    005 - Barreda gains more seconds after 140 km

    Just before the half-way point, Joan Barreda leads the bikers, having taken advantage of a starting position slightly down the order. He boasts a lead of 2'28" over Francisco Lopez, 3'47" over Juan Pedrero Garcia and 5'25" over Cyril Despres. At present, Kurt Caselli has lost 9'19" to the stage leader, having opened the road on the first portions of the special. He has been caught by the stage leaders and they are now riding together

    At CP2 after 169 km, there is a refuelling point for the bikers. In the literal and metaphorical sense, Joan Barreda is therefore full on... He leads the special by 2'42" over "Chaleco" Lopez, and is distancing his pursuers as the stage goes on. In third, 4'36" behind, Juan Pedrero Garcia is less comfortable, with Ruben Faria in his wake (4'44” behind the leader). Ivan Jakes is fifth and Cyril Despres is sixth, respectively 5'58" and 6'25" behind the stage leader.

    Faria leading


    The Portuguese rider is still in the lead and Frenchman Alain Duclos is speeding along on his Sherco since he now lies in third place behind Przygonski, 1'52" behind the stage leader and 11 seconds behind the Polish rider. Behind them, Joan Barreda and Francisco Lopez are respectively 2'16" and 3'36" off the lead. The position of Frans Verhoeven is still unknown, but should be available in a few minutes.

    It was clear from the timing sheets that something dramatic had happened to Lyndon in the first sector of today's stage, but no one in cyberspace could have imagined how close his rally came to being over. Lesser men would not have been able to repair the damage and bring it home (on pace, no less, once he got going again). We didn't have an interview planned, but I was able to catch Lyndon on his call in and have a chat -- glad I did! Go "Inside the Helmet" as Lyndon talks about what was going through his mind both out on the piste, and at the end of the stage. Brilliant stuff.

    Public Radio fundraising notice: (Thanks to those who have already chipped in! We're about 3/4 to our goal.)

    Last year, through the generosity of the listeners, we were able to cover the cost of Neduro's phone bill for the communication costs to RallyRAIDio and ADVRider throughout the Dakar. :bow If you've enjoyed Lyndon's call ins and interviews on this edition, consider chipping in a few $$, € €, or ££ toward the cause. Many hands make light work, and based on our experience with Ned last year, the tab will run handily into 4-digit territory (sans decimals). It would be wonderful if we could take this burden off of Lyndon's shoulders.

    For those so inclined,
