    Honestly, I think Carlton isn't very interested in the Dakar and mostly reads the report from the piece of paper prepared by the ASO media guys.

    surely even those hardcore f5'ers who admitted to enjoying the teasing nature of the trackers can not be happy with their performance today...

    AbSOolute crap....

    - Casteu provisionally wins the stage

    David Casteu, who led the special stage from start to finish, has confirmed his domination at the finisihing line with a total time of 1:39'42", which should make him the day's winner. Behind him, the situation is less clear, because the riders who set off after twentieth place have ridden like the wind: Svitko, Pedrero Garcia, Israel Esquerre, Caselli and Jakes are awaited at the finishing line to confirm their impressive positions. For the moment Olivier Pain, Alessandro Botturi and Helder Rodrigues make up the rest of the top four, but the situation is likely to change.

    This doesnt seem surprising. It takes cycles to input incoming data and disseminate. I believe they are obviously batch transmitting, which is why the info seems to come in clumps, much like my email :bluduh

    Although, maybe we could teach them about push technology, ANYWAaY it seems like today's stage was just too short, and it was over before the first batches were fully cooked.

    Pain was on the front for the whole stage (well, once Barreda got lost). Casteu only closed 50" on him on Piste.


    Good ride by David, but EXCELLENT ride by Olivier Pain today!
