Question What's wrong with the stat's ASO'les...?

Like Troys summary a lot and a masive help to all as an obligatory aid - but nothing like the real F5ing

Another wow day coming up and with a 429km special - nearly equal to SS2 and SS3 together, god only knows what is going to happen - although I feel there will be 1 or 2 on here who may be close -

Queue for Troy ------

It's not really your fault old timer , but you have it arse backwards...

Can someone wander down to the ASO graphics/statistics dept. and smack some froggy up the side of the melon... this is getting beyond ridiculous...

The graphic profile and map overview clearly show that the special is first at 289 km, then a liason of 429 km's.

From ASO site:

The drivers and riders will face 720 kilometres in the next few hours in what will be the longest stage since the start of the 2013 Dakar. The difficulty goes up a notch. This stage is a beefed-up version of the one that was run in the opposite direction in 2012, wreaking pure havoc. The route will be slightly different for the cars and the motorcycles, which will have to visit the three refuelling points in their road books. One of them comes 173 km into the special. They'll also tackle a 2 km slide downhill in the first third of the special. All in all, another momentous stage in this rally. The big favourites Despres, Peterhansel, De Rooy and Patronelli (most of them winners in 2012) took the lead on Monday, but their margins are still small and there's no doubt that Tuesday will be a very eventful day.

Totally confused Vicks had that, but on the Dakar site for stage 4 we have:-

Although the red 8 WP line from Nazca is much shorter the the green line to Arequipa - sounds like the bloody metro

BTW GHR OEM parts in a 450 CRF X, yes all oem, 450R piston, 450R Camshaft etc etc.

All for more power. But the top guys need that to keep up, the aussies will mature into Dakarista. Possibly true aliens, but then aussies are already wierd. Mel Gibson doesnt really need to act in some of his movies, tin foil hat an all.

I dont know why we are even bothered to be surprised at the ASO'les ( Troy for the new nickname) way of screwing up data on their site....

Evening all.

Best Dakar ever.

Noticed the F5irehose truck to late today. Bowled over big time.

Day 4. -
The Desert fox will consolidate.
The aussies will brain it.
Troy's of piste manoeuvring is very impressive. I see him clearing out to the rest day.
Doyle's put in a very tradesman's effort. Solid, consistent, reliable.
Bluebull, excellent recovery. Solid rebuild through the pack.
misc, need I say more.
dread, impressive out of the blocks.
nate, awesome, as per.
ned,
ted, excellent solid performance.

For the rest of the F5'ers new and old. Excellent effort. ADV is singularly the BEST resource out there, bar none.

My only remaining concern is we are not even close the rest day.
Can the noobs survive and make the final ASS??

Incredible noise from inside the truck. Would want to have some very effective ear plugs.
Interesting view of Sainz's GPS "failure" too.

What skills at my age reading the simple numbers should be what it's all about and if I was French they would compensate

It seems like there a few of these deliberate ploys on the schedule - just as well HRC arn't fuelling up for the 429k special then

Westy still in it. 51, got 31 places to drop to get to my prediction.

Seb has 50% to drop, currently in 2nd, top podium step for him, i hope.

Sad to say Troy, I'm more inclined to listen to Robbie's version, bearing in mind El Rollador's antics over the years
