No word on why Patrick has an extra 15 minute penalty over and above the 15 mins for the engine change...

Why do factory teams always release videos that only feature their bikes/competitors? This is a race. It's much more interesting when we see the competition as well. They could even string together some sort of story. Something different than seeing the same content over and over.
First year in f5land and is it just me or is anyone else going into Dakar overload/meltdown
After 3 hours sleep I was back in here this morning to catch up and now I'm about stuffed.
Got to get some more sleep or I won't make the rest day
First year here too... It's certainly a lot to parse!!
After rolling the truck front end over, They somehow managed to get it upright and continue on to finish the stage..there is a pic on here somewhere showing the truck on its roof...amazing job to get to the bivvy!!

Paul's blog entry about making the race is a great read. Shame it all came undone for him so early.
This first week has really blown me away this year. There are aspects of Africa that I still miss, of course, but I think they've finally settled into a quantity of worthy terrain.
Well things came to a screeching halt in here!! Everyone must be preparing road books for tomorrows start of the marathon stage...which really is not a true marathon...ok, so you have to sleep in the dirt somewhere I see after the ASS they have a short transit to there special bivvy..wonder if the assistance route follows that same track? If so I guess we will see more side of the road servicing tomorrow...
I was going to leave this be, but Brodo took it and ran.
Day 6 Arica Calama 313 km liaison 455 km special
This first special stage held in Chile took the competitors to the Atacama desert, a plateau that covers a 600-mile strip of land on the Pacific coast west of the Andes Mountains, famous for the torrid temperatures, sand dunes and salt lakes.
The Dakar is getting tougher and tougher and riders faced today a 455-km stage, split in two parts by 100 km of liaison. The first stage was characterized by big rolling dunes at the sea level, while the second part climbed up to 3,200 meters, before reaching the mining town of Calama at 2,200 meters of altitude.
Overall it was a very long day that stressed the competitors bodies as well as the machines. Endurance alone is not sufficient as riders need to focus always at their road books and ride with an accurate navigation.
Chilean rider Chaleco Lopez won the first fully Chilean special stage of the year in front Portuguese Ruben Faria (234 behind) and Cyril Despres, third at 0348, while Helder Rodrigues finished 7th , 06.58 behind the stage winner. Argentinian Javier Pizzolito rode with a good pace and finished 16th, 1137 from Lopez. It was a positive day for Johnny Campbell in 24th still suffering from sore ribs. With todays results Helder Rodrigues gained some valuable positions and sits in 9th place overall, Javier Pizzolito in 13th and Johnny Campbell in 77th, due the problem he had on the third stage.
Helder Rodrigues SS6 7th +0658, 9th in the Overall: It was a long stage and climbing uphill we had the first taste of the altitude. Tomorrow it will be tougher as the stage will be averagely between 3,400 and 4,000 meters. With 4 hours sleep last night, it will be important to have a good rest and be ready for tomorrows marathon stage.
Javier Pizzolito SS6 16th +1137, 13th in the Overall: I rode consistently without taking too many risks as it is still a long race and its important not to make mistakes. I enjoyed particularly the sandy dunes and Im ready for tomorrows marathon stage.
Johnny Campbell SS6 24th +2341, 77th in the Overall: I enjoyed the big rolling dunes in the first part of the stage. In the second part the machine started to feel the altitude and I also could feel it, as it was more difficult to breath. It will important now to take a good rest as tomorrow we will climb up to 4,975 metres.
