    At the 221 km point, there is a dune that finishes in a peak and on the way up, crossing the peak crest of the dune seems to be causing problems. Many vehicles are in difficulty, with Bernard Errandonea and Christian Lavieille currently stuck, as well as Dutch biker Martinus Huigevoort and his countryman Caspar Van Heertum. A little further, after 239 km, Eric Vigouroux's Protruck is experiencing problems, just a few kilometres in front of the struggling quad ridden by Poland's Lukasz Laskawiec… and these are merely just a few examples...

    Newsflash: Snooker runs off LIVE Dakar. Way to go, Eurosport. I thought only ASO applied their tenets so selectively. :rolleyes

    Faria´s got sponsered by SPECIALIZED. They gave him a XC and a road bike to work out. He uses it and put some photos on is Facebook to give them return. He also uses a white jersey from Red Bull and... yes, you guess it! A Red Bull bandana! :lol3

    Edit: Faria FB photo

    So, Carlton Kirby bashed us for having issues with the live broadcast of never ending snooker games. "That's just the way it is." =)

    I've spent quite some time thinking about this. Various riders being told they need to hold in a waiting pattern for CDP so that he can snatch the win. If I were CDP and "won" this rally because other people were ordered to wait for me I'd feel that the victory was kind of hollow. I guess this is the backside to being a trademark behind two large corporations (KTM & RedBull), but still - tastes kind of foul I think.

    Would just like to point out that I picked post 10'000. ;)

    Oh I think most of us understand. Not trying to paint everyone with the same brush. Every region on the planet has people that suffer from that type of myopia.

    And one last thing. Whoohoo go Simon:freaky

    It's the usual daily slowdown around here. Everyone must be watching the live feeds. I'll wait until some kind soul posts the clips. :augie

    Dakar 2013, 12th Stage , Fiambala - Copiapo
    715 km stage (447 miles) including 319 km special test

    Barreda third. Tenth podium place for Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain.
    *
    High speeds throughout and a lot navigation made the twelfth stage of the Dakar, from Fiambala to Copiapo a tough one. Joan "Bang Bang" Barreda proved to be the best of the Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain taking third place on the day, and bringing the team its tenth podium place out of the twelve stages contested so far. Joan, who led throughout the race made a slight navigational error which dropped him down into third place finishing just three minutes behind winner Verhoeven.

    Alessandro Botturi, on the other hand, had a day worth forgetting. After holding seventh place for the first half of the race, the rider lost a lot of time looking for the way point. Alessandro finished fourteen minutes behind the leader, but now runs the risk of being penalized with a one hour penalty for failure to pass Way Point 13.

    Paulo Goncalves had a fairly lacklustre day, opening the track for the other riders after starting from second position. He came in sixteenth, ten minutes behind the winner.

    Tomorrow sees the penultimate stage of the rally from Copiapo to La Serena including 441 km special test (275 miles) and a total distance of 735 km (460 miles). The last real stage before they roll into Santiago.

    Joan Barreda: “I really pushed hard right from the start today, and I lead the way for quite a stretch. Then I made a slight navigational error and lost a few minutes, but I managed to pull it back almost straight away. I’m pleased with my race today.”

    Paulo Goncalves: “It was difficult to open a race like today’s. I started out from second, and was like a hare to the other greyhounds that were in chase. Anyway, I’m fairly pleased with my race and I didn’t make any significant mistakes.”

    Alessandro Botturi: ”I’m really disappointed. Everything went really well until halfway through the race. Then I lost patience when I couldn’t find the right route and I missed a way point which will cost me a one hour penalty. Today I threw away practically everything…..a shame.”
