    Oh... I just came in from the snow (sleding with the lad) and saw Mischa's post, and checked the tracker times ... and... well you know...

    So what you telling me is that the useless fuicks that have been administering the clusterfuck of an excuse for timing/tracking and results for this multimillion dollar debacle couldn't even fdactor in the standard fifteen minute penalty awarded for an exgine exchange... so that the progressive overall times on the tracker don't show what the real overall is...?

    Dear ASO your web based result/real time tracking is a thing of ridicule. :wave

    At the moment, Ruben Faria holds the second best time at the finish of the first part of the special, 32" behind Francisco López. Joan Barreda is third, 8" behind the Portuguese rider. Frans Verhoeven, who was in the Top 3 at the previous checkpoints, has yet to finish.

    Dear ASO,

    Next year´s DAKAR please let Mischa deal with all your times/tracking, so we can have a more relaxed event.

    As we are big on rumour and tactics, I believe Chaleco had his mechanic drop the engine off the bike, turned the music up loud, took a load of pictures, made a post on Facebook and then put the same engine back again.

    He is now 1 second behind CDP :clap:clap:clap:clap

    Well, the engine in CDPs bike is also one that has been rolling the complete race, albeit in another bike for the first part (Dabrowskis). So Farias bike is not alone in having used only one engine.

    I could add an "ASO" button that messes the timing, so you will still have the fun. Or happy hours where everybody gets random results. :evil

    Let's work with this and call it the "miserable tracking user" concept. =)
