Yup, he seems to be liking the better track position.

Thanks guys, but just to let you all know that was a letter from INGO
He is doing well, we all very impressed with the Quad rider aswell Sarel Van Biljon (the euros say it quite stupidly)

But South Africans have always done well in the Quad divension with a few victorys

I don't care much for Senegal, but ASO's arrogance with regards to the copyright of the Dakar name on You tube, etc kinda has me rooting for the Africans on this one!

Especially interesting in light of the ASO's crusade against any media using the Dakar moniker.

Yup, likewise I'm really impressed by Johnny Campbell's times today. It's as if he was dormant for the first half of the race

What's the hardest part of riding a quad in the Dakar?

You're doing a great job, Flood. I've appreciated it a couple of days that I couldn't keep up during the day.

The engine of Chilean Axel Heilenkotter's Sherco seems to have broken down. Fellow Chilean Josefina Gardulski has come to his aid and is now towing him through the special.

But Pizzolito, who was quickest HRC more than once is down in the 30s. Honda really isn't the shining beacon of reliability and regularity this year.
