That second part is not true. The ICO can be configured to show 99.99 instead of 999.9.

How long does it take to find the spark plug lead?

Such bullshit from HRC


Wiregate? Fuelgate?




I love a conspiracy rumor.

Mischa!!! You da'man! Now I can pass the torch! (if yoou find the space, please add the penalties Like "Despres (15:00)" So we can figure who changed engine already. Other than that the graph is great and it really helps me to gather how the race is developing. I wouldn't bother much with color matching the bar with the brand of motorcycle - I try to do that but always have to duplicate or something. Thank's a lot for implementing this!!!

michal or Troy, can any of you tell me what was a lady's best stage result at Dakar? It was prolly Andrea Mayer in 2002 but I'm unable to access my Dakar literature this week... I am trying to establish if Laia's 11'th (?) at the 8th stage is historycal

About the Aprilia caption on Chaleco - they also keep saying the Orlando Pendejo's navigator (Paulo Fiuza) is ARGentinian, although he's Portuguese .

Thanks for the pic Michal - I wonder if they've ground "KTM" off the engine cases as they did with the Yamahas ?

The (one) kitted EXC they ran in '11 still had KTM on the cases.

Right, and he also made some major mistakes - navigational - early on. Navigation is simply a matter of experience; there is no shortcut to learn what the roadbook author means by any of the symbols, and with the ASO, it seems as though they are consistent but they still take a big learning curve.

I never, ever doubted Caselli's speed or ability on the bike - I have seen him ride firsthand, and I have never heard anyone run a bike so hard so smoothly. But, navigation is an entirely different beast and it will be his only shortcoming for the time being. Perhaps he will master it this year, but it has already cost him to much to make up.

Don't get me wrong - the only thing I was pointing out before was that any Baja winner would still have a lot to learn coming to Dakar. Each day of the Dakar is like the Baja 500 with no coursemarkers and many other variables that would never appear in Baja.

Oh it's definitely different....no argument here on that point.

For a guy that's just learning nav he opened course today on a section that some vets had trouble with....like Chaleco.
