Patrick Beaulé - Dakar Stage 4 Update "Nasca to Arequipa"

St. Bruno, QC, January 8, 2013 – A bit of drama tonight for Patrick and the Aldo Racing/KTM Canada team. After another stellar timed special stage today, finishing in 57th position, Pat's engine developed a serious mechanical problem at the beginning of the 429 km liaison section to Arequipa.
As of this moment 21:30 EST, Pat is currently still out on the 400km liaison, being towed (yes TOWED for 400 kms) by a fellow Italian rider who is himself unfortunately out of the race.
Pat was very well prepared and brought every spare part imaginable except for a complete spare engine (the cost of these complete engines is extremely high), so the team had to scour the bivouac searching for a spare engine to "borrow" for the balance of the event.
Thankfully, the team was able to source a complete spare engine from a Dutch team - the engine was one of two spares for two of their riders who unfortunately withdrew due to injuries. This engine is still on the liaison on the Dutch team’s support truck, and will arrive in the bivouac later tonight.
JF Charlot (the Aldo Racing/KTM Canada Team Mechanic) has his work cut out for him, and Patrick will have to shake off a very long, tiring and stressful liaison section to resume fresh tomorrow!
Pat is currently in 52nd position in the overall standings after four stages.

Racing fans can follow the action with daily updates on Patrick's Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/PatrickBeauleDakar.

Patrick Beaule is one of Canada’s most accomplished off-road motorcycle endurance racing champions. He holds an impressive list of titles: three Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA) National Enduro Pro-class titles; one Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) E1 Pro title; three Off-Road Ontario Provincial Enduro Pro-class titles; and, two prestigious International Six-Days Enduro (ISDE ) silver medals (Chile and New Zealand). In addition to these titles, Beaule has also won the infamous Corduroy Enduro in the Pro-class four times, was 3 times team Pro-class 12-hour endurance event winner in Quebec, and twice Pro-class 24-hour endurace ice-race team winner in Alberta. He is a finisher of the grueling DAKAR rally in 2012, and the 1st ever finishing automotive-class navigator in Canadian history.

Did he have to swap the motor? I don't see the 15 min penalty listed for doing that.

They aren't always real quick on adding those in, to the non-frontrunners.

Guessed maybe that was the case, but as the motor was still 'running' (by last description), I was curious to find out how things went last night under the lights and wrenches.

JF Charlot (the Aldo Racing/KTM Canada Team Mechanic) successfully replaced Patrick’s engine in the night following a mechanical issue that arose on Stage 5’s liaison section, and the subsequent scramble to find a replacement motor.
Patrick was at the starting line at the pre-appointed time of 9:19am EST to begin the relatively short 136km special section for the 5th stage of the Dakar from Arequipa to Arica.

The engine swap allowed Patrick to carry on in the relatively technical and rocky terrain and to run conservatively to a 96th place finish.

Pat is currently in 62nd position in the overall standings after five stages, down from 52nd due in part to the 15-minute penalty levied on the first engine swap.
