    OK, I'm going to chime in here even though this whole thread seems to be a Cyril and ASO bashing thread, but I thought if the engine swap had been OKed by the race directer, then it should be OK.

    If the race directer had a problem with the engine change I thought he would have said so instead of booting the biggest star of the rallye out on a rule infringement that everyone would consider "in the spirit of the Dakar"...

    So now you can go back to your French bashing ways...

    Oh and great to see Grabbo go so well for a while, just a sign of things to come.

    dakar com (from the french site)

    After the decision of the Board of Commissioners of the race car, after neutralization of the special stage 8, all cars have not crossed the finish line before 4:24 p.m. are given time by Stéphane Peterhansel, is 2h07'21''. Therefore Chicherit won his first special on the Dakar 2013, 4'02'' ahead of Orlando Terranova and 5'17'' on Robby Gordon. Nasser Al Attiyah and Giniel De Villiers, both prosecutors Peterhansel therefore remain unchanged gap with the leader of the general classification: 3'14'' for the Qatari driver, always second, and 44'03'' for Giniel De Villiers , 3rd.

    Probably because of those 10,000+ posts, most are reposts of the same facebook pages, posts to say the ASO/CDP/All-Attiyah is/are cheats, and people just posting to get there posts up in this thread.:lol3

    After ES1 I ran out for food and beer :beer on the ride home my phone is playing random mp3 through the radio and what comes on but Nate and Ned chatting up last year's stage 2! :1drink

    Kept it playing while I watched the F4 coverage I recorded earlier while at work....great call.
    Dunes, Street's breakdown, boiling fuel, rider that hit a cow, wrong gearing, listening to girl with the dragon tattoo on liason.....Ned sure sounded like he was having a great time! :D
