Interesting the neck braces are not compulsory like in many other motorsports like F1.

For those of you in the UK - this weeks MotorCycleNews has 4 pages of good coverage on the UK riders - plenty of cool photos !
Is there live tv coverage today?
alexmedina.nl’s DNS address could not be found.???
No Bolivia TV, bummer.
Sams to lose. GO!!! Sam GO!!!
Looks like fun terrain today, I expect we will see nav errors and some changes in the standings
Fantastic! Thanks a lot. I´m not lazy to search for it, just too busy those days to follow the rally, write in czech FB fan page and work 8 hours a day
Anyway, it looks like pre-south america were Dakars on the edge of 3 weeks, not two. With 3 weeks time will be plenty of spare days when will be possible to react on weaather changes, unexpected critical regional situations etc - simply everything, what happens at South America almost every time in past years. And it would not be possible to say, that Dakar was always 2 weeks as it´s not true. In fact - very often 18 or more days.
Morning Ted - up early today?
Quintanilla and Van Beveren ready to pounce
Pablo Quintanilla and Adrien Van Beveren have got their teeth into the special. The second and third placed riders in the general standings have still not won a stage this year and will also have to be wary of Matthias Walkner who would also like to climb onto the final podium in Buenos Aires
A big day for the chasers to put time into Sam, but he'll be starting behind them tomorrow if they do!
07:59 Barreda is also in difficulty!
The route drawn up by the organisers is not making the riders’ task easy today. Joan Barreda has missed a sharp turn after 53 km and is now at a standstill as he looks for the right track!
07:56 Sunderland loses his way!
After 39 km of the special, Sam Sunderland has missed the right track and is now 1.5 km from the correct route in the road-book. The Englishman will have to be careful not to miss any way-points otherwise he could make big time losses on stage 10!
@misc Startingtimes are a litttle mixed up from 14th #050 D Nosiglia on your tracker shows 05:05:00 ...
Wonder where that data comes from?!
UPDATE: It's normal again... if the 5:xx times return there must be some invalid data online which I need to track... maybe those are the DSS times they left bivouac
UPDATE2: And they're back... grmfh :)
UPDATE3: They're wrong on official timing too....
08:03 Sunderland turns back!
In perhaps another dramatic turn for the general standings, Sam Sunderland has realised that he made a mistake and has turned back to find the right track. However, the KTM will have lost a significant amount of time…
GO!!! Mature Sam GO!!!
Pablo has ripped 16.45min out of him
Hope they are supplying catering for you as well Mischa, it's the least they could do.
Ok last update. It's fixed. I ignore the invalid data from the official site now...
They were wrong on the orga tracking...self fixing at the dss i think they do it just to see if you're awake
