    Au kilomètre 53, Joan Barreda Bord a fait route un peu trop au nord avant de revenir sur la trace principale, une petite erreur qui n'a duré qu'une demi-douzaine de kilomètre mais qui lui permet d'avandonner la position d'ouvreur détenue a présent par David Casteu et Olivier Pain... Tactique ?

    Barreda off track at km53, dakar com ask if it's a tactical move

    Packmule, you have the physical position math down, I never can handle that magic.

    Barreda is +6'13" at WP, so Casteu and Pain are leading physically now, opening the track, right?

    After 53 km, Joan Barreda Bort took a route too far to the north before returning to the main tracks, a slight mistake that only lasted for a half dozen kilometres, enabling him to abandon the duties of opening the road, which is now the responsibility of David Casteu and Olivier Pain... Could it be a part of a tactical plan?
