in the old days (three or four years ago... ) we f5 nerds would sit around bashing the keyboards pontificating over every single frameshot of the eurosport show... in the most minute detail... what sort of front hub was Fretigné running on the 2 trac Yamaha... could you spot the fresh rubber on Comas bike at CP 3 after the nutralization... was that new nail polish Annie was sporting... what were the control officials signing off Annies route card sporting... that kind of thing.

Now it's TV4, Fr2, ES1 and a half dozen latin american extravaganza's...

ahhhh but for the good ol' daze again...

Now its visual information overload,

Very quiet innit? Early days yet though. Dipping in occasionally (which is all I can muster this year) makes me appreciate the full factory effort I was fortunate enough to enjoy last year.

Just like Le Dakar is adapting to the corporate jet setter crowd things change, some good some bad..I do think the new streaming video is good, just love it when all the messages start popping Fr2 is ON!! Eurosport2 ON in 10!! adds another dimension to the experience, This is my first attempt a following it all, I only caught on the last few days last year following Ned's thread to the end..Never even seen the f5irehose

Barreda's dream ends

He had everything planned to the fifth stage. Then came new plans and goals. Everything seemed to go smoothly: nailed his goals being the tenth ranked in the first stage: short, a snack, went out among the former, but not in the lead, the second day and that allowed him to quickly close the gap and win the stage, the same made on the fourth day, but the day before had been something more to break the spokes of the wheel and went further back than expected, but he continued to surprise, daring, fast. In the fifth stage, the more enduro, the more technical, which is said goodbye to the dunes momentarily and welcomed miss roads and land harder, all plans were ruined.

Barreda fuel pump broke his at kilometer 40 of a special 136, a short timed, which speaks volumes about the difficulty of the terrain. The Spanish, one of the biggest names in the beginning of this rally, reached the last checkpoint three hours after the first, David Casteu, and just behind teammate Matt Fish, who gave him a hand to complete the stage. So Barreda, winner of two stages, says goodbye to his title options. Frenchman Olivier Pain Yamaha leads the overall thanks to his consistency and challenge his compatriot Cyril Despres, third place and the favorite.

"I could not move forward, towards the end we suffered a lot. Fish had a fuel pump, but would not have solved anything, "recounted the Barreda, who believes that the problem derives from Wednesday when he suffered the accident two days earlier:" By going with broken spokes and wheel side by side I think it broke the tank, "he said, his face still dirty, full of dust, exhausted after more than five hours of a terrible job. They had to push his bike for almost 100 miles and another 275 special liaison to the bivouac: "We were taking turns, dragging as we could, we have fallen several times and have come out a little from the path to find an easier way without forgetting go through all the obligatory passage points "he recalled.

Throughout the year I have not had any mechanical problems and now I have been the only in the team with problems
And hurt by the missed opportunity: "Now the race is already lost. And you have to learn and analyze what happened. We are still in an upward, both the team and myself. The pity is that in all the years I've had no mechanical problems and now I have been the only in team with problems. I've had bad luck. " Confess it will cost to ride the bike on Thursday: "Now you remember the work done throughout the year and you realize that everything is going to hell in a moment. But had a hard time getting here, so you have to follow. " From now on, he says, is to get to Santiago and take advantage of what is to gain experience and help fellow Botturi Gonçalves and to get into the top 5. "And if I can pull, open track someday and take risks in terms of navigation, I will take" ditch thinking ahead.
