Does anyone know if Andrew Scott is still residing in Canada? I believe he was living in Toronto prior to his previous Dakar attempt (2010?)

In years gone by, Glen Hoffmann has stated that Safari bikes are built from OEM parts, but not necessarily current model parts. For example, I seem to recall the 08 bikes were built with pistons from the 05 model. I don't have any specifics on the Dakar bikes, though you would assume what has served them well for reliability in the past would carry over to the Dakar bikes.

What could Robby have in that Hummer that could fix JC's Honda??

If they found out JC was broke down and HRC gave Robby parts to drop off is that ok??
Damn. Lost 4 hrs +. At least JC isn't out of the race.

In Safari, just click on the one you want to watch below:

Eurosport1 is

http://esioslive2-i.akamaihd.net/hls...list_1800.m3u8

Eurosport2 is

http://esioslive2-i.akamaihd.net/hls...list_1800.m3u8

France2 is

http://chunk-output-1.live.tv-radio....x/1040/02.m3u8

France4 is

http://chunk-output-1.live.tv-radio....x/1300/02.m3u8


It should open a new tab in Safari, and there you go, good stuff to watch.

I recommend opening the first one, make sure it works, bookmark it, close that tab, open the next, etc... so that when you get the word that there's coverage on xxxx, you can just click in and go.



I'm gonna go to bed a little less stupid tonight.


Huge THANK YOU!

Not sure if we'll hear from Pyn tonight, will probably depend on how his prep is going (and phone reception). If I hear from him, you all will, too.

Hoping to arrange another interactive interview before the end of the week.

Live from the Dakar bivouac, having an awesome dinner with the spanish team Pedrega that is assisting 3 venezuelan riders and 1 colombian. They are helping me so much and i want to thank them all for letting me be part of the team!!! Pedrega brought a nice good ham so here we are, the bivouac is really magic!!! Ps. I want to thank also Simon Pavey for giving me some of his used (they are practically new) mousse for the next stages!!!

Last bike update for anyone was 1730L. In the cars @ 1750L.

They're on the same time zone as us (EST), so I wonder if the tracking is fubar.

From Rally Raid Canada about Don Hatton 150

Hit by a truck in the dark. Bike broken in two. No GPS. Stuck out in the dark. People are with him. He can barely talk. Afraid he might have broken his leg. 12 miles from the end of the Special.
