    Yes, not too pleasant and what with Mali, a stark reminder of why we are where we are.

    Lost, but maybe his shoulder is starting to give him grief as well?

    Indeed.

    They tried Asia with the Silk Way, and that didn't work. SA is here to stay.

    Barreda and Casseli cant be lost can they?

    Remember this Copiapo stage last year? Neil Scott Williams around 80th position got lost and then saw some riders in the distance from the top of a dune. So he decided to follow them. It turned out to the leaders and he had missed a 120km loop! :rofl

    He came to the finish on the live tracking way ahead of Coma and Despres. Here it is for prosperities sake. :lol3

    Pity he was DQ'd but thats the way it goes sometimes.

    Robby is gunning for a stage win, up 17" over peterhansel at the first check.

    He clocks a CP time, but no WP time, so expect tracking and results to be wonky.

    Ruben Faria is now in front, leading Francisco Lopez by 9", Frans Verhoeven by 23" and Juan Pedrero Garcia by 5'13". Alain Duclos is in fifth, 2'33" behind the stage leader and 17" ahead of Ivan Jakes. Following his navigation problems, Joan Barreda is in eighth place.

    No sign of Luis at CP1 yet. Cars are already through that point.

    So Barreda lead the first group off track but the others realized it and turned but he was still running in the wrong direction? (all of them have lost time to Faria)

    edit: and now he's flying, cut the time from 4´30 down to 2 minutes to Chaleco
