Helder, yesterday:

Helder Rodrigues SS4 5th +11’43”, 16th in the Overall: "I’m pleased with today’s stage. My bike worked well and I was able to gain valuable positions and close the gap with the front riders a little. I started 23rd and there was a lot of dust and fech fech at the beginning but then I started to push and I’m happy with the result.Tomorrow I aim to continue like this and climb some more positions in the overall standing. Dakar is a special race and many unforeseen events may happen, so it’s important to maintain the concentration and avoid mistakes, especially in the navigation”.

12 (16) 003 - RODRIGUES Helder (PRT) HONDA +00:25:58

4 positions are gone,
Go Helder Go

Peterhansel took 4'30 out of Al Attiyah between WP4 and WP5.


Edit, they're in the finish, Peter 4'38 ahead of Nasser. Waiting on the others.

I guess I could have looked it up myself. - But the "Reg.Man" jumped right on it.

This is probably a good time to mention that I miss my girl, Ludvine.






And of course, the Rally Princess, Annie Seel.

He does not say, but Cyril Despres almost regret Marc Coma is not on this Dakar. With his alter ego Spanish KTM, it was an intense fight but with a certain respect.

His face is stained fatigue and anger. Sitting on the edge of his camper in the camp of Arequipa, Cyril Despres did not start to feel old but a gap between the biker of 38 years and his young rival. Designated as favorite single Package Dakar 2013 after his teammate and rival Marc Coma, the French assume only the weight of the race and regrets that other drivers regularly leave him in charge of opening the road to better counter in the last kilometers. "I may be old school but before, when a pilot was opening the track, he was given the victory, he says. Here, when the green arrow is illuminated on the GPS and someone sees the arrival of doubling it cuts both ways limit. '

Elimination race
Despres is annoyed but there is obviously no solution to encourage the best of the pack to guide the flock. "Apart Chaleco who tried, nobody starts. Some do not feel confident enough in navigation. Every time it's the same scenario. They go to five or six and then they have waited for me to do the trace." Faced with the impossibility of creating gaps in the off road tracks, Despres hopes to make a difference in the more technical parts of the rally in Argentina. "I'm not worried, he assures. I feel good physically and now I'm managing. I do not run 100% of my ability." An excellent tactical for an elimination race. But they are still likely to be in the game ...
Very insightful stuff! It's great to be able to read such an honest appraisal.
