    Stupidest tactical call ever, and they deserve to lose the rally on it.

    Well, really, someone else deserves to win on a good performance, but this will be contributing factor.

    CD is swapping with Dabrowski, taking 15 min both and of course 45 min tomorrow for both. Confirmed from PAU.

    Cyril Despres est en train de changer son moteur avec le Polonais Marek Dabrowski. 3e, Ruben Faria joue aussi la gagne #Dakar2013

    Should make the rest of the rallye interesting, with over an hour down CD will not have any other alternative than full attack mode... We'll see how much he really was saving his bike....

    Dabrowski currently in 72nd overall, dropping an hour is only about 10 places...

    Of course, can he make it through tomorrow's stage?

    And there is of course possibility that CD will try to finish on Dabrowski's old engine, Svitko finished last year fifth with single stock engine. Anyway, Dabrowski just earned lifetime KTM friendship :)
