    Pour ma part, j'ai fait une bonne spéciale. Rien d'extraordinaire mais je pense qu'au classement général, j'ai marqué des bons points aujourd'hui. Je partais 12e, mais j'ai vite rattrapé la tête de course et j'ai ouvert à partir du km 190. Donc, sachant que j'étais parti 20 mn derrière Barreda et Pedrero, je pense que je fais un bon coup!

    For me a pretty good stage. Nothing extraordinary but I think it worked pretty good for the general. I started 21th, but I quickly caught up the front and then I opened the stage starting at km 190. Therfore knowing that I left 20 min Barreda and pedrero I think it worked out pretty well for me.

    I'm a bit concerned about pretty boy Quintanilla. He just vanished.

    Anybody know what happened to Casselli today? He held his gap to about 23 minutes most of the stage, which suggests he was on pace with the leader.

    Good news that JC is on the move! 3hr38" lost. Going to be a long day (in the midst of the cars and trucks).

    It was actually a group of 3 running close (DeVillers, terranova and Chabot), so I guess the lost the way.

    Interesting development though. Given Nasser's overall position, isn't it more wise for him to be Sainz's water carrier?

    Not that he would ever do that, ofcourse. Doesn't seem like the man to be able to do that.

    Looks like something between WP2 and WP3 was the major time eater...
