Quick update on Don Hatton

This post came through which set off a series of "oh, crap" posts...

...but then this added a little hope and perspective that it may not be completely lost.

Long story short lets keep our fingers crossed. He is not out of the race yet. When he gets to the bivioac and gets cleared medically then the big question is whether or not they can make the bike ridable for tomorrow. We will let everyone know once we know.

Thank to all the ADV Riders out there for your support. Lets keep "positive vibes" for Don !!

Cheers

Question You ain't seen nothin' yet... SS4...?!

Not too bad, its only 1,000m high....



The cars and trucks have to go down further to the left on a route that is 1km longer and half as steep - which is still pretty freaking steep.

Still working on the route, but in between the ergs it looks like old rocky, winding mining tracks that eventually drop down to a lovely green valley in the desert.




The 2nd erg is not as steep but its a climb that will test the spirits of but the best dune riders.

The 3rd erg is the hardest, with a another huge descent into a gulley from hell, similar to the one at Fiambala. The special stage ends after they can make it out of the gulley.

Then they have a nice winding coastal route to relax on for about 200km before another series of long, hot, boring strights to the bivouac.

This day I think will be the toughest Peru has to offer.
cue maps etc. to Day 4:

The route will be slightly different for the cars and the motorcycles, which will have to visit the three refuelling points in their road books. One of them comes 173 km into the special. They'll also tackle a 2 km slide downhill in the first third of the special. All in all, another momentous stage in this rally. The big favourites Despres, Peterhansel, De Rooy and Patronelli (most of them winners in 2012) took the lead on Monday, but their margins are still small and there's no doubt that Tuesday will be a very eventful day.

Today's stage SS4: Nazca->Arequipa





I'm seeing 8 waypoints and probably 2 checkpoints, although they aren't listed (yet) on the manual tracker list.

With the refuel point aka HondaHeaven at KM173, we can expect a 15 minute neutralization stop.

Early start for the bikes today at 0545 local. It's now , so they're off in an hour.

Today's tracker links:

Mischa's tracker
Mischa's monitor
(Please conserve bandwidth on the above links, close tabs when not in use, easy on the F5ing!)

Dakar.com live tracker
Dakar.com manual tracker and CP list.

how do the top ten lay up tactic's today?

Chaleco leads out today, with Despres two spots back in Pos 3., but holding @ 3 min lead o/a to the Chilebean who is 2nd currently. If Despres puts a bead on Lopez in the opening 19 to 40 kms (some tough dunes)... he can track the two wheel tracks ahead, then he picks up effectively 7 minute buffer total on Chaleco and can control him from behind.

Keep an eye out you f5 WP hunters at the 39 km mark... where the moto course diverts from the auto route (remember Coma's boo boo out front in argentina a couple years back, where the course did similar... went wrong way for a bit and handed CDP the upper glove? )

There could be a degree of confusion in the 39 to 51 km sector, where it's MOTO only route (technical?) and looks like they drop off the face of the planet to rejoin the course proper!

Pål Anders Ovenwoolmittens is in third spot overall and only 5 minutes off CDP outright lead. With a start pos of 10, today he is the last of the two minute start gap riders, and if he manages his day well, is optimally placed to pick off five or six riders, which will translate to another top five stage result and strengthen his title bid. he like tough days as well... as his Swedish neighbours would say; "en seg jävel...!"

Similarly Oliver growing Pains in 4th overall on the Yamaha... has a good opportunity today to stamp his name on something, along with yamaha colleagues Casteau and Verhoven (although probably a little tender after yesterdays boulder bowling session). I Yamaha make a move today, THEY could be the ones to take it to KTM and keep the pressure on thru to rest day for remainder of week one...

Viladoms also - the hopes of husqvarna lie with their "best customer" (in 8th general classification currently 9 minutes off Cyrils lead) and Botturi in 11th only two minutes further back in overall terms.

After the intitial pummeling in the first 80 km's... things settle down (relatively speaking) from @ the 110 km mark through to CP/fuel at 233 km...

Then 12 km after the restart (fuel zones are a fifteen minute nutralization where riders only can fuel/re-water themselves... no outside service) is a BIG F5-ing uphill!!!

Then the ASS at 288 km... who will have theirs handed to them today...?

Tune in to f5 broadcasting and f5ind the f5¤% out...!

Stage Three – Pisco to Nazca – 328 KM

Team Delta Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK suffers some bad luck in a difficult and dangerous stage three as the race makes it’s way toward the famous city of Nazca.


Stage three proved to be another difficult stage, with big dunes, soft sand and fesh fesh causing many of competitor’s problems over the stage. The seemingly short day of 280km proved to be deceivingly difficult.

Despite the nature of the stage, Simon had another steady day as he rode within himself to take 69th place on the stage. Uncomfortable with a lot of the terrain during the stage Simon elected to take the cautious approach as the stage was littered with hidden holes and steep dunes.

However, Canadian Don Hatton was involved in a freak incident. Working through the difficult sands of the stage Don was involved in an incident with a truck that saw some damage to his bike. The incident appeared to have damaged his gear selector, leaving him with difficulty changing gear. Don struggled on through the difficult riding attempting to nurse his bike to end of the special stage but the selector finally stopped choosing gear just 4km from the end of the special. Despite hours of trying to get out of the sand, his bike stuck in neutral, and attempting to convince the organisers to tow him the last part of the stage Don was forced to retire at 1:00 am local time.

Simon Pavey – “Today was tough again, some of the riding was technical, more so then we have had so far. I wasn’t comfortable to ride fast today at all, I really took my time. I stopped twice for a few minutes to fix a problem with my hydration pack as well and on Dakar stopping for just a few minutes costs you 20 places.

The terrain on the stage was treacherous again today, there were lots of hidden dangers out there and it was the type stage that could easily bite you. I was lucky to be relatively near the front of the race today too, there was a chunk of fesh fesh toward the end of the stage, but when I got there I was still able to pick a clean line and ride on the crust.

Once again my bike felt really good, I’m finding it strange to have a bike that’s so good for racing, it’s much more than I’ve had in rally’s before and because it wants to be raced it can be a little tiring. It’s a new style of Dakar that has developed over the last couple of years; it takes some adjusting to get used too. The rally still hasn’t really begun yet though, we’ve got eleven days left so we’ll just take each day as it comes.”

Stage four of the Dakar is the first long stage of the race, made up of a tough 288km special stage followed by a gruelling 429km liaison to reach the town of Arequipa.



Stage Three Results.

70. Simon Pavey – 03:26:11

Don Hatton – Retired

Overall Standings.

56. Simon Pavey – 07:29:56

Don Hatton – Retired

Wp2 -WP3 After a huge descent the riders follw a river bed onto a sandy track tanking them into another dune field which they have to climb, if they go too far right here they will will find themselves cut off between a slop too steep to climb and a big drop of down another huge (500M+) dune slope, If they make it they get to Wp3

Wp3-Cp1 follows a mountain track, very rough at first.but taking them down almost tosea level again.

The final dunes section is going to be the most technical thoughwithsteep up and downhills to negotiate.

Hope it helps!!

Short mid-stage SS4 update:
Lots of tracker confusion, at WP3 Barreda seems to be flying again at an unbelievable pace, leading the Hondas of Farres Guell and Pizzolito (HRC). David Casteu in 4th.

Yesterday's leaders Despres, Goncalves and Lopez are way back. Cyril in provisional 20th position almost 10 minutes behind.

Helder Rodrigues is in 7th +7 minutes. There's a mid-stage refuel stop today, so the HRC bikes won't have to run conservatively.
