I agree, but I bet Ned never thought he'd be the #2 American rider in the freaking DAKAR!

"Devastating news. Jonah is out of the race.

Mechanical problems for Jonah Street

The American has ground to a halt after 234 km and has signalled that he cannot repair his Yamaha alone. It looks likely that he may have to abandon the race…"

Lawrence Hacking towed another rider when he did his 1st Dakar on a bike.

Can The Ned go back and get him after he's checked into the last WP?

but towing a bike through dunes would be tough. If they hit the button, it's game over isn't it?

You can talk to ASO without putting yourself out of the race. (Green button if I remember) Blue button to call for assistance for another rider, then the blue button again once you are able to carry on. The red button for assistance for yourself etc. I know Tony (Schattat) will know the sequence. They will call you if you suddenly stop or are stopped for some time. It is only if you press the emergency button that your race is done.
