    First info came from Pyn that Despres was swapping engines in the bivouac. doyle got the info that Faria was the donor, then things changed, obviously someone got an offer he couldn't afford to refuse.

    Team F5 exclusive info via Ullevalseter (=PAU)

    Pyndon's call from the Bikers' Bivouac.

    Lyndon calls in after the first of two marathon stages (bikes spend the night in their own bivouac, no assistance crews for the duration of two consecutive days). It was a rough day for him, both physically/health, and mechanically on the bike, which luckily can be considered his first setbacks of the rally. It was also an emotional day, as a moto competitor was killed on the liaison to the start of the special. Godspeed, Thomas Bourgin.

    Due to severe rainfall, SS8 was cancelled for the trucks and shortened for the bikes, who start at 12:00 noon from WP6.





    And the n00b strikes!

    from dakar.com

    L'Américain qui emmène les concurrents Moto s'éloigne du tracé de la spéciale, 30 Kms après le départ. Caselli a "oublié" de tourner à droite à une intersection, et est en train de se perdre dans la pampa.


    It's the American who takes competitors Moto away from the route of the special 30 km after the start. Caselli "forgot" to turn right at an intersection, and is being lost in the Pampas.
