    Guillaume doing admirably on today's stage, 2nd or 3rd on the course. :clap

    Martin started way back today after losing a lot of time yesterday but still moving, I think he is mid-field towards the rear.
    From the tracking it looks like he stopped to check on Thomas,

    who unfortunately is shown as stopped at the dunes for the last 3 hours... :cry

    Guillaume is a boss. Gotta love how the Africa Race still has the old Dakar vibe going on.

    I fear tha "race" it's finished for Stefano Turchi. His friends stayed with him more than a hour but now have resumed riding. I guess a broken bike, Stefano had already lost 15 minutes in the early part of the stage, so maybe some mechanical troubles? And his assistance (505) is still far from him...:evil
    Just hope he can anyway restart tomorrow!

    Shame for Stefano, he was doing fantastic. I hope they let him restart as well!

    Guillaume has finished the stage (Martin still in it) and is heading to the bivuac on the liaison, but I can't see his result over here :huh

    Sad news as well, Martin just posted this on his Facebook page:


    ‎31.12.2012.It is with great sadness to inform you all about the tragic death of my colleague and fellow compatriot racer CHRISTIAN GRAFF, who suffered a fatal heart-attack today, while trying to dig out his vehicle from the Dunes.

    Christian was a Team Member of the Belgian BDA Team.

    Our sincere condolences to all family and friends of CHRISTIAN GRAFF. RIP


    RIP

    Such an amazing YAM he's got this year!

    I think the correct Stage 3 results have been added over here and show Guillaume first overall so far! :clap

    Martin also hanging in there and bringing it in steady in 13th for 11th overall...

    Gutted about Thomas, does anyone know if he will continue tomorrow?

    From Vishakha, Tony's mom:

    Thomas just called me. He is fine. He said that one racing car drove over his bike and some parts are damaged. He is not sure whether he can get the bike fixed though. How terrible. I am so glad that he is ok. He said that he was just next to the bike standing...how lucky nothing happened to him. Thank you for all your support my friends.


    Good to hear he's ok :clap

    What a bad day:cry

    Stefano Turchi, winner of the first two stages, had a very bad fall, he's flying back to Italy and let's hope nothing too serious...
