    Luis shows a WP3 time aka CP1. I wonder of he was stopped there or if he's on his way around the loop?

    As Jonah used to say, a bike can never have too much gas.... unless it's on fire.

    That's the one I was thinking of. IIRC, he killed the euros on that special test.

    Luis checked in at WP3 at 12:37:07 (local time).
    Race stop announcement was at 17:26 (France time, I assume), 13:26 local time, more or less 1 hour later.
    I don't know usual delay from decision to announcement but it seems ... too tight for conclusions .... :huh

    EDIT : Barron(113) and SANTOS (136) checked in at wp3 at the same time as Luis and already checked in at wp4. He probably is riding to Wp4

    Yep everything I've been looking at, seems Luis made it through and up against Fiambala. :cry
    No proof or anything official. Just me thinking out loud.

    Chabot was wining at CP1 (38 seconds quicker than RG).
    Anyway till now it is neutralized, maybe it is relaunched after crossing a river somewhere else.
