but unfortunately he crashed heavily and destroyed his navigation gear, so I ended up opening the piste again – this time for 400 kilometres. And inevitably when you open its difficult to pull back time. Tomorrow I start behind Marc and I think there’s a strong chance I’ll end up opening again. He’s pretty comfortably installed in the lead and if he pulls over and lets me pass he’ll be helping his team mate Viladoms.”

Michael Metge

“If I’d done this special last year I’d have been completely exhausted at the end of it. But this year, with my new fitness regime, I feel pretty good, despite almost 7 hours on the bike. And now ‘the boss’ has ‘suggested’ that I ride the static bike for 20 minutes to aid recuperation. I can’t complain – he’s just done the same!”





Cyrils only 23 min out of podium with two days left? Oh it aint over yet.
