    I have feeling WP 7 is going to be treated as a CP and the results will only show when they get to WP 8.

    Or the tracking has gone to the dogs again :D

    not to replay but I was reading a few pages back that Cyril changed out the bottom end.. now why would he change out a barrel and head with the chance of a leak, etc.. It looked like a straight complete motor swap to me.

    If cdp joins HRC my support for HRC is gone. I like that a band of brothers has formed around the 450x rallye.

    He has few attractive qualities. He's no team rider.

    I'm going with the dog pack option.
    CP3's at km499 and it would really throw a wrench into the gears to have CP2.1 show up.

    Chilean Josefina Gardulski's rescue of fellow countryman Axel Heilenkotter didn't earn her any good karma, it seems. She was hit by a mechanical problem which degenerated into a fire. She was 133rd in the overall this morning.

    That is sad. I had the chance to support the team she is in during five stages on this Dakar. Strong girl, two ISDE. It seems something went wrong during the rest day.....

    Bottom end is what carries the swap penalty. He did a straight swap at the marathon bivouac, and if rules have been followed, he was allowed to do whatever he wanted to the top end at rest day (but not touch the bottom end without taking a 2nd penalty).

    I speculate (with no information, heh, who did that ever stop) that he put on a good head/ piston/ cam/ etc at rest day, and is back to having the HP he is accustomed to, on the same bottom end he swapped in at Marathon.
