It's also convenient that someone else makes electrical bits and HRC builds fault proof motors.

OK, that wire story is strange, to say the least. Good to see I'm not the only one who smells bullshit. Especially as the info with the fuel problem came from someone close to the team.

Does anyone know why they riders all black out the hundreths place on the roadbook and have their ICOs configured to only display tenths? Hard to understand why they would deliberately obfuscate information available to them...

How long does it take to find the spark plug lead?

Such bullshit from HRC
neither jc or pizzolito stopped to give helder some fuel as pizzolito did the last time. So there's maybe some true in it. As
Katsumi Yamazaki put it
"It’s a pity but Dakar may be like this.”

Fiambala, the January 16th, 2013

Although the 11th special was again affected by the weather, American Kurt Caselli obtained a 2nd stage victory on the Dakar, whilst general standings leader Cyril Despres further increased his lead. In the car race, the special was stopped after only 53 km, following flash flooding that prevented the competitors from crossing a river on the route of the stage. This was a Godsend for Robby Gordon who picks up his 1st win on the Dakar 2013 as a result, whilst in the truck race De Rooy should be granted the victory. The situation has not led to any changes in the general standings, with Peterhansel and Nikolaev still leading their respective categories.

Caselli at the double, Despres at ease. On the 11th special stage, shortened by 30 km due to the delicate state of the start following bad weather during the last few days over the region of Fiambala, Kurt Caselli again proved that he has not just replaced Marc Coma by chance. Having started fifth, the American took advantage of the sand made more stable by the last few days’ rainfall, to show his power and skill on Baja types of terrains. The outcome was a 2nd stage victory on his first Dakar for the newcomer nicknamed “Special K”, 4’45 ahead of Paulo Gonçalves and 6’24 in front of Cyril Despres. Despite a small navigational error at the start of the stage, the title holder nevertheless made up for it by the end and strengthened his leading position in the general standings. He now leads team-mate Ruben Faria by 13’16" and "Chaleco" Lopez, who finished the stage in 5th place after losing his bearings somewhat toward the end of the stage, by 18’08”. Finally, following a serious fall 50 km from the finishing line, Spaniard Joan Barreda injured his shoulder and is not sure of being able to start tomorrow.

They don't need such small increments and the trip meter doesn't show it, anyway.
