    10:10 - bike

    017 - Botturi back on track

    Alessandro Botturi is now heading in the right direction, but he made a 7-km detour that will probably lose him several minutes.

    Yakesh is the correct. Everytime I hear Carlton's "Jakes" I cringe :lol3

    Thx Neil The LEG

    Having raced against Riaan (he passed me) and seeing him on TT at Nationals, he is SUper consistent.

    Casseli is fast indeed. And learning from Coma must be a great leap.

    Yes, he's out of rally. It would be too painful to continue so he quit.

    Even some Slovaks call him "Jakes" as Kirby does, just for fun.

    At CP2 after 169 km, there is a refuelling point for the bikers. In the literal and metaphorical sense, Joan Barreda is therefore full on... He leads the special by 2'42" over "Chaleco" Lopez, and is distancing his pursuers as the stage goes on. In third, 4'36" behind, Juan Pedrero Garcia is less comfortable, with Ruben Faria in his wake (4'44” behind the leader). Ivan Jakes is fifth and Cyril Despres is sixth, respectively 5'58" and 6'25" behind the stage leader.

    Something definitely got him in that section, though. He dropped 42' to CP1.



    Come on PYN!

    See Im not a detailed guy (except when it comes to 3d maps :wink:). So I ignored the detail, even the fuel stop positions, and just took an intuitive guess instead, based on past performance. Do you remember that Eurosport footage of Helder our front in the lead on his Yamaha and then walking around scuffing the dirt because he had no fuel! Silly, but these things catch the best of us at times.

    Whoa!
    +00:42:13!
    Maybe he hurt that foot a lot more than he let on in the call-in.

    I didn't have him on Mischa, but I did find him on Posis. Must have just missed an update on the tracker. He is there now.


    Hope he can come back on a steady pace. going to be a long day.
