    Probably no way to underestimate how important recovery is on an endurance event like this. Bet they're glad for their motorhomes and hot showers, too.


    Remember, his tracking didn't show in the second half of the stage yesterday, either. With all that was going on with his bike, they may not know that the tracker is broken, or may not have had time to fix it if they did. :dunno We'll probably have to see if he appears at the manual CP's, which will take quite a while at his pace. :worrybeads

    I was just wonder how he was doing as i wonder about the thing to be on a 150cc smoker that is likely unpowered for this thing of race.

    Luis himself seem to be a mix of magic man and the survivelance like McGyver..:D

    Morning all, not going to be able to follow today - Im all day at the doc.

    From Casteu.fr
    Mardi 15 janvier 2013 – Etape 10 : Cordoba – La Rioja

    Ce mardi, David n’a pas pris le départ de la 10e étape Cordoba – La Rioja, ayant été contraint à l’abandon à l’issue de la 9e étape disputée lundi.
    Ayant chuté après avoir percuté une vache sur la piste au km 120, David été blessé à l’épaule.

    “J’ai les ligaments reliant la clavicule et l’omoplate arrachés. Donc cela devient très difficile pour moi de continuer à mi-parcours. Je suis très déçu pour mes partenaires et pour toutes les personnes qui sont derrière moi” explique David qui occupait la 1re place du classement général avant cet accident.
    “Je reste sur place pour assurer mon rôle de manager dans le team en soutenant Romain Souvignet” conclut David.
    Solidaire, Romain Souvignet a assisté David durant son malheur, c’est la raison pour laquelle le second pilote du team Casteu a perdu autant de places.

    Tuesday, David did not take the start of the 10th stage Cordoba - La Rioja, having been forced to retire at the end of the 9th stage played Monday.
    Who fell after hitting a cow on the track at km 120, David was wounded in the shoulder.

    "I have the ligaments connecting the clavicle and scapula torn. So it becomes very difficult for me to continue to mid-term. I am very disappointed for my partner and all the people behind me, "says David who was the 1st place overall before the accident.
    "I remain on site to ensure my role as team manager in supporting Souvignet Roman" concludes David.
    Solidarity Souvignet Roman attended David in his misfortune, this is the reason why the second rider Casteu lost many places.

    WP's are automatically tracked, CP's are manually logged. So if someone's bike has an issue with the automated timing, they won't show until they hit a manual CheckPoint. Luis is (hopefully) out there on the piste somewhere, but we won't have confirmation until he either pops up at a timing point, or shows on the withdrawal list.

    Seeing a rider on timing page tells you they're out there. But not seeing them doesn't mean they're not out there. Clear as mud? :scratch

    True. Underpowered would be an understatement :lol3

    just managed to catch up and loved the Coma teaching K.Caselli video. I'd love to see more vids if they are out there...

    Good guy is an understatement. Kurt is the most unpretentious, humble kid you'll meet. It would be great to see him return and have someone without an overblown ego running with the lead pack for years to come.

    Not usual overflowing smile, but still more cheery than Cyril with the media on a good day. :D
