    Is this actually happening? So much for an uneventful last day.

    If CD would have lost that much time he would have been passed by at least 2 riders most likely 3.

    ASO always gives us the drama we need, even if its unwarranted.:lol3

    Francisco López takes the penultimate special of the 2013 Dakar ahead of Spain's Joan Barreda, who lies in a provisional second place, 1'05" back. Cyril Despres is third at 2'20", followed by Paulo Gonçalves at 3'05". But we're waiting for some of the protagonists of today's special to finish in order to confirm this classification.

    So ıt should be a 6mın dıf between Despress and Lopez...

    I imagine SBS would have been great to watch this year with so many Aussies doing so well.

    Francisco Lopes was forced to change his engine yesterday evening and will therefore apply the fixed penalty 15 'on his arrival today. Even if it is not yet effective, it means that the Chilean no longer fighting now for the third Dakar 2013. His main opponent is Ivan Jakes.

    The guys writing the official Depeches are doing the same thing we are, just 5 hours slower.

    So, either there's an issue with the tracking, or there is an issue CdP?
    Or it's ASOle time again.
