Just read that Botturi yesterday fell down on a dune cassée, so explained the 7-8 lost positions, but not the 30' penalty...

left wrong right right?

Photo on the left is from DAKAR in Africa, years ago...The guy standing over him is wearing a Dakar emblem and Marc has Euromilhoes on the top of his number badge...Plus he's wearing the Repsol orange, red, blue on his jacket.

Can't be too bad though, he managed to get the Orange shirt on for the photocall and raise a smile
Hope he is fit for Jan, wouldn't be the same without him

Thought it was a bit quick and he looked rather fresh/ young - but it was on the Internet so it had to be true

Still conflicting info, but hope he is fit and ready for Jan

Just go show that maybe he is human after all if this happened between 50 and 60 kmph - better than 150 - 160 though, no prizes for being in that club!

Those two photo's of the rocks and the speed jolt my memory in a bad way, makes me remember my crash in the 2007 Safari, except i hit the tree and scattered my bike and myself over the rocks at 100 kmh. Had sweaty bad dreams of that day for a long time. Ended up in Halls Creek hospital. Brave brave guys.

Have we ever had 50 pages on this rally before?

For may the sand dunes may seem harder, it is actually easier to push the limits than on the rocky paths, off piste you can miss a turn where as here on the rocky paths its impossible.

Those who love the sand, will be served! Rally is never gone through Cheggaga this way… Enjoy ! Sandy oued on many kilometers towards a Chott fast and Off track towards the dunes. The sandy oued on many kilometers and technical track in the vegetation until the arrival.

as mentioned before,
would ktm be concerned enough about mark being out and possibly not 100% for dakar, to tell my mate cyril to go easy and not risk himself before dakar.???
- essentially step back & let the others fight over this one

It's possible. In the grand scheme, Dakar is the real prize. As exciting as Morocco is, for many, it's a shakedown for Dakar.
