ASO is notoriously slow about showing that.

Francisco López started the special at 9:15 am. 346 kilometres await, with a first timed section of 111 km. We'll keep an eye on the gaps between him and his main rival Cyril Despres.

I woke up thinking that Chalecos "chain" mishap and "gearbox" issue have to be related. Maybe he broke his engine case, not his tranny and had no option but to change it out.

was the chain the chicken or the egg?

My bet is that Chaleco is going all out and the others will be obliged to chase!

The "chain" was a quote from radio maray. The reporter that saw Chaleco looking at the bike, maybe got a little confused with all the emotion...

Well maybe not the engine changed, but the engine out, so it looked like a change?

No changes or penalties mentioned on Dakar.com so maybe just another false rumourgate

Also, if a centrifugal pump is cavitating it's not being cooled by fresh fuel and Voila ... burnout.
Also, at high altitude, you need a pushing pump not a sucking pump for fuel transfer. Don't know which they have.

Any speculation on the consequences whilst riding hard, would it appear the have run out of gas?

Wankers at the ASO, so we don't really know how the top guys are placed, any more changes?
