It's hard to believe it's only been four stages, but they've been some of the toughest opening stages on any edition of the Dakar to date. After a marathon 700+km day, we catch up with Lyndon Poskitt for an interactive interview, featuring special guest, and Lyndon's dear friend, Ned Suesse (of 2012 RallyRAIDio fame). Grab a beer (or coffee, depending on when you listen to this) and sit back as we catch up on Lyndon's rally, and listen to Ned and Lyndon compare notes on their experiences.

Thanks, Lyndon, and thanks Ned for joining us. It's great to have you back on RallyRAIDio!

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 ...

Joan Barreda Bort is currently fourth in front of Cyril Despres and “Chaleco” (1'01" behind Casteu) and Alessandro Botturi (who trails the leader by 1'02").

Could it be a part of a tactical plan?

Only these six competitors have so far completed 67 km of the stage.

Seems that if you can finish 4-8th on the day, but with a small time margin, that's the best spot to be in tactically. The first 10 riders start at 2min intervals, so if you start 5th, you're 10min behind the guy opening the stage. Even if you end up finishing physically 2 min behind him, you've made 8minutes on race time.

12:01 - bike

020 - Svitko and Pedrero Garcia butt in

The two bikers have just moved in between David Casteu (37" ahead of them) and Alessandro Botturi (1'05" behind the stage leader), into second and third place as a result.

Glad to see Don is still "part" of the rally. Much better than ending up in the hospital as in years past!



Pain is in at WP3.
