Not much in it today for a long (4 hour) special.
52 in on Dakar.com and only about an hour separating them all.
JC finished 33rd only 38 mins down so not too shabby with his bumps and bruises.
Helder is in at 6, less than 10 mins down - bike apart, he just hasn't seemed to be the Helder we all expected.
The bike, well it seems to have served Pizzolito quite well, who was essentially Zanols waterboy and potentially the 4th quickest in the HRC team. He is currently sitting 8th overall in a position that he will probably be quite pleased with on his comeback Dakar.
Maybe a bit of a way to go for HRC, but it only looks like tweaking and with the volume of data and experienced gained this last two weeks things should be positive.
Pyn in at 38th at 12 only 44 mins down, so a solid run there and a short stage to achieve his goal of finishing, - will be so pleased for him after his flirt with a potential DNF yesterday.
Last day tomorrow 1,2,3 looks set, but anything can still happen
