    What's the hardest part of riding a quad in the Dakar?

    You're doing a great job, Flood. I've appreciated it a couple of days that I couldn't keep up during the day. :thumb

    The engine of Chilean Axel Heilenkotter's Sherco seems to have broken down. Fellow Chilean Josefina Gardulski has come to his aid and is now towing him through the special.

    But Pizzolito, who was quickest HRC more than once is down in the 30s. Honda really isn't the shining beacon of reliability and regularity this year.

    Was really surprised to see them slammed in the Dakar.com summary, calling this year a "flop" for them. Could be a translation nuance, but that's pretty harsh language from the ASO marketing department!

    Didn't want to offend our SA counterparts.

    They're kinda sensitive, ya know.
