Shortly after the 338 km mark, Italian Alessandro Botturi's systems have sent out a signal stating he is immobile in the first area of dunes on the Dakar 2014. Slightly too far north in relation to all the other competitors, he may have become the first victim of the grey sands of Nihuil.

Nearing the end of SS2, the trackers are still off. Official reports and Radio Maray suggest that many riders have problems in the dune section near the finish, among them Grabham, Pizzolito, Botturi and even Coma.

Edit: wait, there's more!

After a minor fall, the Bolivian Juan Carlos Salvatierra is currently repairing his motorcycle along with Italian Paolo Ceci. The two men were arrested in an area of ​​dunes along the Chilean Claudio Rodriguez and autralien Shane Diener.

Nice post Ned, indeed the people behind the scenes and the explanation from you, shows the gigantic size of the race.

Regarding the race and CP being far from the top. Hold your horses people. I am with Jenny in this one. What HRC does at the moment (of course it is always good to win the stages, even if you loose the race you can still advertise that you have won all the stages or whatever), but the real deal will be after the rest day.
Cyril will keep it low and ''judge'' the other riders. My guess is that 20 minutes behind (Neil said 25, but I think it will be difficult this year to match this number with all the young guns around) is ok for CP. Let the tricky stages begin and all these young guns will be flying in the wrong direction. Even Grabbo has admited his navigation skills (or better, the lack off....). He is a good rider and I am sure high temos will not have a large effect on him. But, most of these young shooters, the experience is only in two aliens. Coma and Despres. And, personally, I think it would be between these two...


For me Sherco is a big surprise up there, and a good one. Alain is doing amazing things there.


The Escale twins are flying today, once I have more news from the team will post. Pellicer seems to be doing ok as well. They are all running Mk1 roadbooks so I am sure they will not get confused in the dunes
The unfortunate thing is that I did not have enough time to set up the Suzukis with dataloggers, it would be fun to watch the data on these bikes. Temps were quite high from what I have seen....

That volcánic grey sand, at midday and in hot weather is quite tricky. Weather seems to be reasonably mild (30 desgrees Celsius), but after moving and marked with tracks gets really hard.

If so many are already gesting stucked, wa it for the late starters!

His only complaint was about the little sleep compared to last year, but understands it's something he is going to have to get used to. He also mentioned the liason stages were pretty boaring and the special stage quite easy to navigate. I know he sends Barry Batemin updates too. Thanks a million for all your updates Barry, very informative and much appreciated, seems we have much quicker and more accurate updates. Also many more followers and likes on Twitter and Facebook. I get goosebumps when I see all the support Brett has, thanks to all."

dakar.com about inmate fimp:

"Used to mishaps, French biker Frédéric Millet has broken down, shortly after the 86 km point of the bike special. He does not think he will be able to repair and is very pessimistic about continuing the rally."

A discrete but emerging rider in the discipline up to today, Sam Sunderland made a grand entrance into the club of elite riders by brilliantly winning his first special stage on the Dakar. The provisional podium, still dominated by Barreda, boasts two Hondas.


Sometimes promises come into being before they are actually made. Until today, Sam Sunderland had occasionally made an impact on various legs of the rally-raid world cup, by picking up respectable finishes and even some stage victories. However, to date, he has had a frustrating time on the Dakar, dropping out after three days of racing in 2012 and withdrawing a month before last year, due to fracturing both his wrists! Despite this double dose of bad luck, the Honda team did not hesitate to reserve him a bike for its ambitious Dakar programme. This inspired choice has been handsomely rewarded on only the rally's second day, with his dazzling victory between San Luis and San Rafael. Having started well behind his team-mate, Joan Barreda, the 23-year old Englishman superbly overtook Michael Metge and Juan Pedrero on the first part of the route. However, it was in the portion of dunes towards the end of the special that the resident of Dubai showed his youthful but confident and masterful experience of sand. On the finishing line he marvellously grabbed his first special stage victory, after only 4 days spent on the Dakar in total and can now claim to be a serious outsider for the podium… as long as he can maintain this excellent form and pace, as well as avoiding mistakes.

I believe it will go well, even though its far.

Pizzolito:

I had an accident as well damaging my roadbook
Took a corner too fast
I did not see CdP, I was monitoring my ride. One need to be careful in the sand and slippery conditions.

Israel:

It was a fast stage I passed a few guys, then I stopped when
my bike got water sucked into my engine in a crossing that was between 0.5m and 1m deep!
Got a lot of help from the spectators to go go go!! and I left.

Impresionante: the No. people in the dunes

this country has great support for the riders.

Look forward to CHile.

He said he had a good stage but after the dunes 4 bulls were on the road and he could not avoid one. He hurt his back but it does not think its is too bad and his focus will be going forward to consolidate his position.

My guy feel is that he will take it easier tomorrow.

Hard day for Kevin Muggleton!

His own words on Twitter:

Brutal stage!! About 80miles from end of dunes, waiting for bike to cool down

Looks like I'll be needing water from the emergency tank to fill coolant

Lots of bikes down, unfortunately medivac helicopters

There weren't so many dunes, maybe 50 km or so, but it was definitely a lot of fun and a big mixture of terrains and different type of riding – some technical stuff, then some really high speed stuff. All in all for me it was a good stage. I arrived at the finish in the top seven. They said I was first, so we'll wait and see if anyone else comes in faster than that. I'll be really happy if I take the stage. It will be the first one for me on the Dakar. It's great. The bike was awesome. Without all the work that goes on behind the scenes this is nothing, as you know, so I'm really grateful for the opportunity from Honda and all my sponsors. Hopefully I can carry on in this direction and have a good overall finish.
