    Dakar.com photos from stage 8, re-posted over in the Dakar 2013 Media thread. unfortunatly, not too many photos of the rain-gate / we canceled the stage because the cars were too afraid to cross the river... but pretty good photos from the stage either way. i'm sure more photos will follow once all the photogs slog their way back to the biovac.

    Not so good news from Manuel, though:

    The situation is quite bad, the engine lost all its compression today was a nightmare for me to manage to pass some sections of the stage. I need to get the engine rebuilt if i want to have a chance to finish, i have the parts but have no clue on how to put hands on the TM engine.

    From PAU FB:


    Then we got the answer: there were 14 riders yesterday that did not come across the river. All these got fixed time 2h ​​10 m This means that PAU and the gang keeps the time that was stated yesterday. He stands now at 19 Place in the summary (one that has received a penalty). He greets from south America and use the day to rest. He promises full throttle the next few days :)

    Dave from Rally Management Services (GSNorCal on ADV) chats with us from the rest day bivouac for the stories on Kevin Muggleton's abbreviated run, updates on crowd favorite Luis on the 150cc 2 stroke, and what it's like to participate not as a rider, but on the team side of things (a perspective that may be more realistic for many of us).

    Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule for us, Dave!
