Talk about turds...which turds were polished when JBB got a 15 MINUTE penalty the same as CdP for speeding...... Unless you think JBB and or Honda are the only turds.....................

Not everything is a conspiracy you know.

JBB got fifteen minutes for doing a certain speed over the limit for a certain amount of time. The same for Despres, but in a different place at a different speed for a different penalty. Both are however, calculated in exactly the same way.

I understand that, both penalties were just under the conditions of both. What I find offensive is that Honda, JBB or the position earned compared with a "turd".

I dunno. If the fastest guy out there continually drives off acliff, and the second fastest guy continually gets to the finish line ahead of fast guy, the campaign was a failure, eh? But I guess he will never have lived if he didnt try..

Your guess is better than what you know.

Youre difficult to reason with. OH well, maybe next year for Honda, unless they hurl themselves into a wall at full tilt boogie again. They were sure doing pretty well up till then.

It's been a tricky Dakar for me having been in NY (instead of London) for two weeks, plus having very limited internet in the evenings and no TV at all!

That said I've enjoyed following thanks to the contributions on here from you guys. It's definitely been the quietest I've been on a Dakar thread but I've read every page (OK, skim-read some) and am looking forward to getting home and watching all the Eurosport coverage I've been recording. I'm also slightly dreading getting back and finding I've recorded no Dakar but have excellent ski jumping and snooker coverage to watch

You should learn to relax.

Being offended by stuff like this is really not worth it.

Looking at Mischa's tracker... was Mike Johnson literally the ONLY US finisher?

I'm sure this is a massive 205.
