PackMule that call was one for the record books, very special. Very nice job with the questions. It was fantastic feeling the excitement in both of your voices.

Pyndon Congratulations Sir!

What a day!

Challenging Stage, Controversy, Conspiracy Theories, Leaders Lost, Floods, and the Firehose was wide open.

Absolute blast.

Caught a good glimpse of Patrick working on CDR's 450 on Eurosport - that was kind of neat.

One thing that I'd like to say, whether you like his racing strategies or not, or the way the camera catches his bandana in the morning light, is that Cyril Despres is NOT an Asshole (as was mentionned in an earlier post).

I had the opportunity to ride with him over the course of a long-weekend, had dinner and beers with him, chatted with him and his girlfriend over morning coffee, and just generally hung-out with him on the trail at rest stops and fuel stops and lunch stops.

All I can say is that if I didn't know he was an international motorcycle racing Alien, I wouldn't have known it by his demeanour. Completely unpretentious, generous with interesting conversation on other topics, and quick with humour - he was basically a good dude to hang with, as much so as any of the other buds I was hanging with that weekend (except he didn't slow us all down like most of my other buds do...ahem).

So, I wouldn't be so quick to judge the entire person, or his overall character by what you see in the media, or by whatever happens in the heat of a race. I don't understand why cheering for one person means you have to assisinate the character of another person based on what you see in of all places...on the internet!

Anyway...that's my $0.02 FWIT.

(BTW - I'm also not about to judge Marc Coma as an asshole either by what I see of his racing strategies, or of this public relations machine either...)



(rant off)

Hopefully I can get Pat to put a crow-bar in his schedule to call RallyRaidio tomorrow for some updates.

Ha Ha - some of us are starting a new day - Sunday here and first day of the working week -

Well, not too bad during our sleeping and US waking hours – well I mean only 45 mins. to catch up, but as ever eventful and reading the changing scene of information and speculation over a 6 hour period is fasciGATING
What is for sure though is that the speculation and on the ground rule review and decision making will thank this for being the rest day.

Rain – well, from personal experience and I am sure that of others also – you just do not take on a rising flood river, especially one in areas where you get flash floods from rain falling elsewhere – you can be half way across when you say hello to a wall of water and bye bye – you just don’t do it!
Sensibility and safety (as much as you can on the Dakar without affecting the event) needs to adopted here and the playing field needs to be considered level for all – but this is always going to spark controversy and discussion – Nasser for example seems to be benefiting from being an ASS and just f*****g up – he should pay the penalty for this not get away with it!
Anyhow as the day opens up it will all be confirmed as to what is going to happen and to who.

Engine swop – illegal? Well the ASO rep on the ground gave it the thumbs up – now they are going to look pretty dam stupid to now say “sorry we were wrong, you are f****d Cyril” not to mention the dusting off of the guillotine back home for whoever made the original decision.
Rules & contracts/agreements – well they are not really there to be broken or manipulated as are often the common thoughts, but they are to be interpreted with the events and circumstances that arise when not specifically covered within them and in a fair and reasonable manner within the intent of the overall document
Engine swop practical – well it was clearly written assuming that you could swop the engine – i.e in the bivouac when one was available – what they didn’t consider what would happen if you needed an engine change on the marathon day, when you couldn't swop it – well they they supposed you couldn’t, so up shit creek without the proverbial paddle.
Only they didn’t consider the resourcefulness of the event and that there could be an option?
Still, strictly not within the rules, but the circumstances may not have been either?!
Next year expect to see a new rule – “engine swop on Marathon day”
Rest day for us also – may get to the gym after work today, bloody need to after the last week, both the gut and the neck are begining to feel it.
Looking forward to the results of yesterday's chaos and certainly as to how the next days are going to develop - the last few Dakars - two riders within 10 mins or so - the third and hour back and the rest after that. We still (depending on any descions made today) have 17 within that first hour!

Ric - anyone know why Helder got 15mins penalty - has he changed the HRC engine for one that uses less fuel
