Can Caselli continue to lead or does he have to help Faria?

Having faith that the front wheel won't fall off can have that effect.

Caselli started well behind him in 18th today and is charging from the pack.....I'm sure if he sees a team member in trouble he will stop.

On piste he's in a good position to attack, Jakes is 3 mins ahead so he can charge on.

Clinging hard to my family, having a tough time controlling my emotions like a normal grown man would at times. Giving lots of long hard hugs to my kids. Probably not enough long hugs to my wife :).

But then the Dakar comes along and I get to follow a bunch of people I don't know, struggling mightily every day. One of them walking in the dunes right now, 1:33 AM in Chile, pushing a 150cc bike for crying out loud. A guy who probably hasn't slept more than 4 hours a night since early January, and keeps going. Watching one of them who we know well after many heartbreaking failures, telling his wife on a satphone that he's just too old for this after getting run down by a truck. Another, with no expectations, making a top ten finish and then a few days later repairing a potentially race ending failure with zip ties and liquid steel. All the while taking his time to call in to his friends and report every night. A young gal, one of only two on bikes and back of the pack, stopping to help other riders when nobody else would. Another guy, a star, stopping to help a mid pack rider with a broken leg, and then that rider going out of his way to show appreciation from a hospital bed in a foreign country. A snippet from the wife of a rider, relating how her husband was breaking down because he missed his little girl's first day of school. And a million other human stories in this contrived, yet very real drama.

And then... the massive community of people supporting them, shouting for them, scrounging around on the internet looking for scraps of information because this huge, human enterprise, in one of the most spectacular areas of the world, isn't big enough news to be given more than a few minutes in the middle of the night. Providing high end analysis based on years of following racing and for some many years of actual racing. Building sophisticated tracking software and sharing it for free instead of sleeping. Juggling a family and running interviews for the F5 crew, and then soliciting funds so the riders aren't burdened by internationally sized phone bills. Finding a tire mousse for a kid who has nothing but still managed to get there. Finding and communicating information for hungry fans and worried friends and spouses. Postulating endlessly on why this person is 10 minutes late and that 10 minutes early. Cheering foreign TV streamed on a small laptop screen and screaming when the deadly "snooker" appears.

It's an interesting deal and one that I simply can't fathom why isn't a BIGGER deal in this country. I'm very glad to be part of it, even if barely hanging on after another 11 hour work day. Thanks a bunch you guys and gals, it's going to be weird when it's over. Now, time to do my workout (ugh), get to bed, and do it all over again...
Love this!!! Agree!

A few (hundreds of) pages ago there was also some information on the ASO'les not very promotive of the whole Malle Moto thing due to the lack of support during the marathon stage before rest day. I remember reading some comments also mentioning that this year the M designation on the stickers was missing from the Malle Moto bikes.

I checked several known malle moto riders profiles on the Dakar website and in all of their profile description, the word Malle Moto makes a prominent appearance but in Manuel's case it does not. They only say his assistance is from the trucks carrying spare parts. Not sure if they mean his "box" carrying the tools and spares as a MAlle Moto entrant ?

in any case, its the aSO'les website and the information presentation/data entry is so inconsistent that i was tearing my hair out after a few minutes.

So, we are back to square one. Is Manuel Malle Moto or not ?

Either way Chaleco 2nd
Faria 3rd.

KTM 1,2,3....

Just not all factory riders, Makes Chaleco's ride even more impressive.
