    This is not entirely unplausible... and the only other explanation other than the fact that the results team just have not assesed/factored the (reputed) 15 minute engine exchange penalty for Chaleco...

    But you can bet that KTM management want (should) know what the real deal is... cause going into a final 17 km selective with a one second advantage is not something that's happened before...

    How long (for those who have a handle on the live time frame) until they make the end of the nutralized zone... and resume the second timed sector? :ear

    According to the live passage times, Chaleco is physically first on road about 10 minutes ahead (real time) of despres physically on course?

    Ha... after a January of 6 - 6.5 hrs of sleep per night it was very tempting to get some payback this Saturday morning. Following from PST kind of sucks, much easier when I was in Austin, TX in CST :D

    Faria's watercarrying for Despres, were 14' on stage 3 and another 2' on stage 8 (?). Can't remember if there were more. So, using a bit of that Robbie Gordon's logic "If my aunt had testicles she would be my uncle", Ruben would have won this Dakar IF :evil

    Dakar.com clearly says the 15 minutes will be added AFTER today's special. no real drama here at all.

    Nope, tracker is freaky, shows Despres 8 minutes back, we believe that's bullshit, top riders are on the huge neutralization.
