No Watt's in 33rd...
...I don't care what anyone says, now that's funny!!
That's what I'd read as well, but Lyndon reported that two r2r folks were killed in his call in.
I just listened again, and that's what he was told.
Any lives lost are a tragedy, but praying this is not true.
SEnt lyndon a text. I believe it's bivouac misinformation. R2R crew injured but stable. Multiple civilian fatalities and injuries are the latest confirmed that I've seen.
Same here from a google, but I don't search in the local language, I don't speak it.
Just in from the Freedom Rally (RMS) truck:
In Calama tonight prepping the bikes for the marathon stage. Marco and Mateos bikes are in good shape. Luis is still out on the course. We will next see the bikes on the rest day in Tucuman.
Oh no.... say it ain't true!!!!

From Dave (RMS)
This morning I was lucky enough to be the deliver messenger for the ADV rider contributions to Manuel Luchese. Thats a lot of clams!
BTW, that was a first for me, I think -- listened to Lyndon's call from the RallyRAIDio.net website (on my phone) while I was outside with the kids.
Was that an awesome call, or what?
The fact that Lyndon makes time to call in EVERY day speaks volumes about the man, there must be a thousand other things he'd rather (or ought to) be doing yet he still makes time to keep us in the loop. Awesome as you say.
That's the coolest thing.
2013 Dakar - Stage 6
by Cyril Despres on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 1:45pm ·
Yesterday I said my plan for today was to push right from the start and that is exactly what I did until km 24 when I went into the wrong valley. I only lost about 2 minutes but it took about 3 boxes on the road book to make sure I was back on track and it all interrupted my flow a little. I went well over the rest of the first special and really enjoyed the second special after the neutralisation. For the first time on this Dakar we were on hard-packed pistes and it made a nice change from all the sand and off-piste weve had until now. There must have been between 150 to 200 bends over that section and it was great fun drifting through them. Quite quickly though I got caught in Bottuiris dust and then he got caught in Casteus who eventually got stuck behind Pain. I never overtake in the dust, as it is just too dangerous, and that meant that I didnt make up as much time over the stage as I had hoped.
Tomorrow is the start of the marathon stage that will eventually take us to Tucuman. With no mechanical assistance tomorrow night we will have to take care of our engines and also make sure we get enough sleep. Fortunately Ruben had another great day today and so we will be able to ride tactically tomorrow which should allow me to catch up to Lopez and pull back 4 minutes.
