    This is an extract from the official "social network" manager for the ASO/Dakar:

    Rules concerning the use of the trademark DAKAR on your social networks (and websites in general):Except with the prior and written agreement from A.S.O, the name/url of your accounts/websites/mobile applications/pages shall not include the Dakar name and/or any of distinctive signs of the event. Only a Dakar section can be included within your website/mobile application and/or pages.


    Rules regarding the contents of the DAKAR: Many unofficial video contents will be published. We ask you to share only materials you have rights on (i.e previous agreement with A.S.O.) and/or the official contents that will be posted on the official Dakar accounts. Please note A.S.O has the right to have every unauthorized contents you may publish or share removed from any platform.
    They may not have liked the content, but they've made it very clear that no accounts may be named with the word "Dakar" set up. As far as flagrant contravention a twitter account "@DakarRallyRaid" is about as big a red flag as could be had.

    Kudos to your girlfriend! :clap
    I would do that for my man in a heartbeat. Although I would want to be on a bike too. :wink:

    thanks F5 for keeping the hose going...you are costing me zzzs :deal


    I too miss Meoni :cry
    RIP Tomas Bourgin :cry

    Pat, Pyn and Mani :clap

    wow wow Caselli! :clap

    Did we ever find out who was the pillow sponsor for tonight?

    Oh and I find it pretty funny that ASO controls the rights to usage of a name of a town,
    I mean how to the true Dakarisians feel about not being able to post up a FB page titled Dakar's Best Restaurants...

    Another work marathon for me tomorrow, so keep to hose and the tweets going

    many thanks

    It seems extreme until digging a bit deeper. A sensible person at Twitter would look to see what the content for DakarDingbit before terminating the account, but not all the world is sensible.

    I can see their grievance with @DakarRallyRaid as a handle though - at first glance it might read as the official event source. They will want to maintain control over the official feed for good reason, case in point is the death of Thomas Bourgin.

    Pyndon's call from the Bikers' Bivouac. Sorry for the delay, tending to family duties.


    Lyndon calls in after the first of two marathon stages (bikes spend the night in their own bivouac, no assistance crews for the duration of two consecutive days). It was a rough day for him, both physically/health, and mechanically on the bike, which luckily can be considered his first setbacks of the rally. It was also an emotional day, as a moto competitor was killed on the liaison to the start of the special. Godspeed, Thomas Bourgin.

    No kidding. :bluduh

    I'm a little shocked one of them hasn't contacted Baldy to shut this place down. Which of course, would be the most stupid thing imaginable. And totally predictable. :csm

    Lyndon once again going above and beyond.

    Emotions of loosing a fellow rider
    Altitude sickness
    Bike challenges
    Cold and wet
    Dust
    No crew.

    He still takes the time to give all of us a call. He needs a good night sleep. He also needs a good day tomorrow. He did not sound disappointed at all the first special was cancelled

    As much as we spectators are disappointed by special cancellations or shortening, I've yet to hear a competitor complain about it when it happens a week or more into the rally. :knary

    ¡Jordi Viladoms llega al vivac!

    Han pasado más de seis horas desde que el piloto conseguía poner de nuevo en marcha la moto. Se le ha hecho de noche y ha empezado a llover, y a esa altitud a nevar, por precaución y primando la integridad del piloto la organización le ha permitido llegar al vivac de coches y camiones y su moto será custodiada hasta mañana, ya que los demás pilotos de motos se encuentran en el vivac de la etapa maratón sin asistencia.

    Jordi explica que "estoy bien, con fuerzas aún para mañana, ahora toca ducha, comer algo y dormir, ha sido un día muy duro pero teníamos que llegar, he ido poco a poco porque se ha hecho de noche y ha empezado a llover, pero la moto ha respondido bien después de solucionar los problemas mecánicos".

    Jordi tras reparar su moto ha sido capaz de llegar al vivac pilotando en condiciones extremas, pero ahí está y mañana saldrá a disputar la siguiente etapa.
    ¡¡¡¡¡¡VAMOS JORDI!!!!! SOM-HI JORDI !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jordi Viladoms comes to the bivouac!

    More than six hours have passed since the pilot managed to again start the bike. It has been done at night and it has started to rain, and at that altitude to snow, for caution and giving priority to the integrity of the pilot organization has allowed him to arrive at the bivouac of cars and trucks and your bike will be guarded until tomorrow, the other riders of motorcycles can be found in the bivouac of the stage Marathon without assistance.

    Jordi explains that "I'm fine, with forces even for tomorrow, now it time to shower, eat and sleep, has been a very hard day but we had to reach, I have gone slowly because it has been done at night and it has started to rain, but the bike responded well after mechanical Troubleshooting".

    Jordi after repairing his bike has been able to arrive at the bivouac riding in extreme conditions, but there it is and tomorrow will compete in the next stage.
    VAMOS JORDI! SOM-HI JORDI!
