CdP (The Alien) is going to come out fighting today, make up his time, blow others away with his form and take the lead.
He will do similar tomorrow and stamp his authority on the motos.

The others will be left wondering WTF just happened?

(I have no clue about what todays stage is like or tomorrows stage but I wouldn't be surprised if he has some intel about the course, the weather etc)

Not 5:39 at wp4, that's overall.

2:53 between wp3/wp4. And Dakar.com said Casteu stopped for a bit.

Challeco Lopez iz +00:06:38 at CP2 but not showing at WP3.
Either a tracker error or he lost a lot.

He's making it look too easy, ALIEN MODE ENGAGED!

Good catch on Lopez, let's hope the gps went fubar, although he was probably taking all sorts of risks to keep up from that far back and I'm a bit worried...

I agree that he has to make his mark today.

If he doesn't make an alien jump... then the mental game just got way harder. More for him than his competitors.

No, I'm pretty sure that's stage time... ? 5.39 faster into WP4 than David, and listed as starting 9 minutes behind him today

We're saying the same thing, I just added the sector data.

Most folks running where he had been never get a clear day, always there are slower riders ahead, dust, etc that limits your pace at some point during the day. I don't think he'll have that particular issue today!

And the better conditions that come with an early start seem to pay off. He's +12'12" at CP2, solidly around 45th position. He used to run in the mid-50s before rest day.

Great catch. I don't recall, was Pyn running a high fender at his UK events?
