Talking Virtual DAKAR 101

Huge respect for these guys, especially the backmarkers, WOW!
Me too... it was fun to watch Lopez "leading" Coma and Despres thru the stage yesterday...

Bluhduh Tough stage!

Yah... bad stage for me today as well Started with a 'pooter screen wot sez "insert system disc." Great! A couple of hours of utilities and stuff got things back to working again. Dunno for how long, though.. we are getting late in the race but the HD may not last. Marathon Class... no swapsies Once running.. faced with over a thousand posts to read so Waaaaaay behind the pack already
After a short but determined effort to make up time on the leaders, the washing machine quit (after 20 years) shoulda changed the motor as a precaution at the rest day So several hours out of the day finding a new machine and doing the swap and getting back into the race.

Finally.. I have made it to the Biv, only to be faced with going out again in a few minutes

Right... onwards through bleeding eyes and sore finger (f5) to the next stage.

Cheers to all those who built the thousand posts and the info contained within

Regarding missing waypoints, timing WP's and WPM's:

There are a lot of waypoints on the GPS's for the pilots to pass by. The ones harder to find are the WPM's. These are the ones which the GPS will only direct to if the rider is in a vicinity of 800 meters.

AFAIK, the timing waypoints ASO gives us F5'ers (WP1, WP2...) are just timing aids to allow us to follow the race live and have nothing to do with the WPM the pilots have to search.

A pilot having clocked all timing waypoints just means his Iritrack has worked all the time and that he was on the correct track at the timing place.

A pilot that doesn't show WP's times may have colected all the WPM's and won the stage.

And a pilot who has shown all WP's timing may have missed a WPM and get a penalty in the end. I believe that was the case of Faria who got 2h penalty on stage 11.

ASO collects the data from each pilot's GPS on arrival to the bivvy, and only then it is known who missed WP , who speeded and so on.

If she is racing for the win in the ladies class what choice does she have.
When the "other" girls get stuck they have someone to pull them out/ fix there bikes/ tow them to the finish.

She is a legend but others have more help

Yes! Stuff like this should get compiled into a ReadMe/FAQ/Viewer's Guide that is referenced at the beginning of the thread.



Thanks!
