Patrick had a good day today!
I can't tell you how impressed he was with the design...kept going on and on about it! yn
Provisional 59th - that is awesome. Quick but safe.
A perfect place to be, surrounded by competent riders, riding his ride!
Just spoke to Pat on the Sat. Phone.
He is in good spirits, had an amazing time, said he had so much fun!
Awesome first day. Got home from work on Saturday and my t-shirt had arrived in the mail. Cheering Patrick on from New Brunswick.
I know its late but I ordered my t-shirt just now.
Good to see him getting it done, and here's to him arriving safely at the finish!
Not too late - he needs all the financial support he can get!
Great ride so far! Keep it up.
Need to hook him up with Nate at rallyraidio.
The key to it all!
The second stage of the 2013 Dakar saw ALDO Racing/KTM Canada rider Patrick Beaulé cover the 85 km liaison out from Pisco and the 242 km special test forming a loop back to Pisco, with a great-big smile on his face.
"I had so much fun today. I mean it was really such a great ride!” said Beaulé following the stage.
“I was careful not to fall into some traps on the course early on -- there were some dangerous broken dunes [a steep drop-off like a sand-drift that the riders can inadvertently fly over at speed], as well some navigational challenges. I lost a bit of time around km 186 of the special with a navi [navigational error], but recovered quickly. The Aldo Racing/KTM Canada 450 Rallye Replica is working amazingly well, thanks to my super mechanic JF Charlot, and tonight we only need to focus on some very fine tuning of the suspension to better manage the changes between the soft dunes, and the hard-packed pistes.” added Beaulé.
Patrick finished the day 60th overall, only +36:17 from the winner of the stage; a great placement allowing him to ride tomorrow among competent riders, and away from much of the dust of the slower riders.

Today stage PISCO-NASCA for Patrick is sponsored by Anthony Mantella.
A BIG THANK YOU to Anthony for supporting the entire stage!
If you would like to help Patrick cross the finish line (and get into the financial black on the event!), you can still buy a few KM to ride along with him here:
Patrick Beaule is in!

Yay! Great run today!
I wore my t shirt to work today - must have helped!
Met Patrick at the Cord..a super guy! Bought a tee! Go Patrick!
Another steady day and another day of Dakar experience.
