Maybe he stopped, waited for Cyril and after 2 minutes said "Oh fuck the old codger" and continued.

He was running in the back of the field and after struggling through the past stages, running in the back of the field and having had a 24hr riding day he came up on the final fuel stop to find it empty.

The gastrucks had left and there was no other option for him then to join the recovery truck.

The Red Lantern has now been passed on to Luis on his KTM 150cc 2 stroke.

Go Luis!!

Made the piste, just not fast enough. I sympathize. Valiant effort!

The only logical explanation on Cyril, barring mechanical issues, is that his bike has been jetted lean on purpose for the higher altitude, and he is being careful with the engine? It looks like a really fast stage today

edit : after looking at the stage profile, scratch that theory. whole stage is between 3500 to 4000m

This stage is FAST. Most overtaking posssibility are before Wp2, with some navigation. Half way to Wp3 it goes to a rough double track that follows a spectacular valley. At times this track is very fast with badly rutted and washed away section that may catch the unaware, but at other times its is very bad with numerous stream crossings, lots of rocks. Near the end there is a diversion up another road that takes the rides well above 3,300m again, before a descent back to the main road down a what looks to be a very rough river bed.

Noteworthy is that the bike will not have any opportunity for assistance after the special, the last time they can see an assistance truck is just before the SS.

Here you go.

My long section (bear in mind altitude is very smoothed on Google earth and therefore much less precise)


Their Long section - close enough.

Their map (decidely imprecise)


Our map (blue Liaison/assistance routes, Red for the Special) Not many other options availible unless they are off piste. I think its reasonably close.


Zoom in on the first part of the stage


Aerial view looking South east from the Ass towards the finish


Some photo from the area:
On the way to Wp1


Between Wp2 & 3 (it may be a little wet at this time of year)


View of the 2nd half of the SS


The final loop up to altitude in the WP5 area


Aerial view back toward the DSS from the ASS. There route might cut a loop earlier over the second ridge on the right, but I could not find a track there. Old photo maybe.


Some pics of the valley descent

Near the top 3,800m




On the loop near Wp5


Final descent to ASS
