    And I'm guessing the Bultaco is going to sleep on the course again this night
    He did numerous stages like that last year, and if that's what works for him..

    Barreda explained his atage:

    He broke his tyre, then his wheel, which turn to broke one of his gas tanks.
    So he had to wait to change his wheel, and then for gas.
    He said he had no rpoblem with navigation, and was happy not to loose more time.

    Patronelli (quads) at his time saying he is running at a slow pace, but having no reference to meassure his speed.

    Others, Pablo Rodriguez (49, Honda Argentina), main problem is he has fever, and slow down, but is running solidly in late 20s

    Holowczyc is hurt in an accident at km40, not sure whether he is continuing or not. Bummer, he always seems like a nice guy.

    That's really strange, I thought the SB Huskies only had one huge tank on the rear, and the small feeder tank right behind the engine....

    Heads up, France 4 live in a minute :wink:
