    Ladies, Gentlemen,

    this is ADVrider's traditional Dakar Cliff Notes thread. Its purpose is to offer the day's most important information and media, interviews and tweets that show up all over ADV and the rest of the net.

    The Official Event Coverage thread - aka the firehose - will be moving at a brisk pace and will be hard to follow for all but the most desperate fans.

    This thread will be locked, so that only moderators can post here. The mods will try to move the most informative posts here and we hope that the result is something everyone can follow.

    Welcome, and a great Dakar to all - Racers, teams, lurkers and posters!

    New for 2013: The bike's prologue/SS1 times will e multiplied by a factor of 5, cars by factor 3 to ensure everyone goes full speed and no one holds back for a better starting position in SS2.

    SS1 is runnning in reverse order, with Chaleco posting a first best in front of Verhoeven an Chilean hotshot Quintanilla. The best are yet to come.

    SS1 results: 1.López (CHL), 2.Verhoeven (NLD) , 3.Quintanilla (CHL), 4.Cabrera (CHL), 5. Despres (FR), 5.Casteu (FR).

    If the x5 rule for the prologue stands, Despres (+13sec on track) will be 1'5" behind Chaleco in the overall standings.

    @Sundersam
    Glad that prologue is over with no major dramas imagine you loose 10mins for a fuse - x3 +30min out of contention. .Good job #TeamHRC

    HRC riders at SS1: Pizzolito 8th +21", Rodrigues 29th +53", Campbell 49th +1'19"

    The cars are underway. The Red Bull buggies seem to work just fine so far:

    Sainz leads, Nasser +10", Peterhansel (Mini) +34". Waiting for Gordon's Hummmbuggy.
