    Looking forward to hearing Pyndons RR tonight. Seems like a cluster happened and we haven't gotten any idea of what happened on the track today. Peoples times were all over the place.

    At least you didn't say "gay" you know Honda is a Corpation and that makes them a person so you shouldn't say someone sucks! Haven't you gotten the message from Flanny?:wink:

    +1

    Lost, stuck, broken down, and now the stage is frozen anyway......

    It'll also be interesting to see what times are allowed to stand or if the whole thing gets neutralized.

    And the stress begins. Our rider Marco (189) should of hit wp3 long time ago.
    Dakar costs me a F5 button and lots of gray hair.

    Laia will be on Lyndons ASS at the moment on track ... or the other way :evil .

    They just neutralized the stage for cars and trucks, so I hope the bikes are through this riverbed.

    ... has anyone heard from rmhrc628...??? :ear

    I'm worried for his sake...

    ... if anyone has spotted him, give him some encouragement from all of us here at the f5 assylum... he'll kikely be the one kneeling in the desert sands somewhere, white bandanna on his forehead, wearing a red JCR t-shirt and grasping a bbq fork with both hands, pressed against his navel. :wink:

    "After 200 km, the competitors who have not yet passed through CP1 have stopped and will head straight to the bivouac. Since the quad special has made it passed this point, the battle continues. Sebastian Husseini leads Paul Smith by 2'01", whilst Gaston Gonzales occupies third place, 6'21" behind the Emirati, but ahead of Marcos Patronelli, who trails the stage leader by 9'46"."

    So the bikes just have to tough it out... :puke1

    Bang Bang out?
    From Dakar.com:
    We'll have to see if I can carry on
    We went through plenty of dry river beds, so by the end, my goggles were dirty. There was a point where it was a little bit deeper and I fell. It was 50 kilometres from the end of the special, around the 180-km point. I banged my shoulder. I'll have a look at it at the bivouac this evening but it's really painful. We'll have to see if I can carry on. I fell because of the mud and my dirty goggles. I don't know what's wrong with my shoulder but it's really painful.

    Unless they have yet to make it to WP3. Sounds like the back of the bike pack has turned around as well so riders not showing WP3 times won't? :dunno
