Should be just about time for Thunderbirds to launch.
Only 7 pages to catch up on this morning. Thank goodness ASO give a late start reprieve after the longest stage.
Interesting perspectives on spectating the event.
I think for the true junkies among us, the nature of the information available is a bit of a tease and allows us to "participate" by speculating, and make some of our own judgments and guesses about what is happening, and with the forums, we get to share the experience of it with like minded friends.
I think it's a detriment for the casual to moderate fan, though.
That being said, really none of the advancements we've seen have come from ASO, they're all due to social media (ADV included), I think Kamanya is right on in that respect.
At least get the timing pages to work consistently.
Aussie. Have a good trip.
starting a slow clap for the bikes....
There's no doubt in my mind that RG's "infraction" last year was a strategically played card.
I dunno if we can do that within the rules.
Rookie, how do you read it in the book?
long slow handclap - first bike off 08.30 so 50 mins?
Local time still GMT -5?
For today, I think. Changes when they cross the border this afternoon.
I hope it changes for next stage, otherwise I prepare for the worst on the timing
Short special, no fuel issues, starting 5th - expect something better today #3
# 30 - you too
This is what blows my mind about both Dorna and ASO. Viral youtube videos do nothing but feed the fans and enhance their brands, yet they yank them down at the first instance.
In Peru yes
Behind the Dakar - Team HRC, day four

If I knew where every rider was at all times during the event, it does make me wonder if the F5 experience would be the same? I enjoy scrambling around trying to figure out the standings. All in all I would say the F5 team does a hell of a job following both the front and back runners of Dakar.
IIRC, stage should go off in about 40 min for the bikes. Cars may be on stage now.
In the past, they've had big problems with the cars overrunning the bikes with few safe places to pass on the narrower tracks. The past few editions, there have been a some split stages (which also let them put in more technical terrain for the bikes, playing in to the 450 argument).
If I were a major sponsor, I'd be on the phone screaming at Etienne/Carmelo every time they did it. Only way they're gonna get the message.
In MotoGP, they just announced that Monster is the title sponsor for the Yamaha Factory Team. There's a brand who's embraced the internet, and it has paid off in spades. Really helped them bring their product to the world. I wonder if they'll be the catalyst there for change? I hope so.
