Since he has ran out of gas before, and then just repeated the same mistake twice in one Dakar, then we need Troy to make him a dunce hat, sit him in the corner and blast Barbra Streisand records on the hi fi all day



I cant think it would be fuel left in the bottom of the tank given the very low position of the fuel pump we saw the other day. Unless there outlet pipe from the rear tanks are not at the bottom? Need to have a look at that. If that were the case you could lie the bike down and drain fuel that way, and we have not seen any of that yet.

He ran out of gas once. The second time he didn't, "just" had to go slower to have some to get to the end. We still don't know about what happened yesterday.

the long and short of it is that it's not happening to the others, so it's either something that helder is doing or something in the setup of his bike that is different... either way the problem should have been sorted after the first time it happened....

What did I say about Barreda's Nav skillz?


dakar.com




10:41 - bike

005 - Barreda loses his way a little

After 201 km, the Spanish rider headed a bit too far north and had to turn round. He was in the lead but may be in the process of losing his position to Francisco Lopez.

So Lopez opens the stage? In the frame of mind he's in, he might end up in Peru today
