Okay so Hoyen is in on the official figures. Someone must have taken pity on him or he found his passport

Not a single rider dropped out today! That improves things a little bit.

I think they did, they got a welcome party in the middle of the race. And got TV exposure outside the regular TV coverage, but Probably some of them also thought that the welcome was more like a circus than an actual race. IMO

Sunday, January 12, 2014 - Step 7

David was ranked 15th in the seventh stage, played yesterday between Salta (Argentina) and Uyuni (Bolivia) at 15'48'' Barreda Bort winner (Honda). Despite a broken collarbone, he remains at the 9th place overall, 2 h 23'50'' leader, Marc Coma (KTM). Due to the weather (thick low clouds) conditions not allowing helicopters to go on the course and ensure the safety of the competition, the course was shortened towards Uyuni.
"We sleep at 4000 m altitude, many drivers are sick, vomit, says David, bivouac Uyuni. Was struggling to breathe. The special was relatively fast with a lot of tracks, it was slippery. I am still very cautious, I'm sure for this restart. J'avance day after day is one more day, I try to drive on the technical rather than on the physical. I try well put my bike in the corners. Now I await the dunes of Chile and the sand to try to make a quick navigation. My collarbone me great pain, I feel the bones moving. I have already taken go to the hospital Larchet with Professor Boileau, on Wednesday I returned to my surgery. "

Finally, David wants to talk about this passage in Bolivia: "Welcome Bolivians was amazing, there were thousands of people, it was an amazing show."
Today, the 8th stage (second day of the marathon stage) link Uyuni (Bolivia) to Calama (Chile) for connection of 230 km and a special of 462 km.


GOoo David!!

Dakar - The Ultimate Rally Race - 12/01/2014 – Stage 7

The first leg of the second marathon stage, which took the riders for the first time into Bolivia, was won by Joan Barreda ahead of Marc Coma with Cyril Despres, aboard his Yamaha YZF 450 Rally, third (at 5’35). Cyril’s support rider Michael Metge finished 17th at 18’31. Overall Cyril moves up a place to 10th (at 2h26) and Michael Metge 14th at 3h36. This evening, isolated from the rest of the rally, that has remained in Argentina, it is currently impossible to contact the riders to have their impressions of the stage, though it is hoped that communications might improve later on in the evening. In the meantime this what Cyril said to a member of the organisation on arriving at the bivouac:

"I took care with my breathing while we were up on two or three rdiges because we were riding at altitude and when you’re braking hard and riding in attack mode you can feel that you are physically limited. A nice special, not too much navigation, but a lot of mud. You have to be careful in the mud and streams. It is so easy to fall in or get stuck. Once the water is brown you can’t tell if it is 20 cm deep or 50. The bike doesn’t look too pretty like this covered in mud but we’ll clean out the radiator so that the cooling system functions OK."



My friend Francesco's FB:
La mia Dakar e terminata ,ora vado a Calama e prendo un volo per Santiago grazie a tutti ,in modo particolare alla mia famiglia e a Serg,la Dakar mi da sempre tanto ,ma in cambio vuole tanto.
Ora metto un punto e riparto. Ciao a tutti

Dunno about anyone else, but since DC carried on so valiantly I'd been assuming his collarbone was likely just banged up, not broken.

Ladies & Germs, DC's one tough dude!

Yeah too right Cyril we know how you manage things in mud. Getting stuck would have been disastrous for you....

He broke the end of it. Must be really sore.

I spoke to a colleague who was out at the finish today. He is not normally a Dakar guy but seeing he was near Uyuni he went to have a look.

"It was great fun though watching the guys. Two of the guys fell in the river crossing right in front of us. Both are ok and continued. I don’t know why they make finish line so far out of town. It would have been a lot better closer to town. The main road was blocked by the police and everybody had to make use of all the small dirt roads to get there. It was horrible, but great fun."
