Dean 1st in experts after day 1.

Do Pro's and experts ride the same loop?

On the 1st day the experts did ride some of the pros course, Dean mentioned he passed a number of them.
I think they are usually different?

Looks like he is still in the lead after day two.

25mins ahead of Van den Goorbergh (the ex GP rider, and I'm pretty sure he did a couple of Dakars, but that could have been in a buggy).

Not sure he was a GP rider... pretty sure he was a Motard champ though..? Either way it means he is pretty talented on a bike.

Dean has to be seen to be believed. I have never seen anyone look so inactive on a bike while riding over stuff that you would never imagine even trying!

Cheers Scotty

From Wiki so it might only be partly true..

Like the fact that I'm pretty sure he was 2nd best finishing rookie in his first Dakar...



Quote:
Jurgen van den Goorbergh (born December 12, 1969 in Breda, Netherlands) is a Dutch motorcycle road racer also known as The Flying Dutchman.[1]
Van den Goorbergh won the Dutch 250cc road racing national championship in 1991.[2] He began his Grand Prix career in 1991 in the 250cc class. In 1997 he moved up to the 500cc class racing a privately sponsored Honda. MuZ hired him to race for them in the 1999 season and in 2001, he raced for the Kenny Roberts-Proton team. The 2002 season did not start off well for van den Goorbergh, scoring only 21 points in first 10 races. At the end of season he made his best result in Australian Grand Prix, finished on 5th place only three hundredth of a second behind third Tohru Ukawa.
From 2003 to 2005, van den Goorbergh raced in the Supersport World Championship. He is considered an expert in wet racing. In the wet 2005 Chinese Grand Prix at Shanghai, van den Goorbergh substituted for the injured Makoto Tamada. He began from in 19th position and finished a respectable 6th place for the Konica Minolta Honda team.
In 2006 and 2007 van den Goorbergh did not join a road racing team, but tested MotoGP tyres for Michelin. He raced in the European Enduro Championships, the Dutch trial Championships and in Supermoto competitions. He competed in the Dakar Rally for the first time in 2009 - finishing 17th and best rookie that year. In 2010 Jurgen competed in Dakar again, this time with a buggy and did not finish. In 2010 Jurgen has competed in several events and is preparing himself for the 2011 Dakar - again with a buggy.
He pulled another 13mins today but aparently there may be peniltys involed because he may have followed the pro course for a while acording to Van Den Goorbergh anyway.

Juergen v d Goorberg at the finish

He seemed in great spirits, said he had one it two off route moments and followed the pro track for a short while before realising and turning back to the expert track but thinks Dean his rival for first in the expert class didn't realise and may have followed the pro section. I guess the GPS will tell more about that, as if so, time penalties might be involved?

Overall results haven't been released yet but it looks as if Dean got a 15 min penilty, so he only lost 2 mins to Van Den Goorbergh and should still retain the lead in Experts by 23min.

A navigational error on day 3 sent Dean onto the pro course and from what I can understand he still got the best time of the experts having ridden pro.
