David Reeve from Zambia broke his leg, looks like Ullevalsetter helped him out quite a bit
Good morning all!
Helder at breakfast, looks a bit relieved the race is nearing the finish line I suppose
Helder to Henke: "... and then he say's...
... maybe if we put a fuel gauge on each of the five fuel cells...
we can see where the consumption is most...?"
Henke: "... sound's good... schedule a test for december then shall we...?"
the general heading of miscalculations will in your own inimitable words, do nicely thanks
Well said, thanks for sharing!
A few days ago a friend of mine looked at me and asked, what's wrong. I could barely speak and had to answer, that a rider of the DAKAR died in an accident. Someone I never met but still I was almost crying. My friend didn't know anything about DAKAR but asked and was interested in the stories. I met her 3h later again and then I had to asked what was wrong. She could only answer that she is sad because a rider died in the DAKAR. She doesn't understand why she was sad.
--> We are riders. Most of us are kind and nice people. Helping each other is quite natural for us. And that is a part of riding I really like ...
RIP Thomas Bourgin
Rumour has it that Helder is selling his spare gas at the end of the special - housed in special commemorative vials $ 1,000 per cc
f5ixed for accuracy ...
Helder to Henke : and then we go ahead and blame it on an electrical fault...? :huh
Henke: "What...?!?! didn't you get the HRC twitter memo...??!!"
One picture, a thousand captions
35 minutes to start the Special
Not the best comparison , Caselli is a rookie with a a champion off road pedigree and Coma's bike
I believe there was only one fuel issue and we really don't know the reason, other than it has happened to Helder in a previous life also notwithstanding this whatever happened was nothing short of amateur
The HRC 450 - 100% a no, not podium material, but was the KTM and Husky 6 months after conception? - as you say not necessarily a bad thing, but I don't believe the pragmatists believed it was anything other than a 50/50 for 2013
let's revisit this for Dakar 2014, or as the year progresses
That Henke dude is kind of large, isn't he? :huh
I think that's the Chilean Army captain, Andres Carevic, that raced last year as well, I remember a picture of his bike in TFTB volume 1 that Ted had taken while the RMS team helped him out...
nice photo comparison
Or Henk to Helder "maybe we put a separate fuel gauge on each of the 5 fuel cells"
Helder " 5 fuel cells :huh".
Mornin'...! Any idea what happened to Luis and Manuel yesterday? Can't see Luis in the starting list? I can't even think he made it to the bivouac pushing his bike ...
fixed again for accuracy...
EDIT: damn 205'd as i was trying to figure out how to bold and quote!!!
The f5-ing possibilities are endless...
but enough of the ridicule...
time for some speculation...
Verhoeven leads out with Faria in pos 2. wearing a redbull(seye) on his back that Chaleco will have his sights honed in on?
Cyril is in a position where Pedrero can afford to park off the DSS start for two minutes and fall in behind Despres as WC for the day (leaving Faria free to defend against Chaleco). Caselli is also off the start just behind Cyril this morning (4 minutes) and there is the possibility (if the field bunch in a CAP/off piste/dune stage... or the fog plays a role) to send the US scud missile ahead to hang with Chaleco (if the Matighofen crew want to protect Ruebens 2nd place?).
In either case KTM pretty have 1st to 5th sewn up (aside from unforseen mechanical or a navigational blunder... so the "in fighting" may be limited to "in-hired gun" Chaleco trying to snatch 2nd or even the top step of the podium from the factory boys?
I would expect Chaleco to go WFO today... on home soil... if CDp is too conservative/cautios... lopez could put an eight to ten minute dent in Cyrils lead, by jumping up the order on the road - to the front - today.
Lots of cat and mouse today I predict!
right..... find a job, then sweep the f5rehose, then follow the stage.... have i got those in the right order???
The KTM 450 Rallye won it's first rally (and Dakar debut) first time out.
as did it's predecessor the 690 Rallye
as did the LC8 950 Rally before that
the difference is that they (KTM) had been racing and refining their craft and had over ten years of current experience to draw from AND engaged in 12 month programs of pre-event debut R&D and testing.
There's your apples and oranges comparison for you.
